Report: RGIII to Return to Redskins vs. Vikings on Sunday

imrsRobert Griffin III worked out with the first team in practice on Wednesday, sparking notions that he will return to the Washington Redskins this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Griffin hasn’t played since dislocating his left ankle in Week 2. A Washington, D.C., television station, citing unnamed sources, said the decision has been made that Griffin would supplant Colt McCoy, the third-string quarterback who led the Redskins to a 20-17 overtime win over the rival Dallas Cowboys on Monday night.

Griffin was a full participant Wednesday in practice for the first time since injuring his ankle and again took snaps with the first-team offense.

McCoy replaced an ineffective Kirk Cousins after halftime in the Redskins’ Week 7 win against the Titans and was solid against the Cowboys.

As for Griffin, coach Jay Gruden said Griffin must prove he’s capable of handling the “whole process of playing quarterback. Getting to the line of scrimmage, calling the plays, calling the runs the right way, dropping back, going through his progressions the right way. … Let’s see where he is from a mental standpoint.”

The thinking in D.C. is that Griffin will not play Sunday, but he will return after the bye week against Tampa. No official word has been given on his status.
