Griffin is slated to wear a cast on his dislocated left ankle for about 10 days, after which he will be re-evaluated, the Washington Post reports.
Beyond that, a precise timetable for Griffin's possible return has not been outlined, though coach Jay Gruden suggested a potential scenario in which the QB's rehab process might run in the four-to-six week range.

The signal-caller appeared visibly distraught by the injury and was wearing a cast while leaving the field. While Griffin will not return to face the Jaguars, it's unknown if his latest injury will sideline him beyond Sunday's contest. With Griffin out, Kirk Cousins will assume quarterback duties for the Redskins.

Griffin was carted off during Sunday's game with an aircast on his left ankle and foot, CBS Sports reports.
Griffin suffered a non-contact injury while making a throw along the Redskins' sideline and was down for quite some time before being carted to Washington's locker room. Although he was wearing a cast over his left ankle, it's worth noting that Griffin's surgically repaired left knee appeared unaffected by his latest injury incident. Nonetheless, the Redskins' quarterback appeared visibility distraught while heading to the locker room for further evaluation. As a result, Kirk Cousins will command Washington's offense until further notice.

Griffin completed 29-of-37 passes for 267 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Sunday's 17-6 loss at Houston. He rushed for just two yards on three carries, and lost a fumble on a botched handoff attempt.
Griffin was sacked three times, and under a lot of pressure, so it's not entirely surprising that he failed to generate much scoring. On the flip side, Griffin has enough talent around him to at least score an offensive touchdown. He should see his numbers improve in Week 2, as he'll head home to take on Jacksonville, which allowed 322 yards and two touchdowns to Nick Foles on Sunday.
