Dislocated ankle confirmed for Robert Griffin III


Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III has been diagnosed with a dislocated ankle after leaving today’s game against the Jaguars.

The injury came when his ankle bent awkwardly as he was rolling out in the first quarter. It looked ugly, and the diagnosis is no surprise.

What we don’t know yet is how much time Griffin will miss. He is expected to undergo more tests on Monday to determine the severity of the injury.

Griffin, the franchise quarterback who suffered a serious knee injury at the end of his stellar 2012 rookie season, may now have a long rehabilitation for a serious ankle injury as well. While Griffin is out, Kirk Cousins will start.

Washington coach Jay Gruden also confirmed that receiver DeSean Jackson and running back Roy Helu are day-to-day. Jackson suffered an AC sprain in his shoulder and Helu suffered a quadriceps injury.
