Two media outlets are reporting that Robert Griffin III says an MRI showed no broken bones in his injured left ankle, leaving open the possibility that he could play again this season.

The Washington Post and ESPN.com reported that the Washington Redskins quarterback said Monday that he "positive news" on the results from the exam on the dislocated left ankle he suffered in the first quarter of the Redskins' win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The injury is often accompanied by a fracture that requires season-ending surgery. If he doesn't need surgery, Griffin could perhaps return in about two months, depending on various other factors associated with the injury.

The Redskins are waiting for a doctor to review the MRI results before offering more details.
