Gruden added the team will try to build the offense around Griffin's strengths. He said it's important for the run game to be effective in order for Griffin to be productive.
"It's important for our offense to rally around him, and to play well around him, also," Gruden said. "Moving forward, this is Robert's team right now."
Griffin, who was benched for poor performance three weeks ago, put together arguably his best performance of the season Sunday. He completed 18 of 27 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for 46 yards to finish the game with 19 Fantasy points.
McCoy's injury doesn't seem too serious, but it is possible Griffin remains in the starting lineup moving forward anyways. The Eagles come up on the schedule in Week 16, and Griffin would be just a desperation play at this point in the season.
Griffin completed 18 of 27 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for 46 yards on five carries. Sadly, Griffin was under pressure all afternoon. He was sacked seven times and fumbled three times.
While Griffin wasn't credited with any lost fumbles, he did have an 8-yard touchdown run on the final play of the first half overturned because it was ruled he was fumbling the football as he went into the end zone.
Griffin's lone touchdown pass was a 9-yarder to running back Chris Thompson in the second quarter, which put Washington ahead 10-7.
The Redskins are back in action Week 16 vs. Philadelphia.
"We've got to look at film and see where we stand," coach Jay Gruden said about his quarterback situation. "Robert's definitely in the mix. He came out here and competed, which I like."
"Your confidence can’t be shaken by anything that happens in your career," Griffin said after Wednesday’s practice. "So, for me, my confidence is still sky high."
McCoy was limited in practice Wednesday after suffering a neck strain in Week 14. Coach Jay Gruden has yet to name a starter for Week 15.
"Whatever Coach decides as far as the quarterback position, what we’re going to do going forward, that’s up to him," Griffin said. "I’m just here to help this team win."
The Redskins enter Sunday's matchup with the Giants on a five-game losing streak and with a 3-10 record on the season.
"I know you guys are contacting all your sources available, but you guys are not gonna know this week," Gruden said Wednesday.
McCoy, who sufferd a neck strain in Week 14, was limited in practice Wednesday. Gruden said McCoy "has a chance" to start.
