Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden wouldn't rule out the possibility of Robert Griffin III returning for Monday's game against the Dallas Cowboys, but he named third-string Colt McCoy as the team's starting quarterback. Griffin "still has a long way to go," Gruden said during Monday's news conference. "I wouldn't rule him out, but he has got a way to go to show that he can play, show that his ankle is 100 percent." Griffin dislocated his left ankle in the first quarter of Washington's Sept. 14 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and has been sidelined since. Backup Kirk Cousins stepped in to win that game but lost the next four and was benched at halftime Sunday against Tennessee in favor of McCoy. McCoy's first throw against the Titans, a short throw to Pierre Garcon, went for a 70-yard touchdown. He finished 11 of 12 for 128 yards and engineered three scoring drives, including a go-ahead touchdown and the field goal that clinched the 19-17 victory with three seconds left.
