News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): McCoy should start at Dallas on Monday night assuming Robert Griffin III isn't ready, but he's only worth picking up in leagues where every starting QB is rostered and more than one can start for a fantasy team.
General News (Tue Oct 21): would start this week if Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unable to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "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."

2014 Week 7 vs TEN (11 / 12 / 128 / 1 / 0 pass, 2 / 3 / 0 rush)
Colt McCoy stepped in as the new starter for the Redskins to start the second half and made an instant impact connecting with Pierre Garcon for a 70 yard touchdown. McCoy took a short drop and stared Garcon down on the play before hitting him on quick hitch. Garcon then turned on the jets upfield and squeaked past a racing Michael Griffin who took a horrible angle attempting to push him out of bounds. McCoy's 10 other completions netted 58 yards as he dinked and dunked his way to eke out a come from behind victory against one of the league's worst teams. McCoy played an extremely safe game, rarely throwing far beyond the LOS and completing 11/12 passes along the way. He did target Jackson twice down the field with game on the line, but one play was nullified by penalty and the other drew a defensive PI call that helped set up the game winning FG.With RG3 supposedly practicing this upcoming week, McCoy may not get another chance behind center this season.
Latest NewsRedskins | 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. Our 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.
link to story 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.” 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.
