Robert Griffin III to get cast off in 10 days


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who dislocated his left ankle Week 2 against the Jaguars, will wear a cast for 10 days, then get reevaluated, coach Jay Gruden said. "We'll look at it from there and it will be a rehab process -- probably four to six weeks, somewhere in there," he said.

Redskins are expecting RG3 back this season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden told reporters Monday quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a dislocated, and not broken, left ankle Sunday against the Jaguars. Gruden said he doesn't have a timeline for Griffin's return, but he will not be placed on season-ending injured reserve because the team feels he could return this season.

Griffin will wear a cast on his left foot and the team should know in a few weeks when Griffin might be able to return to action.


RG3 not expected to need surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said Monday an MRI showed no fracture in his injured ankle, according to ESPN. He still doesn't have a timetable for his return, but he isn't expected to have surgery.

Griffin was upbeat Monday and said it was "positive news" regarding his status.


Redskins hope RG3 will miss only 4-5 weeks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Redskins' "current hope" is that quarterback Robert Griffin III, who dislocated his ankle Sunday, will miss only 4-5 weeks, reports Pro Football Talk. An MRI to be conducted Monday will provide further information.

Robert Griffin III diagnosed with dislocated ankle


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a dislocated ankle Sunday, the team announced.

Griffin injured the ankle while making a throw in the first quarter, and had to be carted off the field. At this point, the team is unsure of how long he is expected to miss, though tests scheduled for Monday will likely reveal more.

If Griffin requires surgery on the ankle, it could be a season-ending injury, though that is yet to be determined. 


Robert Griffin III ruled out with ankle injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars shortly after suffering an ankle injury. He went down in the first quarter following a pass, and had to be carted to the locker room.

The extent of the injury beyond Sunday is not yet known.


Robert Griffin III replaced with apparent ankle injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III landed awkwardly while making a running throw in Sunday's game against the Jaguars and had to be replaced by Kirk Cousins in the first quarter.

Griffin appeared to injure his left leg during a 19-yard reception to DeSean Jackson, which came at the end of a scramble to the sideline. He was not hit while making the throw, and it is not clear exactly what the nature of the injury is. He had to be carted to the locker room with a brace on his leg, and the team announced he suffered an ankle injury. 

Griffin had completed 2 of 3 passes for 38 yards, with the lone incompletion coming on a long drop by Jackson. He added two scrambles for 22 yard. 


Redskins working on 'home-run' passing game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday the team needs to do a better job of getting the football to wide receivers Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson with more space to make plays, according to The Washington Post. On Wednesday, quarterback Robert Griffin III agreed.

"When you have weapons like Pierre and DeSean and Andre Roberts, these guys can really go deep down the field. You want to get them opportunities and we had a couple in (Week 1). We just didn’t come down with them," Griffin said. "Yeah, we have got to find ways to open those guys up more down the field. Don’t think that’s any secret. You want to be able to be efficient and hit the underneath stuff, but you also have to get those home-run shots in every now and then. We’ll work on getting that."


Robert Griffin has high completion rate in Week 1 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III completed 78.3 percent of his passes in Sunday's season opener against the Texans. Unfortunately, he led just one scoring drive, as Washington lost 17-6.

Griffin completed 15 of 17 passes in the first half, but he had just 74 yards. He had nearly 200 passing yards in the second half, but he led Washington to zero points after halftime.

Griffin completed 29 of 37 passes for 267 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. He also totaled 2 rushing yards on three carries and lost a fumble Sunday.

The Redskins head home for a Week 2 showdown against the Jaguars.


Robert Griffin focused on executing the game plan Week 1


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) After a shaky preseason, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III gets his first chance to erase those memories during Sunday's season opener at Houston. Griffin completed 13 of 20 passes for 141 yards and two interceptions in the preseason.

"Just execute the game plan, man," Griffin said in response to the task heading into Week 1, per The Washington Post. "We’ve come in the last couple of days, putting together a game plan. Coaches have been working hard on that and they expect us to go execute it. That’s our job. That’s my job to make sure we go out, put points on the board and be ready for anything they throw at us."

Griffin will face a Texans defense that allowed quarterbacks to average 19 Fantasy points per week last season. Over the last 11 games, quarterbacks totaled 21 touchdowns to five interceptions. Though, Sunday's game could have a different feel defensively as the Texans will be playing their first regular-season game under head coach Bill O'Brien.

The Redskins will also be playing their first game under a rookie head coach Sunday and many Fantasy owners are excited to see how Griffin develops under Jay Gruden, who was the offensive coordinator for the Bengals last season. Griffin is more of a low-end starter in deep formats for Week 1, but the upside is there if he can get back to the level he played at as a rookie in 2012 and settles into Gruden's offense.


Robert Griffin III might play in preseason finale


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he thinks it would be "beneficial in some ways" for quarterback Robert Griffin III to play Thursday against the Buccaneers, but Gruden won't decide until Tuesday. Griffin is enduring a shaky preseason and has been outplayed by backup Kirk Cousins.

Jay Gruden, Robert Griffin III insist there's progress


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Despite Robert Griffin III's preseason struggles, Redskins coach Jay Gruden told ESPN.com the third-year quarterback "is further along than it appears he is. Based on his production [Saturday], a lot of people would say he’s not further along.

"He’s a lot further along than he gets credit for. All you have to look at is practice and game tape, and it wasn’t very good from anybody. But I’ve seen him practice, and I’ve seen him come a long way. [Saturday] didn’t show how much he’s come forward."

Griffin went 5 of 8 for 20 yards with an interception against the Ravens, posting a 27.1 passer rating.

Griffin said "there will be overreactions all over the place. It's our job to make sure we stay cool, calm and collected and keep fighting on."

The struggles continue for Robert Griffin Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Washington quarterback Robert Griffin continued his struggles Saturday night against the Ravens in Baltimore.

Griffin was intercepted by Terrence Brooks on his first pass attempt before a defensive pass interference call wiped out the play. A few plays later he was sacked by Brooks. On the ensuing drive, he mishandled a snap and recovered his own fumble.

Griffin was intercepted by C.J. Mosley on his first pass attempt after halftime, ending a rough night. He completed 5 of 8 passes for 20 yards, with no touchdowns, one interception and three sacks. He registered a 27.1 passer rating.

Robert Griffin III knows he must improve at avoiding hits


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who rushed four times for 24 yards Monday night, acknowledged he must do a better job of avoiding hits at the end of his runs. On one play, he got hit twice near Cleveland's sideline.

"I got caught in an awkward situation on the first one and I tried to slide. It was a bad attempt at a slide," Griffin told USA Today. "And then on the sideline, on their sideline, I was just in a situation there where I thought I was going to be able to get out of bounds, and (a defender) was running out of bounds with (tight end) Jordan Reed, and he came back in, so I had to protect myself, so that's why I put my shoulder down. And then my third attempt was very successful. I got down and got out of harm's way."

While Griffin said his thigh bruise is "nothing to worry about," he said he has to improve the way he slides at the end of plays.

"It's going to continually be a work in progress," he told the paper. "I'm going to keep focusing on getting down in those situations, knowing when to fight for the extra yards and when not to," he said. "So the fans have nothing to worry about there. I'll keep getting better at that, I promise you that."

Coach Jay Gruden said it's an issue "we have to continue to talk to him about — how important he is to this team and this franchise. When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself. He's had a habit in his career of being able to get himself out of those predicaments with his speed and his athleticism. But here it's a 16-game season, with the great talent across the league in the NFL, (and) he's got to pick his shots and learn how to get down a little bit better."


Robert Griffin III suffers minor thigh bruise Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a minor thigh contusion in Monday's 24-23 win over the Browns, but head coach Jay Gruden said that he'll be fine, the Washington Post reports.

Griffin posted solid all-around numbers but took a number of hits in the game as he fought to extra yardage. The one time he was seen limping on the field was after a quarterback slide. The injury shouldn't affect his status for the next preseason game.


Robert Griffin III throws for 112 yards on nine passes Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III went 6 for 9 with 112 passing yards while gaining 24 yards on four carries in Monday's preseason game against the Browns.

Griffin had the Redskins moving on the team's first drive, but the offense turned the ball over on a pitch that running back Alfred Morris couldn't handle. Griffin moved the ball with ease again on his second drive, at one point gaining 18 yards on a scramble, before throwing an interception in Cleveland territory. He received one more drive and took the ball all the way down to the one before the offense couldn't convert on fourth down at the goal line.

Griffin did a solid job in his first extended action of the preseason, though he was seen limping slightly at one point after a slide. He's aiming for a bounceback campaign in his second season back from surgery to repair his ACL and LCL.


Robert Griffin III shows improvement


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) After a disheartening performance in practice Sunday, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III made quicker and better decisions Monday, especially in the two-minute drill, reports ESPN.com.

"It was a lot smoother," Griffin said. "We felt in rhythm, getting to the right places with the ball, everybody being in the right place, making the right checks at the line. That's what camp is about. We will have days where it seems up and down. Today was a day we were climbing a lot. It takes repetition. It takes guys being on their stuff."

Offensive coordinator Sean McVay said Griffin's decision-making is improving daily. "Any time you get experience feeling the rush, feeling the soft spots, keeping your eyes downfield, remaining a passer and also knowing when my internal clock goes off ... it's [helpful]."


Redskins dispel notion of quarterback controversy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) With reports circulating that Kirk Cousins has been outplaying Robert Griffin III in training camp, Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay sought to dispel any notion of a quarterback controversy. "Robert is our starting quarterback," McVay emphatically told reporters.

Report: Kirk Cousins outperforming Robert Griffin III


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) The Redskins' Robert Griffin III "didn't look like the best quarterback on his own team" in joint practices with the Patriots last week, reports ESPN.com. Kirk Cousins played better than Griffin "from the perpsective of running the offense, fine-tuned mechanics and how decisively the ball came out of his hand," the report said.

That sentiment was echoed by several people in the Patriots' organization, the report added.


Robert Griffin III leads scoring drive


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III led his team to a field goal on the opening drive against New England before taking a seat for the rest of the game. Griffin handed off five times to Alfred Morris and completed 2 of 4 passes for 9 yards, including a 7-yard dumpoff to running back Roy Helu.

Griffin's lone downfield throw went to Aldrick Robinson in the end zone. Robinson hauled in the 16-yard pass but his hand touched out of bounds before he could get his second foot in.


Gruden: Robert Griffin III won't run as much


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden told NFL Network Thursday morning that quarterback Robert Griffin III won't have as many designed runs as he had in his first two years in the league, but that he does have the green light to scramble when necessary. 

"As far as him running in the pocket, quarterbacks make those decisions, not me," Gruden explained. "On game day, it's hard for me to tell them, 'Stay in the pocket -- don't scramble!' But we'll have some designed plays where we get him outside, let him use his legs, obviously it would be stupid not to."

Gruden did add that RG3 has made "some serious strides" this spring in knowing when to throw and when to bail out of a pass play and run. 


Robert Griffin III getting some extra help


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/7/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will work with quarterbacks coach Terry Shea next week, reports ESPN. Griffin worked with Shea earlier this offseason for a week, but wanted another tune-up before training camp begins July 24.

The last time Shea worked with Griffin they focused on Griffin's fundamentals, including narrowing his base, getting his feet to turn with his body in the pocket and raising where Griffin held the ball -- at times last year he held it too low, leading to a wind-up throw.


Robert Griffin III excited for chance to change calls


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/2/2014) One of the new benefits of working with Redskins head coach Jay Gruden that Robert Griffin III didn't have with Mike Shanahan is the ability to change calls at the line of scrimmage. The Washington Post did a nice job showing examples of what RG3 couldn't do last season but the Bengals, Gruden's old team, did do. 

The end result should be Griffin being comfortable behind center and able to adjust on the fly to what he sees on the field. 

"If you're going to give me more opportunities and allow me to control the offense more, that's all a quarterback can ever ask for," Griffin said. "So, I'm excited for the opportunity to do everything, and I think Jay is going to allow me to do that. That's no pressure. That's what you want."

It remains to be seen if Griffin can clearly decipher defensive blitzes before and after the snap and adjust accordingly, but having the chance to make changes should cut down on the number of sacks he takes. Griffin has been taken down 76 times since entering the NFL. 


McVay: Robert Griffin III doing 'an excellent job'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay said he is "really excited" to see quarterback Robert Griffin III back on the field, reports the team's official website.

"I think going into his third year, you see a lot of progression both from a physical and a mental standpoint," McVay said. "Some of the things that we've done with him the past two years are similar and some are also different. He's done an excellent job of transferring his knowledge in the meeting rooms to on the field recognizing some of those looks and audibles and recognizing things at the line of scrimmage. We will give him the chance to have great success this year."


RG3: 'We will have definite mismatches'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said he can't wait to start working with an offensive cast that includes running back Alfred Morris, receivers DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts, and tight end Jordan Reed.

"I'm eager to see how we mesh together," Griffin told ESPN.com. "That's exciting for a quarterback. We can work matchups. We will have definite mismatches and then it will be good to distribute the ball around."

Griffin is excited about the variety of routes his receivers can run.

"All those guys can run," Griffin said. "None of them are limited to routes. It's not a limited route tree, which is exciting for a quarterback and exciting for an offensive coordinator calling plays. Now you know I can put these guys in any position and they can all run the routes."
