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.
News: McCoy remains the Washington Redskins starting quarterback as of "right now" - but the coach Jay Gruden called Robert Griffin III a "wild card" who still has a chance to start Monday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Impact: Gruden said Wednesday that Griffin still needs to be cleared for full contact and satisfy the coaches that he's ready in order to play. The coach said he'd like to make a final decision by the end of practice Thursday.
