Redskins Injury Update: RGlll will be starter when healthy

By on 10/16/2014 10:48:00 PM

The Washington Redskins head coach, Jay Gruden, told reporters that Robert Griffin, lll will be the starting quarterback when he is healthy, as reported by Dan Hanzus from Around the NFL.

Griffin took part in individual drills alongside his Redskins teammates during Wednesday's practice.
Coach Gruden said Griffin "looked fine" and had "a little bounce to his step" participating in first on field drills. The coach also said right now the team does not know when Griffin will return from his dislocated ankle injury.

The Redskins hope Griffin can return sooner than later. The team is currently 1-5 and sits in last place in the NFC east. They are on a four-game losing streak and host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Kirk Cousins has been doing a decent job at quarterback. The team is just not winning. His numbers going into Sunday are 116 for 188 for a 61% passing average, 1,571 passing yards with ten touchdowns, and eight interceptions. The most glaring stat here is too many turnovers.

The Redskins will welcome back Griffin as the starter when he's ready to play. The big question for Griffin is: Can he stay healthy? Can he get back to playing the way he did in his breakout rookie season? Griffin has remained positive all along, but if anyone can overcome obstacles, it's Griffin. He has already been through a lifetime of ups and downs in his short career already.
