Robert Griffin: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

While coach Jay Gruden said Monday that he can't yet rule Griffin (ankle) out for Week 8, he noted on that front that the QB "has a long way to go. He has a lot to show," Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Griffin (ankle) is expected to return to practice Wednesday, the Washington Post reports. He's been out since dislocating his ankle on Sept. 14. Coach Jay Gruden has stated in the past that he wants to see Griffin practice for two weeks before putting him back on the field.

Griffin (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Washington's official site reports. Afterward, coach Jay Gruden told that Griffin will retain his starting job upon receiving clearance to play.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin's activity was contained to individual drills, but Gruden said that the quarterback "looked fine" and had "a little bounce to his step." Currently, no timetable exists for Griffin to return to the fold, but the struggles of Kirk Cousins haven't endeared himself to the coaching staff, as he's turned the ball over nine times and lost four consecutive starts.
Griffin (ankle) will begin individual drills Wednesday, Chris Russell of ESPN 980 Washington D.C. reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin is no longer wearing a walking boot on his injured ankle but is also not considered close to being ready to play in a game. So while Kirk Cousins will continue to start for the Redskins moving forward, Griffin will at least go through individual drills this week. If all goes well, Griffin could practice in team portions next week, but his status will have to be monitored along the way.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday that he doesn't envision Griffin (ankle) returning "any time soon," the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Griffin, having shed his protective boot, stretched on the field with his teammates prior to Saturday's practice, but Gruden dispelled any notion that he could return to practice in the short term, saying that the next step for Griffin would likely be to simply increase his workload on the treadmill. Gruden declined to even guess at a possible timetable, making a return for Week 8 seem unlikely, contrary to an NFL Network report suggesting that was the target date for Griffin. Kirk Cousins is now 0-3 as a starter this season, but according to a person with knowledge of the situation, there is still no guarantee Griffin will immediately assume the role of starter once healthy.

There's probably no quarterback more difficult to project than Griffin. We know players have recently been able to return from torn knees at a faster rate than ever before, but we've never seen it with a quarterback who relies so much on his legs. While Griffin is certainly a remarkable passer, a huge portion of his yards came off of play-action, read-option looks, and those were set up by his prowess as a runner. Actually, he turned in the highest passer rating off of play-action looks in the history of the NFL. If defenses don't fear his legs, though, they won't respect him as a runner, and that could drastically change the nature of the Redskins' offense. As it stands right now, it's a safe bet Griffin won't match his 2012 rushing numbers. The Redskins coaches will hold him back, at least early in the season, so the quarterback's versatility won't be such a major factor in his success. If Griffin is going to remain among fantasy football's elite, he'll need to beat defenses through the air. He did it last year to the tune of a 65.6 percent completion rate and 8.1 YPA, but again, we'll need to see how the nature of Washington’s offense might shift.


Even if Griffin struggles in real football terms as a rookie, his likely high pass-attempt volume in Washington should result in big aggregate numbers. Despite enduring the clownish play of Rex Grossman and John Beck, the Redskins voluntarily subjected themselves to 591 pass attempts in 2011, which ranked as the fifth-highest total in the league. Given the team’s additions of free-agent wide receivers Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan and the late-season 2011 emergence of running backs Roy Helu and Evan Royster, Griffin will also have better weapons with which to work. With a deep ball that should be among the league’s best from Day 1 and 4.41 speed, Griffin should make good use of those weapons, especially down field. Moreover, a significant number of those pass attempts will be converted to scramble runs by Griffin, which figures to be a huge aid to his fantasy value given that he ran for 2,254 yards and 33 touchdowns in 41 games at Baylor – and that’s with the NCAA subtracting yardage for sacks.
