Redskins planning for RGIII's return vs. Cowboys


Robert Griffin III returned to the practice field sans a walking boot Saturday for some stretching drills with his teammates.

It was a positive step for the Washington Redskins quarterback as he works back from a dislocated ankle suffered in Week 2.

That step puts him on pace to return to the lineup prior to the team's Week 10 bye. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday on NFL GameDay First that the Redskins' plan is for RGIII to be back in three weeks.

That would put Griffin on the field Oct. 27 (Week 8) to face the division rival Dallas Cowboys.

The immediate narrative following RGIII's injury was whether Kirk Cousins would usurp the starting role. After last week's disastrous performance against the New York Giants, the plot flipped -- and now the team can't wait to get RGIII back on the field.
