According to reports, Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will miss 6-8 weeks with a dislocated ankle.
SMITTY: The good news for Griffin is that an MRI revealed no fracture. The bad news for Griffin is that Kirk Cousins has a lot of supporters, and apparently Jay Gruden is one of them. He deserves a shot to run this offense. I hate saying that because I love Griffin, but the guy can’t stay healthy, and Cousins has proven enough to get a run at this offense even if Griffin is near-ready to return. If Cousins does well in this 6-8 week window, expect Washington to hold off on bringing Griffin back. Be sure to sign-up for our Smart Alerts to get updates on this situation.
