Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin has not yet been ruled out for next Saturday's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens due to his concussion, according to the Washington Post. Griffin suffered the concussion in Thursday's game against the Detroit Lions and the team will have a clearer idea of his availability once he's gone through the league's concussion protocols.

Washington plans to pick up the fifth-year option on Griffin's contract, the Washington Post reports.

With the move, the team will retain Griffin's rights through the 2016 season. While the quarterback's injury history could have been a deterrent to such a decision, the team is obviously hoping that Griffin will stay healthy enough to return to the promising form that he displayed as a rookie in 2012. In any case, Griffin approaches the coming season as Washington's starting QB and yet further removed from the torn ACL that ended his 2012 season, as well as the ankle woes that hampered him last fall.

Speaking at the NFL combine, coach Jay Gruden noted that he anticipates Griffin being Washington's starter at QB heading into the 2015 season. "Robert ended the season as our starter and we anticipate that going forward," Gruden indicated Wednesday. "He'll be the No. 1 guy."Following a 2014 campaign in which the team started three signal-callers - Griffin, Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy -- Gruden has for now, at least, quieted a potential QB controversy leading up to the 2015 campaign. Per NFL.com, the decision to stick with Griffin seems largely tied to the team's "large-scale investment" in the QB, along with a lack of viable alternatives at this stage, either in-house or in free agency. Griffin is coming off a 2014 season in which he threw for 1,694 yards, to go along with just four touchdowns and six interceptions in nine games. He also ran 38 times for 176 yards and a TD in that span.
