Robert Griffin III returns to practice for first time since dislocating ankle

Saturday October 4th, 2014

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III returned to the practice field Saturday for the first time since dislocating his left ankle in Week 2

Griffin, who had been wearing a hard cast in the immediate aftermath of the injury and later a walking boot, wore cleats on both feet and participated in agility and stretching drills, according to Mike Jones of The Washington Post. Griffin did not participate in any position drills, Jones said, but "appeared to jog fairly well."

Washington has declined to give a timetable for Griffin's return, which occurred on Sept. 14. ProFootballTalk reported the team hoped Griffin would miss four or five weeks, while the Post cited several surgeons who said the best case scenario would be a six- to eight-week recovery.
