Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs JAX (2 / 3 / 38 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 22 / 0 rush)

Robert Griffin III looked like he was ready to put his underwhelming regular season debut behind him before exiting the game midway through the first quarter with a gruesome ankle injury. Griffin started off the game with good rhythm on his throws and more juice in his legs, executing a nice bootleg to the right side for 12 yards before sliding between four Jaguars defenders on his first play of the game. He followed the run up with a bomb to Desean Jackson deep down the left sideline on a beautiful bucket throw between two Jaguars defenders, but Jackson had the ball jarred loose as he fell to the ground. Griffin looked comfortable taking the ball from center and pump faking to his right before unleashing the throw to the streaking receiver. Griffin wasn't perfect to start the game. He took a bad sack on 3rd and 9 that killed Washington's first drive, showing that his slow-to-develop pocket awareness is still an issue. On the sack, Griffin had pressure collapsing the pocket around him, but stood like a statue as DE Ryan Davis turned the corner around T Tyler Polumbus and buried him for a nine yard loss. Griffin injured his ankle on a play action bootleg where he rolled to the right sideline waiting for Desean Jackson to break free. Griffin left his feet on a leaping completion up the field, but appeared to at the very least dislocate his left ankle as he hopped out of reach of a pursuing Jaguars defender.

Redskins | RGIII accepting of backup role? (Thu Sep 25, 09:01 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could return as the team's backup If QB Kirk Cousins plays well in the coming weeks, and according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, the team believes that Griffin is a 'team guy' and would accept a backup role.

Our View: He's a 'team guy' who is going to get his starting job back without question so long as Kirk Cousins continues to struggle.

Redskins | Coach does not rule out QB switch (Tue Sep 23, 02:48 PM) - Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden did not rule out QB Kirk Cousins permanently replacing QB Robert Griffin III at quarterback. 'Crazy things have happened in NFL,' Gruden said. 'I'm not going to discount anything'

Our View: Fantasy owners holding onto RG3 may be left holding the bag. Cousins has played well replacing Griffin, and he's arguably a better fit for the Jay Gruden offense.
