  Redskins | Jordan Reed limited in practice    Thu Nov 27, 02:31 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Footballguys view: Washington is being cautious here with Reed...and for good reason. Hamstring injuries can linger if not given enough time to properly heal. Reed's not much of a fantasy option this week, and you likely have better plays at the position on your team.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III likely done with team    Thu Nov 27, 09:46 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is highly unlikely to return to the team next season, sources within the organization said. Head coach Jay Gruden convinced owner Daniel Snyder and team president/general manager Bruce Allen that change was necessary. Some within the organization feel Griffin should have spent less time in the weight room and more on honing other parts of his game.

Footballguys view: We were always LOLing at the "he's still part of their long-term plans" reports. Sorry, but you bench this guy at this point in the season for a journeyman like Colt McCoy and it's over. Never say never, but this relationship is fractured. If Griffin can get back to the player he was as a rookie (but with a new team), then a change of scenery is a good thing.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed limited    Wed Nov 26, 02:50 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners have moved on from Reed a while ago. Now that Colt McCoy is in at quarterback, we should see a more bountiful Washington passing game. That being said, we're cool on Reed's prospects if he plays.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin needs more seasoning    Wed Nov 26, 02:47 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III needs more seasoning, and he'll likely do it from the bench for the rest of this season, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin is under contract for one more year, and he could still be in their long-term plans. 'Robert has done some good things at quarterback, but I just think he needs a little bit more time in this system with the verbiage and the plays to sit back, take a step back and learn, and when he gets back in there he'll be a lot more decisive, hopefully, and ready to roll,' Gruden said. The 'Skins want Griffin to eventually become more of a pocket passer, and they want him to be able to regain confidence in his abilities.

Footballguys view: Griffin needs a complete reset. His mechanics are beyond flawed, and his confidence has to be shaken after getting benched. That's the main hurdle for Griffin to overcome-the mental side of this. He's an emotional leader, but those emotions can work against him as he's arguably too sensitive to criticism. We'll see if Griffin can make things right in Washington.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy could start past Week 13    Wed Nov 26, 12:58 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy will start past Week 13 if he plays well, although the move may not be permanent.

Footballguys view: Once McCoy was announced as the starter, all bets were off for Robert Griffin III. Reports indicate he's still in the team's long-term plans, but this is also the same coach (Jay Gruden) who said that Griffin was starting in Week 13 on Monday. According Gruden, McCoy gives the team the best chance to win now.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy officially starting    Wed Nov 26, 09:33 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has officially been benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy in Week 13. Head coach Jay Gruden informed the team Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Footballguys view: The Griffin era may be coming to a close in Washington. Griffin's mechanics have been off this year, and that has been hurting his accuracy. His decision making has been poor as well. McCoy looked good in limited action this year, and his teammates loves him. In two appearances this year, McCoy has completed 85.7 percent of his passes. While some believe Griffin could still be a large part of their long-term plans, McCoy could remain the starter for the rest of the season.

  Redskins | RG3 still part of long-term plan    Tue Nov 25, 11:36 PM

The Washington Redskins are planning on benching QB Robert Griffin III for the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts in favor of QB Colt McCoy. However, Griffin still appears to be part of the team's long-term plan, another source said Tuesday, Nov. 25.

Footballguys view: We're having a little trouble seeing how Griffin would be part of their long-term plans after getting benched during this point in the season. The team gave up so much to acquire him in the 2012 NFL draft that they'll give Griffin every opportunity to be the franchise quarterback he was supposed to be. However, it wouldn't shock us to see Washington draft another quarterback in the 2015 NFL draft to compete with Griffin for the starting job.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy to start in Week 13    Tue Nov 25, 11:35 PM

  Redskins | 'Leave door open for QB change?    Tue Nov 25, 02:42 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was named the starter for Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Nov. 24, by head coach Jay Gruden, but he left open some wiggle room to make a change during the week. "It's Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock, and right now we have every intent for Robert, but we'll look at the tape and make our evaluations here shortly," Gruden said.

Footballguys view: Griffin is on thin ice with his team. His mechanical flaws are leading to poor accuracy, and his bad decisions haven't helped his play. Griffin is athletic, but he's not running as effectively as he used to. Confined more to the pocket, Griffin has struggled to improve his game.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin will start Week 13    Mon Nov 24, 03:23 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will start Sunday, Nov. 30, against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Griffin might be on a short leash if he continues to struggle as the team's starter. His mechanics have been bad this year, and that's negatively impacting his accuracy. We'll see if Griffin can turn it around and keep the starting job for the rest of the season. There's already questions swirling around his future with the team and if they should start looking for another franchise quarterback.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris no longer overthinking    Mon Nov 24, 01:26 PM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris, who ran 21 times for 126 yards in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12, gained most of his yardage after contact and entered the game against the Niners averaging 1.95 yards after contact. He's averaging 5.39 yards per carry in the last three games, according to ESPN Stats & Information. "I stopped hesitating," Morris said of his improved running. "I was trying to see too much."

Footballguys view: The Washington offense is pretty much a dumpster fire outside of Morris. The tough-running back did his fantasy owners a solid in Sunday. Week 12 was Morris' first 100-yard effort of the year, and he's fifth in rushing with 826 yards.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris tops century mark    Sun Nov 23, 11:42 PM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris averaged 6.0 yards per attempt on 21 carries in the Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers. It was his first 100-yard game of the season, and first since Nov. 7, 2013, against the Minnesota Vikings. 'I stopped trying to think too much,' Morris said Sunday, Nov. 23. 'I said this weeks ago: I was thinking too much. I've been playing this game since I was five. I know how to be a runner. I just stopped thinking and stopped trying to make things happen that weren't there.'

Footballguys view: Morris is by far the best thing about this bad offense. He still deserves a spot in your lineup next week against the Colts defense Jonas Gray gashed in Week 11.

  Redskins | Tracy Porter to have MRI Monday    Sun Nov 23, 11:42 PM

Washington Redskins CB Tracy Porter (shoulder) injured his shoulder in the Week 12 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

He said he is hopeful he will not miss any time, but acknowledged he'll know more after an MRI Monday, Nov. 24.

The Washington Redskins have declared CB David Amerson, NT Chris Baker, QB Kirk Cousins, WR Leonard Hankerson, TE Jordan Reed, WR Aldrick Robinson, OT Trent Williams inactive for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Reed has a new hamstring problem, but at least it is not the hamstring that sidelined him earlier this year. Colt McCoy is poised to get on the field ahead of Kirk Cousins if Robert Griffin III falters today.

  Redskins | Clock ticking on Robert Griffin III    Sun Nov 23, 10:07 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's point of emphasis is to get the ball out quickly Sunday, Nov. 23. Head coach Jay Gruden has dumbed down the offense to allow quick throws to playmakers and make for easy reads. The landscape within the organization has changed for Griffin, though. Gruden has the authority to bench Griffin, and it could happen if he doesn't play well enough. Things behind the scenes, like special rules allowing Griffin's family to have total access to the facility, has changed as well.

Footballguys view: The Colt McCoy era in Washington could be upon us, albeit a likely short-lived one. Griffin is obviously a very shaky play today.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin critiqued by coach    Mon Nov 17, 03:21 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III had fundamental flaws and below average footwork Sunday, Nov. 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Griffin looks like a shadow of his former self. It's not just the knee problems that have slowed him down, Griffin looks like he's rushing things mechanically as a passer. His technique runs hot and cold---and so does his decision making. With his propensity for making mistakes, Griffin makes for a risky fantasy play.

  Redskins | Jordan Reed strains hamstring    Sun Nov 16, 07:19 PM

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) suffered a strained hamstring in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It is unclear if it is related to the hamstring injury that caused him to miss four games earlier in the season.

Footballguys view: Reed seems like one of those players who will never stay off of the injury report for long. Niles Paul was already stealing snaps and targets from him, so you can probably drop Reed in redraft leagues.

  Redskins | No ACL injury for Trent Williams    Sun Nov 16, 07:18 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins OT Trent Williams (knee) suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Williams said Sunday, Nov. 16, that he was relieved there is no damage to his anterior cruciate ligament, but he is still concerned about a potential medial collateral ligament injury. 'You never know,' Williams said. 'MCL's, sometimes they make take two weeks. Sometimes they take six to eight weeks.'

Footballguys view: Washington is going to San Francisco next week, and the 49ers pass rush just got Aldon Smith back. This is bad news for Robert Griffin III and company, making everyone in the offense a shaky play for Week 12.
