News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Oct 20): Reports on Monday indicated that Griffin may practice as early as Wednesday, October 22. With Kirk Cousins benched for turnovers and Colt McCoy named the stater until Griffin returns, the team will want Griffin back in action as soon as it is safe for him to play. The team is not ruling him out for Week 8 yet but acknowledges he has long ways to go. From coach Jay Gruden: "I can't rule him out. But he's still got a long way to go. ... He's got to be 100 percent."
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Griffin probably won't start this week on Monday night against the Cowboys, but he'll be back soon either way. His running ability and quality set of targets give him a high weekly ceiling once he's on the field, even if his floor is always very low because of the looming specter of injuries.

Latest NewsRedskins | 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.” Our 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.
link to story 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. Our 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.
link to story 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. Our View: No matter who starts, the Cowboys defense is looking like a good pickup for a home Monday night game.
link to story Redskins | Week 7 Inactives (Sun Oct 19, 11:28 AM) - The Washington Redskins have declared WR Aldrick Robinson, DL Clifton Geathers, OT Morgan Moses, LB Perry Riley, QB Robert Griffin III, OG Spencer Long, CB Tracy Porter inactive for Week 7. Our 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 | Friday injury report (Fri Oct 17, 03:14 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle), LB Akeem Jordan (knee) and CB Tracy Porter (hamstring) have been ruled out for Week 7. LB Perry Riley (knee), CB David Amerson (concussion) and FS Ryan Clark (ankle) are listed as questionable, while LB Brian Orakpo (ankle), SS Trenton Robinson (ankle), OT Trent Williams (knee) and FB Darrel Young (hamstring) are listed as probable. Jordan and Porter did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 17. Griffin, Perry and Clark were limited during practice, while the other players fully participated in practice. link to story More News
