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

Griffin (dislocated left ankle) is currently expected to miss at least six weeks, the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Six weeks is the best-case scenario. Even if he's able to recover in that time, it's uncertain whether he'll be ready to take the field. Kirk Cousins remains the starting QB for now.
Griffin is slated to wear a cast on his dislocated left ankle for about 10 days, after which he will be re-evaluated, the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Beyond that, a precise timetable for Griffin's possible return has not been outlined, though coach Jay Gruden suggested a potential scenario in which the QB's rehab process might run in the four-to-six week range. In any case, while the report offers continued hope that Griffin could return to action later this season, he is still looking at a multiple-week absence, with Kirk Cousins slated to start at quarterback for the team in the meantime.
Griffin did not break any bones when he dislocated his left ankle Sunday and is expected to avoid surgery, the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Per coach Jay Gruden, there's still no exact timetable for Griffin's return, but there is some optimism that the QB could be healthy before the end of the season. “We’ll know in a few more weeks as far as how long he will be out," Gruden noted Monday. "We’re going to send his results of the MRI off to Dr. [Robert] Anderson, a foot and ankle specialist, and get it casted up and we’ll just go from there." Moreover, Gruden added that Griffin will definitely not be placed on IR by the team. In the meantime, Kirk Cousins will start at quarterback for Washington, backed up by Colt McCoy.
Griffin indicated that a Monday morning MRI revealed no fractures in his ankle, Mike Jones of Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While it's clear that Griffin is going to miss time after suffering a dislocated ankle Sunday, it appears as though he could avoid surgery. There's still no precise timetable for his recovery, however, with Kirk Cousins now in line to handle the team's QB duties in the coming weeks.
Depending on Monday's MRI, Griffin (ankle) could be out eight weeks or several months, the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The severity depends on if there are any broken bones or torn ligaments in the ankle. In any scenario, it sounds like Griffin will be out for an extended period.
Coach Jay Gruden confirmed that Griffin suffered a dislocated ankle Sunday against the Jaguars, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

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.
