  Redskins | Doctors to decide Robert Griffin's status    Wed Oct 22, 01:28 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's (ankle) status for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be determined by team doctors, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'It's up to the trainers and doctors right now, they gotta clear him, No. 1, like I said,' Gruden added. 'No. 2, he's got to feel good. But it's gonna be a process of how he feels tomorrow, how he feels the next day, and how he's throwing and how he's playing the position.'

Footballguys view: Griffin took part in individual drills in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and took repetitions in the team portion. Gruden said Griffin looked good doing the drills.

  Redskins | Jay Gruden wants to name QB soon    Wed Oct 22, 12:52 PM

Washington Redskins QBs Robert Griffin III (ankle) and Colt McCoy hopefully will find out the starting quarterback for Week 8 by Thursday, Oct. 23, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Gruden said Griffin will either start or be inactive for the game. We'd love to see Griffin's return this week (especially in a big game against the Cowboys), but we feel McCoy is going to get the start. Griffin will be back soon enough, but planning on him to return this week might be too optimistic.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III increases load    Wed Oct 22, 10:38 AM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will increase his workload in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: We'll see how Griffin responds with this increase in his workload. There's a chance that he starts the game on Monday night against the Cowboys. We think it's an outside shot, so prepare for Colt McCoy to be under center for Washington in Week 8.

  Redskins | Not ruling out Robert Griffin    Tue Oct 21, 02:06 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be ruled out for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, but he has a long way to go in order to be ready, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said Griffin must be 100 percent in order to play.

Footballguys view: Griffin would be a huge upgrade over Colt McCoy, but the team needs to be cautious here. We're not ruling it out...but we would be shocked to see Griffin play on Monday Night Football against the Cowboys in Week 8.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy to start?    Mon Oct 20, 03:12 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy would start this week if QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unable to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: He could start, and the team is giving him starter's reps this week. Griffin will be monitored closely, and McCoy will start if it's determined that Griffin isn't quite ready yet.

  Redskins | Brian Orakpo to have surgery    Mon Oct 20, 03:04 PM

  Redskins | Brian Orakpo has torn pectoral    Mon Oct 20, 01:13 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins LB Brian Orakpo (pectoral) will miss the rest of the season because of a torn right pectoral muscle.

Footballguys view: This is not an old story...this is Orakpo's third torn pectoral muscle of his career. Orakpo was playing on a one-year franchise tag with Washington, and he'll hit free agency coming off yet another injury.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin to be tested Wednesday    Mon Oct 20, 12:39 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to be put through a rigorous workout Wednesday, Oct. 22, that will give team officials a better idea of where he's at in his recovery. Griffin has already joined practices for stretching, warm-ups, individual drills and limited handoffs with the scout team. Head coach Jay Gruden has said he'd like to have Griffin log at least two weeks of practice before returning to a starting role. QB Colt McCoy appears to have the inside track to start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if it's between he and QB Kirk Cousins. "It's a good sign the way Colt finished the game, ran the offense," Gruden said, alluding to his poise and efficiency in engineering the game-winning touchdown drive on the last possession, which started with 3 minutes and 14 seconds remaining. "Very smart and very efficient. Did some good things."

Footballguys view: The Cousins time is almost over (if not already) in Washington. Gruden said in his press conference on Monday that Colt McCoy would actually get starter reps this week after replacing Cousins in Week 7. We'll see if Griffin can get back to practice and perform at an acceptable level so he can start on Monday Night Football in Week 8.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin could start in Week 8    Mon Oct 20, 12:04 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if he looks really good in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, according to a team source. The team would ideally like to hold him out another week in order to prepare.

Footballguys view: If we don't see Griffin this upcoming week, then Colt McCoy will likely receive the starting nod for the first time since December of 2011 when he was with the Cleveland Browns. McCoy threw a touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon on his first throw after replacing Kirk Cousins, but we're not excited about his prospects against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 8.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris leaves briefly    Sun Oct 19, 09:03 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ankle) left the Week 7 game against the Tennessee Titans briefly due to a left ankle injury, but he was able to return and finish the game. Morris carried 18 times for 54 yards, and he did not have a reception.

Footballguys view: Morris has struggled to get on track, in part due to inconsisten quarterback play and a defense that doesn't give him winning game scripts. It's not crazy to bench Morris next week if you have better options.

  Redskins | QB decision coming this week    Sun Oct 19, 09:02 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans. After the game, head coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, Oct. 19, that a decision on the starting quarterback for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be made during the week. It's uncertain if QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is an option.

Footballguys view: No matter who starts, the Cowboys defense is looking like a good pickup for a home Monday night game.

Footballguys view: Griffin could come back next week, but if he can't play in Week 8, chances are that Washington will hold him out through their Week 10 bye and he'll return in Week 11.

  Redskins | Alfred Morris's production down    Fri Oct 17, 04:22 PM

Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris is 10th in the league with 386 rushing yards (3.98 yards per carry), but he entered the season averaging 4.73 yards per carry. In his defense, the Redskins have faced good run defenses that often have five defenders on the line. Washington's offensive line has also had problems communicating when a defense disguises their looks. Morris averaged 1.95 yards after contact in his first two years, but he's averaging 1.71 yards after contact this year, which ranks him 21st in the NFL. This is where the zone read had helped him in the past; He averaged 4.98 yards per carry on the zone read on 97 carries while at 4.7 yards on his other 514 carries. And finally, the blocking of the offensive line has been subpar, and they have struggled to get off double teams and reach the linebackers. Also, the tight ends and receivers are forced to block much more in an outside zone game.

  Redskins | Will look to target Pierre Garcon more    Fri Oct 17, 09:47 AM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon needs more touches, according to head coach Jay Gruden. He has eight catches in the last three games. Garcon has just one catch out of six third-down targets this season.

Footballguys view: Garcon seems to be blending into a pecking order for targets with four viable options, including Andre Roberts, and the newly healthy Jordan Reed. Garcon could get back to startable numbers on a consistent basis, but anything approaching his massive 2013 stats seems like a remote possibility now.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin to return to starting job    Wed Oct 15, 04:28 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) 'looked fine' and had 'a little bounce in to his step' in on-field drills Wednesday, Oct. 15, and head coach Jay Gruden said Griffin will return to his starting quarterback job when doctors have cleared him to return to action. 'He looks good so far. He's making good progress as we knew he would, the type of worker he is. But making progress in the training room and making progress in the practice field are two entirely different things. We have to make sure he gets right both mentally and physically before he gets back on the field,' Gruden said.

Footballguys view: This is the best move for Washington. Kirk Cousins has not been consistent, and the team needs to turn back to their franchise quarterback. Fantasy owners need to note that Griffin could be back in a couple of weeks.

  Redskins | Pierre Garcon backs Kirk Cousins    Wed Oct 15, 01:11 PM

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said the team has plenty of confidence in QB Kirk Cousins despite the team's four-game losing streak in which Cousins has struggled mightily at times. "He's just taking in a lot of stuff right now, but once he gets through this, honestly, he'll be good to go,' said Garcon. Cousins has 18 touchdowns, 18 interceptions and five fumbles in 13 career games. Cousins is expected to start in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will throw to receivers during practice Wednesday, Oct. 15, but is not close to being ready to play in a game, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: There was some speculation that RG3 could get back to action in Week 8. That was always overly optimistic. He's coming back in the near future, but Griffin might still be a couple of weeks away. The clock for Kirk Cousins is ticking down.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not in danger of being benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy after the team lost their fourth straight game in Week 6, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Cousins now leads the league with eight interceptions, with seven of them coming in the last three games.

Footballguys view: It's Colt McCoy man, Washington doesn't really have a choice but to start Cousins...and cross their fingers for Robert Griffin III to come back quickly. RG3 is getting closer, but might still be a few weeks away.

Footballguys view: The Kirk Cousins clock is ticking. Griffin is close to returning to the starting job. Cousins has moxie, but he makes a lot of mistakes and he's not a consistent starter the team can rely on. It's almost time to scoop up Griffin on the waiver wire if he's out there in your league.
