RGIII: No fracture to ankle, hope to return this season

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WWBT) -

An MRI performed on Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin II showed no fracture, according to the third-year star.

Griffin said he hopes to return this season after receiving the results of the scan, however he was not able to give a timetable for his return.

Griffin left the first quarter of Sunday's 41-10 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars after he completed a 11-yard pass to DeSean Jackson, but came down on his left ankle. Trainers spent several minutes tending to Griffin, before placing his leg in a splint and carting him to the locker room.

Kirk Cousins replaced Griffin and completed his first 12 passes, finishing the game completing 22 of 33 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns.

Jackson was also injured later in the game. He suffered an AC joint sprain and is considered day-to-day. His status from Sunday's match up versus the Philadelphia Eagles, his former team, remains unclear.

The Redskins improved to 1-1. The Jaguars are 0-2 for the third consecutive season.
