After six-plus games on the sideline, Robert Griffin III is back as the quarterback of the Washington Redskins.

“I feel great,” said Griffin, who dislocated his left ankle in the first quarter of the Week 2 victory over Jacksonville. “I’m real excited to get back out there. I’m going to lean on my guys to help me get through this game. I look forward to being able to dish [the ball] to them and let them do the work. With these guys around me, I don’t have to try to do too much. You’ve got to trust the guys around you. If there’s any rust, I’m sure they’ll overshadow me because they’re playing at a high level. (But) if there comes a time when I have to carry the team, I’m willing to do that”

Griffin returned to individual drills last week and the full practice on Wednesday.

“Robert got the majority of the [work] with the ones today and we have every intention of giving him the start,” said first-year coach Jay Gruden, who initially replaced Griffin with Kirk Cousins before turning to Colt McCoy at halftime of the Tennessee game on Oct. 19. “He’s done all the drills the right way. He made some good throws today. Everything’s checking out good.”

Griffin said he felt ready to play this past Monday at Dallas, which would have been the low end of the six-to-eight week timetable for the injury.

However, as Griffin explained, “We just wanted to give it a little bit more time and be smart about it. With the past, you learn from that, you learn from those mistakes.”

Pre-practice squabble

Friday’s practice at Valley Ranch began with Dallas Cowboys starting wide receiver Dez Bryant and reserve running back Joseph Randle jawing back and forth at each other.

After the team lined up for their pre-practice stretching, Randle kept talking. That caused Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, who was just in front of Randle, to turn around and yell and curse at the second-year player , “Don’t say nothing from here on out.”

Randle appeared to say something else, causing Witten to turn around again.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett declined comment on the pre-practice flare-up.

The incident occurred less than 24 hours after FOX 4 KDFW aired a portion of Randle’s arrest video from earlier this month.

While Randle was being booked at Frisco City Jail, the Cowboys running back can be heard asking a jail employee if he will be suspended by the Cowboys because of his arrest.

Randle then mentions the prior arrests of teammates Bryant and Josh Brent.

“Dez didn’t miss no games for smacking his mom,” Randle said.

“Josh Brent, he’s still up in the locker room,” Randle added. “He’s coming back. ... He was driving drunk. That’s stupid.”

Does Randle regret the comments he made he made in the video?

“I regret saying everything,” Randle responded Friday before declining further comment.

Randle was arrested on a misdemeanor charge for allegedly shoplifting a package of underwear and a tester bottle of cologne from a Frisco Dillard’s department store on Oct. 14.

Bryant was asked after Friday’s practice if the verbal exchange with Randle was related to the jail video.

“Nah, nah,” Bryant responded. “It ain’t no big deal. We got to get on these Arizona Cardinals, man. ... It’s all good, it’s all right. That ain’t no big deal.”
