  Redskins | Robert Griffin expected to start    Wed Oct 29, 05:31 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is expected to start in the team's Week 9 game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to league sources.

Footballguys view: Colt McCoy beat the Cowboys on Monday Night Football in Week 8, but he goes back to the bench. Griffin will be an interesting start against a Vikings defense which only allows about 212 passing yards per game. The Vikings are also second in the NFL with 25 sacks as a team in 2014.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin could play in Week 9    Wed Oct 29, 04:11 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could play against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 29, and split first-team repetitions with QB Colt McCoy. Gruden said Griffin's situation is now more mental than physical. 'We'll see it's all going to depend on how he does in tomorrow and Friday,' Gruden said. 'And moving forward, how I feel he's coming back. From a physical standpoint he looks good, now it's a matter of mental and getting back into the football part of it. If he looks good in that regard then there's a chance he could play and if not and he needs another week, he'll take another week.'

  Redskins | Robert Griffin very close to return    Tue Oct 28, 05:39 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is 'very, very, very close' to returning to game action, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'Physically I think he'll be ready to go. Doctors are feeling pretty good about it, they still want to feel around this week until we make the final determination. I just want to make sure he feels good in the pocket,'

Footballguys view: Ride the hot hand of Colt McCoy! Washington wants to be very cautious with their franchise QB, so Griffin will get all the time he needs to properly heal. Gruden said they don't want to rush Griffin back too soon, so the evaluation of him could last another week.

Washington Redskins Robert Griffin III (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Footballguys view: There's a good chance that Washington stays another week with Colt McCoy to get RG3 totally healthy. We'd avoid the Washington situation until Griffin is back....and even then, we want to see what he looks like upon his return before starting him in fantasy.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin says he won't rush    Fri Oct 24, 02:46 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) said he won't rush back to play until his ankle is fully healed. 'It's our job to help this team win, and I've been there for Kirk (Cousins) and Colt (McCoy) as much as I possibly can, and being there for this team to make sure they're as ready as possible during this process. And it sucks that I can't get out there and play with them and help them get wins, but I've been listening to the doctors, listening to the trainers, listening to the coaches and we're not going to rush my ankle,' Griffin said. The team is leaving open the possibility that Griffin will play Monday, Oct. 27, against the Dallas Cowboys.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin III back in Week 11?    Thu Oct 23, 09:38 PM

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return in Week 11, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'I would think -- I would guarantee Tampa, most likely, unless something happens between now and then,' Gruden said Tuesday, Oct. 23. 'You've got a good bye week, you've got a couple weeks to make sure it's ready. Obviously Robert is a quick healer. He works extremely hard in the training room. So the process could be sped up a little bit depending on how he feels.'

Footballguys view: Griffin won't be back for this week or next, making Colt McCoy a rosterable player in leagues where every starting QB is kept and has value such as QB flex and 2 QB leagues.

  Redskins | Colt McCoy to start Week 8    Thu Oct 23, 05:22 PM

Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy will start Week 8, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: We'll have to wait just a little while longer for Robert Griffin III to return. With McCoy starting on Monday night against the Cowboys, it downgrades the projections for all Washington skill position players.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin unlikely to play    Thu Oct 23, 04:19 PM

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unlikely to be ready to play Monday, Oct. 27, against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said that Griffin has looked great in practices the last two weeks, but cited the fact that he's rusty and hasn't had meaningful repetitions in six weeks as a factor. "First it starts with the doctors telling me he's full-go, as far as being able to take a hit and all that good stuff," Gruden said. "And then it's gonna be getting more reps, and then I've got to see him comfortable throwing the timing routes, the out routes on time with no hitch, and all the reads and all the progressions. He's going to have to get more and more reps.'

Footballguys view: As much as Washington needs RG3 back, they cannot afford to rush him and have him hurt himself again. Colt McCoy will get the start. Did you feel that? It's like someone walked over your grave. That chill running up your spine is all you need to tell you to stay away from McCoy this week as he is no better than a QB3.

  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.

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 | 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

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.
