News: 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. Impact: Moreover, Gruden relayed that if Griffin doesn't start next Monday's game against Dallas -- which seems like a plausible outcome at this stage -- then Colt McCoy would draw the nod at QB over Kirk Cousins.(RotoWire, )

News: 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. Impact: The team plans to put Griffin through a rigorous workout this week to see how the ankle responds. At this stage, it seems unlikely that he'll return to the Washington lineup this coming weekend, with a potential Week 9 return against Minnesota appearing to be a more plausible scenario. We'll let you know, however, if that assessment changes in the coming days.(RotoWire, )

News: 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. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Griffin (ankle) will begin individual drills Wednesday, Chris Russell of ESPN 980 Washington D.C. reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday that he doesn't envision Griffin (ankle) returning "any time soon," the Washington Post reports. Impact: 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.(RotoWire, )

News: Griffin threw passes in individual and one-on-one drills in the early part of practice Wednesday, his first such work since he dislocated his left ankle in Week 2. Impact: Coach Jay Gruden has said Griffin might begin taking full-team snaps next week. Griffin isn't expected to play until Nov. 2 against Minnesota at the earliest. A more likely scenario has him back Nov. 16 against Tampa Bay following the bye. (STATS, 5:39pm)
