Griffin has cameo appearance at Redskins practice

October 4, 2014

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Robert Griffin III’s recovery is progressing enough for him to make a cameo appearance at practice.

The Washington Redskins quarterback joined his teammates for stretching Saturday, but he left once the players split up to begin their drills. Nevertheless, it was his first time he has been at a practice when reporters were present since he dislocated his left ankle in the season opener. He was wearing cleats instead of a walking boot.

There’s still no timetable for Griffin’s return, but he isn’t expected back for several weeks at the earliest. Coach Jay Gruden would only say that Griffin is “making progress.”

Gruden also said cornerback Tracy Porter has been ruled out for Monday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. Porter aggravated a right hamstring injury last week.
