From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Oct 27): Though Griffin was listed as questionable to play on Friday's injury report, Colt McCoy is going to be the starting quarterback for Washington on Monday Night Football (Griffin was limited in all practice sessions last week).

General News (Thu Oct 30): practiced fully on Thursday. Griffin received most of the work with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, Oct. 30, and will start in Week 9 if he does not have any setbacks, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said the team believes Griffin is 100 percent physically but want to make sure he is up to speed mentally.

General News (Wed Oct 29): 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 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." Griffin is expected to start in the team's game against the Vikings, according to league sources.

Week 9: at Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The big question this week is whether Robert Griffin III will get back in the saddle prior to Washington's Week 10 bye, or if the coaching staff lets Colt McCoy lead the charge at Minnesota this week. With a big 'W' under McCoy's belt on Monday Night Football (and a lost season for Washington at 3-5 in the NFC East at the half-way point), we expect to see McCoy appear again in Minnesota this weekend. He played a solid game in Dallas, posting 25/30 for 299 yards, zero TDs and one interception, with three sacks taken for -13 yards, and 7/16/1 rushing. The top Washington receivers were McCoy's main targets, with seven targets for 6/136/0 receiving for DeSean Jackson, four for 4/47/0 flowing to Pierre Garcon, and seven for 7/40/0 going to Jordan Reed. McCoy got the ball to the Washington playmakers. The Minnesota pass D is ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 212.1 net passing yards allowed per game, with 13 passing TDs given up vs. seven interceptions and 25 sacks generated (13th-ranked (tie) and tied for second in the NFL, respectively). Mike Glennon was sacked five times for -12 yards with one passing TD, one interception thrown. The Bills gave up six sacks of Kyle Orton for -28 yards, but he still posted 31/43 for 255 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown vs. the Vikings two games ago. This looks like a tough matchup for McCoy and company, on the road at Minnesota.

Redskins | 'Skins intent on starting Robert Griffin (Thu Oct 30, 04:50 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will start against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, barring any setbacks this week in practice, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden and the coaching staff are intent on Griffin starting, and Gruden said it would take Griffin re-injuring his ankle for him not to play. 'We have every intent of him starting,' Gruden said. 'Everybody's on board as far from a physical standpoint. Last week he was running around like a banchi. He's healthier than most of the guys we have playing. From a physical standpoint he's ready but for a young quarterback who missed this much time in a new system, the big thing is getting back from a mental standpoint.' Griffin increased his workload with the first team Thursday, Oct. 30.

Our View: It's not a great matchup for Washington. We're keeping Griffin on the fantasy bench if at all possible. Let's wait and see how he looks upon his return before trusting him as a fantasy starter.

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.

Our 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.
