Robert Griffin III will wear cast for 10 days, Then be re-evaluated




9/17/2014: Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will wear the cast on his dislocated left ankle for roughly 10 days and then will have it re-evaluated, with the hope of then proceeding to around a month and a half of rehabilitation, Coach Jay Gruden said.

The Redskins on Monday didn’t disclose a timeline for Griffin’s recovery and simply stated that he will miss an indefinite period of time. Gruden said Monday afternoon — the day after Griffin suffered the injury, and hours after the quarterback had an MRI exam on the ankle — that the results were being forwarded to Charlotte-based foot and ankle specialist Robert Anderson. He said that the team hadn’t received even a rough timeline for Griffin’s recovery. But on Wednesday, Gruden said Anderson’s findings didn’t turn up any additional damage, and that the Redskins now have a better idea of what to expect.

“He’s going to be in a cast for about 10 days, and they’ll re-evaluate after they take the cast off,” Gruden said. “But nothing new popped up as far as a new injury. It’s what we thought it was and it’s going to be 10 days in a cast and then it’ll be rehab process, probably four to six weeks, somewhere in there.”

Such a timeline would mean roughly an eight-week absence for Griffin, if all proceeds without a hitch. A group of orthopedic surgeons interviewed by The Post said on Sunday that a recovery of such length would represent the absolute best-case scenario.

But it’s unclear if Griffin would reclaim his starting job as soon as he received clearance. “We’ll cross that bridge when it comes,” Gruden said. - washington post
