"Robert has to, first of all, be honest with himself and how he's feeling," Redskins Coach
Griffin, the 2012 offensive rookie of the year, has been sidelined since dislocating his left ankle in Week 2 against Jacksonville.
"I wouldn't rule him out. He's got a ways to go to show that he can play, show that that ankle's 100%. That's the big thing," Gruden said. "
Cousins, who took over as the starter during Griffin's absence, was benched at halftime after his 10th and 11th turnovers of the season, and McCoy led the comeback that ended a four-game losing streak for the Redskins (2-5).
A series of decisions will need to be made for Griffin to return. First, the team trainer and doctors will need to give the go-ahead.
Then Griffin will need to say OK, after figuring out, according to Gruden, "Can he cut without pain? Can he run without pain? Is he full speed? Is it sturdy enough?"
"And if he says, 'Yes,' then I have to feel comfortable about putting Robert out there in the game," Gruden explained.

Harvin looks ahead
Percy Harvin has been called lots of things during his NFL career.
Talented but injury prone. Explosive on the field and combustible off.
The New York Jets' newest wide receiver doesn't deny he has had some issues. But he also wants to be judged from what he does starting now, not just his checkered past.
"I'm definitely not a perfect person," Harvin said after his first practice with his new team Monday. "I have a lot of things that I wish I could have done a little differently. But I'm moving forward. I'm learning from those lessons.
"I'm happy to be here right now and looking to make the most out of it," he said.
The Jets and
Harvin, 26, has played in 60 games with only 47 career starts. He was traded from Minnesota to the Seahawks in 2013 for a 2013 first-round and seventh-round draft choice and a 2014 third-rounder, but appeared in just one regular-season game in 2013 because of hip surgery. But Harvin ran back a second-half kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown in Seattle's 43-8 rout of Denver in the Super Bowl.
