Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III dislocated his right ankle on Sunday, but the Redskins will not have to place him on injured reserve.
The Washington Redskins received a major blow in their Week 2 blowout win over the Jacksonville Jaguars when they lost starting quarterback Robert Griffin III to a dislocated ankle.
The injury was thought to be serious, but the Redskins received good news when it was announced that Griffin will not be placed on injured reserve.
This means the Redskins are optimistic that he can return later in the season. However, a quarterback controversy may grow bigger since Kirk Cousins looked excellent while filling in for Griffin.
Here is a tweet from the Redskins’ official Twitter account confirming the quarterback’s status.
Gruden said Griffin III will not be placed on season-ending IR.
