Gruden said he does not have a timeline for Griffin's possible return this season and that the Redskins may bring in another quarterback while Griffin rehabs the ankle.
"[I]t is believed that Griffin could avoid surgery," Jones wrote.
Griffin was carted off the field and replaced by Kirk Cousins, who completed 22 of 33 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns.
Griffin was on crutches and wearing a cast on his foot in the Washington facility Monday.
