Robert Griffin III dealing with 'mildly sprained shoulder'
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(12/24/14) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a "mildly sprained [throwing] shoulder" when he was sacked by Fletcher Cox in the Week 16 win over the Eagles, coach Jay Gruden told the Washington Post. Griffin was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Gruden said Griffin did some throwing Wednesday and should be fine with rest and treatment, but a final determination will be made Friday. Kirk Cousins would start Sunday if Griffin is unable to play.
Washington is a 6.5-point home underdog to the playoff-bound Cowboys.
Redskins' Robert Griffin does just enough to secure win over Eagles
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/20/14) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III did not find the end zone, but was able to manage a 27-24 home victory over the Eagles in Week 16.
Griffin was picked off by Nate Allen in the fourth quarter on a pass intended for DeSean Jackson for his only blemish of the night. He completed 16 of 23 passes for 220 yards, registering an 81.8 passer rating. He was sacked twice and also rushed for 11 yards on five carries.
Griffin has combined for 456 yards with one touchdown and one interception through his last two starts. He'll look to end the season on a high note Week 17 against the Cowboys.
Redskins' Gruden: Plan is to start RG3 over McCoy vs. Eagles
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/15/14) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday the plan is for Robert Griffin III to start at quarterback Saturday against the Eagles.
Griffin replaced Colt McCoy in Sunday's game against the Giants after McCoy aggravated a neck injury on the opening drive. Gruden said McCoy will continue to be monitored by doctors during the week.
Gruden added the team will try to build the offense around Griffin's strengths. He said it's important for the run game to be effective in order for Griffin to be productive.
"It's important for our offense to rally around him, and to play well around him, also," Gruden said. "Moving forward, this is Robert's team right now."
Robert Griffin III impresses off the bench
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(12/14/14) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III put together a solid effort in Week 15, as he came off the bench in place of an injured Colt McCoy.
Griffin, who was benched for poor performance three weeks ago, put together arguably his best performance of the season Sunday. He completed 18 of 27 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for 46 yards to finish the game with 19 Fantasy points.
McCoy's injury doesn't seem too serious, but it is possible Griffin remains in the starting lineup moving forward anyways. The Eagles come up on the schedule in Week 16, and Griffin would be just a desperation play at this point in the season.
RG3 throws for 236 yards as he replaces injured Colt McCoy
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/14/14) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III fared admirably off the bench in place of quarterback Colt McCoy, who aggravated a neck injury on the first drive Sunday against the Giants. Unfortunately, the Redskins still lost, 24-13, Week 15.
Griffin completed 18 of 27 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for 46 yards on five carries. Sadly, Griffin was under pressure all afternoon. He was sacked seven times and fumbled three times.
While Griffin wasn't credited with any lost fumbles, he did have an 8-yard touchdown run on the final play of the first half overturned because it was ruled he was fumbling the football as he went into the end zone.
Griffin's lone touchdown pass was a 9-yarder to running back Chris Thompson in the second quarter, which put Washington ahead 10-7.
The Redskins are back in action Week 16 vs. Philadelphia.
"We've got to look at film and see where we stand," coach Jay Gruden said about his quarterback situation. "Robert's definitely in the mix. He came out here and competed, which I like."
|Robert Griffin III is ready for a rebound year, and we expect him to bounce back in a big way. Griffin was miserable in 2013 in his attempt to come back from a tough knee injury in the 2012 playoffs. He passed for 3,203 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on 60 percent completions, and he ran 86 times for 489 yards and no touchdowns before being benched for the final three games. Compare that to his rookie year when he had 3,200 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions on 66 percent completions and 120 carries for 815 yards and seven touchdowns, and you can see the drop-off. Griffin was hindered last year by a knee brace and limited offseason work, but the brace is gone and Griffin has been working out all offseason. He also got two new weapons in DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts, and along with Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed, Griffin's receiving corps could be dominant. We like Griffin as a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback coming into the year. He's worth drafting with a mid-round pick, and he could provide big rewards, especially if he's comfortable running again. There's obvious injury risk with Griffin, but quarterback is deep with plenty of No. 2 quarterbacks to pair him with. He could easily rebound as a Top 10 or even Top 5 Fantasy quarterback this year, and we're excited for his outlook.
