News: Griffin (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. Impact: Since returning to practice last Wednesday, Griffin's rapid progress is aiding the belief that he'll be able to play Sunday at Minnesota. However, coach Jay Gruden called Wednesday's practice a "glorified walkthrough," while pointing to Thursday and Friday as the "key" to unlock active status in Week 9, John Keim of reports. According to Albert Breer of NFL Network, though, Griffin will split first-ream reps with Colt McCoy, whose performance Monday in Dallas -- 25-of-30 passing for 299 yards, one interception, and one rushing touchdown -- provides a fair fallback option for Gruden, if Griffin doesn't receive clearance.(RotoWire, )

News: RGIII will make his return on Sunday "if he shows he can handle the workload" in practices over the next two days, according to Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden. Impact: Gruden said Griffin will start "if he shows he can handle the workload tomorrow and Friday. If any soreness reoccurs or his isn't comfortable" then McCoy will start.(STATS, 11:29pm)

News: Griffin (ankle) will start for the Redskins on Sunday against the Vikings,'s Ian Rapoport reports. Impact: Griffin participated fully in Wednesday's practice, and has been able to log work on the practice field for just over a week now. He emerged from Wednesday's session feeling good, and will therefore take over the reigns as the starter, delegating Colt McCoy to a backup role. His practice reps Thursday and Friday should be almost exclusively with the first-team offense, but we'll confirm that as the week rolls along.(RotoWire, )

News: Griffin III's practice status has been upgraded, but it's still not certain when he will make his first start in his return from an ankle injury. Impact: Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Griffin went from "limited to "full" during Wednesday's light practice. The coach said Griffin will get a few more snaps with the first-team unit this week and "there's a chance" Griffin could start Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.(STATS, 3:29pm)
Tue. Oct 28, 2014
News: Griffin (ankle) is "very, very, very close" to being cleared for game action, according to coach Jay Gruden, the Washington Post reports. Impact: Griffin returned as a limited participant during practice last week, but fell just short of being able to play in Monday's win over the Cowboys. While Gruden expects Wednesday's practice to be more of a walkthrough, the team doctors reportedly just need to deem Griffin comfortable enough in the pocket in order to grant him the ability to play. Nonetheless, it appears Griffin stands a favorable chance of being cleared for Sunday's game against the Vikings, although his status will still need to be tracked for confirmation one way or another.(RotoWire, )

News: Griffin (ankle) will be the Redskins' starting quarterback once he's cleared to return from injury, reports. Impact: Griffin has been sidelined since Week 2 due to an ankle injury, but has returned to practice recently. Since Griffin was a limited participant throughout last week, backup Colt McCoy was able to start Monday and engineered a gutsy road win against the Cowboys. Nonetheless, the Redskins have deemed Griffin their starter once he's ready to play in game action, which could come as early as Sunday at Minnesota or following Washington's Week 10 bye. Therefore, Griffin's status should be monitored closely during the coming practice week, as he'll reclaim the keys to the Redskins' offense before long.(RotoWire, )

News: Griffin (ankle) is inactive for Monday night's game against Dallas. Impact: As a result, Kirk Cousins is slated to serve as starter Colt McCoy's backup Monday, with Griffin presumably a candidate to return to the lineup as soon as Week 9's contest against the Vikings after having practiced this past week. It's also possible that the team plays it safe with Griffin and keeps him out of action through the team's Week 10 bye, an outcome that would be easier to imagine if McCoy turns in a solid effort on Monday night.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 27, 2014
News: Griffin (ankle) won't play in Monday night's game against the Cowboys, reports. Impact: Griffin returned as a limited participant throughout the practice week but isn't healthy enough to suit up for game action just yet. As a result, he's slated to miss his sixth straight game, which will allow Colt McCoy to start at quarterback.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Oct 25, 2014
News: Griffin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Cowboys. Impact: Griffin was able to practice in a limited capacity throughout the week, suggesting a return on the horizon, though coach Jay Gruden reiterated Friday that the team is preparing as if Colt McCoy will start against Dallas. Meanwhile, Griffin stressed that he won't play until his dislocated ankle is completely healthy, so while there is a chance he could be a surprise omission from the team's inactive list Monday, most owners will likely want to play it safe and start their alternative in Week 8.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Oct 24, 2014
News: Although Griffin (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday, Washington still plans to start Colt McCoy against Dallas on Monday, the Washington Post reports. Impact: Griffin's return is likely imminent regardless of whether McCoy plays well against Dallas on Monday, but for now it does appear that McCoy will at least get Monday's game for an extended audition. Unfortunately for Griffin owners and those looking to stream McCoy this week, the situation might not get conclusively settled until Monday.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Jay Gruden won't make a decision on active status for Griffin (ankle) until one hour before Monday's 8:30 PM ET kickoff at Dallas, reports. Impact: Griffin is "steadily progressing" in his recovery, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network, but Thursday morning has come and gone without a definitive report from Gruden on the quarterback's left ankle. Nevertheless, Gruden all but confirmed Colt McCoy as Monday's starter, stating "oh yeah" when queried. While McCoy seems certain to be under center Monday, Griffin himself logged a second limited practice in a row Thursday, which included a handful of first-team reps. As his health allows for additional practice reps, though, Gruden will have to walk a tight rope of keeping McCoy in the loop while ensuring Griffin is growing accustomed to live action once again.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Oct 22, 2014
News: Coach Jay Gruden indicated that Griffin is progressing and did some team drills at practice Wednesday, but suggested that "the big thing" will be how the quarterback's ankle feels Thursday morning, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. Impact: While the strides that Griffin has made are promising, Gruden doesn't sound inclined to rush the QB back at this stage, noting Wednesday, "if it's another week, two weeks after the bye, so be it." For now, it appears that Washington is preparing as though Colt McCoy will start Monday's game against Dallas, with Gruden adding Wednesday that he would like to have a determination with regard to his team's Week 8 signal-caller by Thursday afternoon.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Oct 20, 2014
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, )
Mon. Oct 20, 2014
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, )
Wed. Oct 15, 2014
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, )
