Robert Griffin III got relatively good news after an MRI today.
Griffin, who left Sunday’s game in Washington with an ankle injury, said today that an MRI revealed he does not have a fracture and does not think he will need surgery. According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Griffin termed the results “positive.”
That’s not to say Griffin is necessarily close to returning to the field: He’s in a cast and on crutches, and he said there are still more test results to go over.
But it does sound like relatively good news for Washington’s franchise quarterback. Now the question is whether Griffin will still be viewed as Washington’s franchise quarterback when he’s ready to return, or whether Kirk Cousins can continue playing like he did on Sunday, and raise questions about who the team’s best quarterback really is.
