Redskins optimistic RG3 will return this season

The Associated Press

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden is optimistic Robert Griffin III will return this season.

Gruden said Monday that an MRI shows no broken bones in Griffin's injured left ankle. He said the quarterback will be in a cast for a few weeks, and then the team will have an idea when Griffin could return.

Gruden said there's no consideration at this point of putting Griffin on season-ending injured reserve.

The quarterback dislocated his left ankle the first quarter of the Redskins' win Sunday over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The injury is often accompanied by a fracture that requires season-ending surgery. Without the need for surgery, Griffin could perhaps return in about two months.
