Redskins pencil in RG3 for comeback against Dallas Cowboys

Robert Griffin III could be set to return the Washington Redskins line up far ahead of early predictions, reports have revealed today.

RG3 left the field against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week Two with what was later diagnosed as a dislocated ankle and some had hypothesised that the injury-plagued quarterback could be done for the 2014 season.

Now though it looks like RG3 could be back in time to face NFC East rivals the Dallas Cowboys on October 27.

That is after NFL Insider Ian Rapoport revealed that the Washington Redskins themselves are working towards a plan that sees Robert Griffin III back in action in three weeks times.

Change in focus

There had been speculation that Griffin III's injury had in fact played into coach Gruden's hands by allowing back up Kirk Cousins into the offense - a man believed to be more in the mold of what the Redskins are trying to achieve in Washington.

But with Cousins struggling greatly against the Giants last week that idea seems to have lost credence almost as quickly as Cousins' quest for a long-term starting spot.

As such it looks like all focus has been shifted to getting RG3 back in uniform as quickly as possible.

At present the much-maligned QB is limited to watching on in a walking boot as his Redskins teammates look to improve on a 1-3 record but by Week Eight we might just be seeing him in action once again.
