The writing has been on the wall for RG3 for a long time and Dr. James Andrews medically cleared him last week. He announced his completion of Operation Patience on Twitter, so this was really nothing more than a confirmation.
Fantasy impact: He took the fantasy world by storm in his rookie season and those that took a chance on him as their starting quarterback in drafts this summer would have been disappointed with any other news. The team is expected to use him less as a running weapon, so expecting him to duplicate his 815 rushing yards would be a bit lofty. Pierre Garcon figures to be his favorite weapon and he'll offer upside to become a WR1 and can be targeted near the WR15-20 range. Fred Davis is also a decent option as a low-end TE1. Those that took Kirk Cousins in most leagues can move on since Griffin is a must-start player against an Eagles defense that has looked horrible this preseason.
