Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will have total reconstructive surgery of his right knee Wednesday, ESPN.com reported.

In a story on its website, Chris Mortensen reported that Griffin will undergo surgery to repair torn anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments but is expected to be ready for the start of next season.

The report cited team sources familiar with the determination made by Dr. James Andrews, who will perform the operation.

Griffin is expected to face a six- to eight-month rehabilitation.

Griffin sprained the LCL in a game last month. He was reinjured during Sunday's playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Raiders: Middle linebacker Rolando McClain was out on bail after an arrest in Decatur, Ala., on charges of violating rules on car window tint and trying to lie to police about his identity.

Authorities at the Decatur City Jail said McClain was pulled over Tuesday because of the tint violation. When McClain was asked to sign a ticket, police said he provided a false name. McClain was taken into custody and posted $1,000 bond.

McClain, 23, spent the last two games of the season on the inactive list after serving a two-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.

Raiders officials were made aware of the arrest but declined comment.

McClain was found guilty last November in municipal court of misdemeanor charges including reckless endangerment, menacing and illegal discharge of a firearm in connection with a fight.

The charges were dropped when the victim, Rishard Tapscott, a childhood friend of McClain, declined to continue with the case on appeal.

The Raiders are expected to release McClain this offseason. He is scheduled to make $4 million in salary in 2013. McClain was removed from the team's nickel defense four games into the season and then replaced in the final two games at middle linebacker by Omar Gaither.
