Report: Robert Griffin III will not play Monday

There were signs of optimism for Washington after getting quarterback Robert Griffin III some drill work on Wednesday.

However, it doesn't appear the former second overall pick will be ready to go Monday night when his team takes on the Cowboys. According to NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini, Griffin will not play. Griffin is still recovering from a dislocated ankle suffered during Week 2's game against Jacksonville.

Griffin was able to do individual drills in practice, though that's all the local media was able to see. With Griffin not being able to go, Colt McCoy will start at quarterback against Dallas.

McCoy replaced Kirk Cousins in the second half of Sunday's 19-17 win over Tennessee. McCoy was calculated and efficient, going 11-for-12 for 128 yards and a touchdown during his half of play. McCoy will likely be asked to fill a game manager's role until Griffin is able to come back. Cousins, conversely, was a turnover machine as he tossed nine interceptions in six games.
