    Though Redskins coach Jay Gruden has not publicly ruled out the possibility of Robert Griffin III returning from his dislocated ankle Monday against the Cowboys, sources tell News4's Dianna Russini that he will not play and Colt McCoy will start. 

    Griffin, who has not played since Week 2 against the Jaguars, received a heavier workload at practice Wednesday while wearing a protective brace on his left ankle. Gruden said that McCoy is the projected starter against Dallas "as of right now."

    "I'd like to make a decision tomorrow after practice," Gruden told reporters Wednesday.

    McCoy replaced Kirk Cousins in the second half of Washington's win against Tennessee last week, completing 11 of 12 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown.
