Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden says he has "every intent" of starting Robert Griffin III on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Gruden said Thursday that the Redskins feel Griffin is 100 percent recovered from a dislocated left ankle suffered in Week 2.

Griffin took most of the first-team snaps in practice ahead of Colt McCoy, who started Monday night's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Gruden hedged only a little, saying that there could be setback in the next two days that would prompt him to start McCoy again, but the coach said there's no sense in keep Griffin sidelined if healthy.
