Robert Griffin III to increase workload

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will take another step in his recovery from a dislocated left ankle when practice resumes Wednesday.

Coach Jay Gruden said Griffin will participate in individual drills, with the hope of getting him some reps during full-team work the following week.

Griffin has slowly started to return, first stretching with the team two weeks ago and then last week doing agility work on the side during practice. He also threw off to the side.

But the Redskins still aren’t sure when Griffin will return from his dislocated ankle, which he suffered in Week 2 against Jacksonville.

“As far as taking practice reps, that will be at least another week,” Gruden said. “[Wednesday] will be the first step and next week maybe we’ll try to get him in practice situations and see where he is.”

That would still make him a longshot for the Oct. 27 game at Dallas, which would be only five weeks after the initial dislocation. There was never a timetable placed on Griffin’s return.
