Redskins' Jay Gruden: We'll go into 2015 with Robert Griffin as 'No. 1 guy'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said during Wednesday's combine presser that he anticipates Robert Griffin III being the starting quarterback heading into the 2015 season, per the team's official website.

"Robert ended the season as the starter and we anticipate that going forward," Gruden said. "We'll go into the season with Robert as our No. 1 guy."

The Redskins finished last in the NFC East in 2014 with a 4-12 record. Griffin, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, went 2-5 in seven starts this season and missed several weeks due to an ankle injury. He played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions. He is 14-21 in three seasons with Washington.


Redskins leave RG3 off of letter to season-ticket owners


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Either it was a simple mistake or an indication of how the Redskins truly feel about quarterback Robert Griffin III.

In a letter sent to season-ticket holders, the Redskins thanks fans for their support while mentioning the core group of players that are poised to lead the organization back into the winning column. One notable name was left off.

"Head Coach Jay Gruden, new General Manager Scot McCloughan, and Defensive Coordinator Joe Barry will lead a nucleus of Ryan Kerrigan, DeSean Jackson, plus Pro Bowlers Trent Williams and Alfred Morris. The Redskins are poised to rebound next season!" the letter read, via The Washington Post.

Griffin, the Redskins' No. 2 overall pick in 2012, was not included in this group.

Griffin enjoyed phenomenal success as a rookie, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five touchdowns while running for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. Following an ACL tear during the 2012 postseason, Griffin hasn't been the same. After returning from a dislocated ankle this past season, Griffin was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.

Griffin played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.


RG3: 'I could've sat out the rest of last year' after hurting ankle


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) During a radio interview Wednesday night, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III indicated the dislocated ankle he suffered in Week 2 against the Jaguars hindered him the rest of the season. He missed six games due to the injury.

“I had never suffered an ankle injury of that severity before, so I didn’t really know what to expect,” Griffin said, per The Washington Times. “It just became more and more tough the more games that we lost, because you know how hard your guys work, and you want to get out there and help them win games.

“I could’ve sat out the rest of last year, with how bad the ankle was, but I felt like I could play, and I wanted to get out there and play with my guys and help them win games. And that didn’t happen when I got back out there. Then coach made a decision [to bench me]. That was an unfortunate decision, and something we all had to go with because that was coach’s choice.”

Griffin will be entering the final guaranteed year of his contract in 2015. The Redskins have until May 3 to decide if they want to exercise the fifth-year option on his contract for 2016. 

Griffin added his focus this offseason will simply be on getting healthy.

“Last year, I wasn’t healthy, and it sucked,” Griffin told ESPN 980. “There’s no other way to say it other than that. When you dislocate your ankle in the second week of the season, when you and your team had big things in mind. So I guess it’s just getting healthy, getting a mental break, getting a chance to spend time with family, and then formulate my plan going forward from this year so we can go out there and win games.”


RG3 on Deflategate: 'I didn't know the ball had to be a certain weight'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015)
As Deflategate pushes into Day 11 on Thursday, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is the latest in the long list of current or former professional football players to weigh in on underinflated footballs being used in the AFC Champhionship Game. Although, his take on the issue might be a first.

“I didn't even know that the ball had to be a certain weight,” Griffin told Chris Russell in an interview on ESPN 980 on Wednesday night, per CSNWashington.com. “I know they pump up the balls and they get inspected before every game. But I wasn't aware that the ball had to be at a certain limit, or higher, which is interesting. I think it’s very interesting.”

While Griffin said he was unaware of the rules, he added he does pay attention to how he can grip the football before each game. If the football doesn't meet Griffin's standards, he said he tosses it aside.

“I think it could be something that we look at going into the future about how much we pump up the ball,” Griffin said. “But at the same time, for me, going this far in my career, all we worry about is, can we grip the ball? Not how much air is in it.

“I just think it's really funny,” Griffin added with a chuckle, “especially when you don't specify that you're talking about footballs. …I think I said balls seven times already.”


Kirk Cousins would like to be traded, if RG3 named starting QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins said he would like to be traded if Robert Griffin III is named the starting quarterback for 2015, according to NBCWashington.com.

Cousins said there is no point to remaining with the team, if there is no quarterback competition. Cousins will be in the final year of his rookie contract in 2015.

"Isn't it obvious I couldn't stay here," Cousins said about wanting a trade, if RG3 is named the starter.

Cousins went 1-4 in five starts in 2014 and is 2-7 in nine career starts. He has thrown more interceptions (19) than passing touchdowns (18) in 14 career games. He also has a 59 percent career completion rate.


RG3 wants to be back with Redskins in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said he wants to return to Washington in 2015. However, Griffin -- who has one year left on his rookie contract -- said he has not had any discussions with coach Jay Gruden about his status for next season.

"We haven’t had that discussion or cleared the air on any of that kind of stuff," Griffin said, per ESPN. "My focus is, I want to be here. I want to help this team win, try to turn this thing around and change the culture around here. That’s my only focus. If coach Jay and this organization wants me around, then I’ll be here I’ll be ready to go. I’ll make sure that happens."

The Redskins finished last in the NFC East in 2014 with a 4-12 record. Griffin went 2-5 in seven starts this season and missed several weeks due to an ankle injury. He is 14-21 in three seasons with Washington. He was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.


Redskins' Robert Griffin III ends season on low note


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III continued his miserable season during a 44-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday.

Griffin struggled throughout the game, completing 27 of 41 pass attempts for 336 yards and two interceptions. His main highlight came in the first quarter when he connected with DeSean Jackson on a 69-yard touchdown pass. Griffin also scored on a 2-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter and finished with 19 rushing yards on six attempts.

He finished the season with six interceptions and only four touchdown passes. Griffin did not throw multiple touchdown passes in any game this season.


Redskins release final injury report for Week 17 against the Cowboys


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher has missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Hatcher has missed Washington's last two games with a knee injury.

Trent Williams (shoulder), Chris Baker (toe/elbow), Gabe Miller (ankle), Keenan Robinson (knee) and Stephen Bowen (ankle/illness) are all listed as questionable for the game. 

Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Bashaud Breeland (thigh), Barry Coefield (shoulder), Tom Compton (knee), Will Compton (shoulder), Jackson Jeffcoat (calf), Kory Lichtensteiger (stinger) and Darrel Young (ankle) are all considered probable.

The Redskins are currently 5 1/2-point underdogs at home against the Cowboys. 


Robert Griffin III dealing with 'mildly sprained shoulder'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2014) 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
(12/20/2014) 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
(12/15/2014) 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
(12/14/2014) 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
(12/14/2014) 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."


Redskins' Robert Griffin III: 'My confidence is still sky high'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said Wednesday that his confidence remains "sky high" despite being benched in favor of Colt McCoy and serving as a backup over the last two weeks, CSNWashington.com reports.

"Your confidence can’t be shaken by anything that happens in your career," Griffin said after Wednesday’s practice. "So, for me, my confidence is still sky high."

McCoy was limited in practice Wednesday after suffering a neck strain in Week 14. Coach Jay Gruden has yet to name a starter for Week 15.

"Whatever Coach decides as far as the quarterback position, what we’re going to do going forward, that’s up to him," Griffin said. "I’m just here to help this team win."

The Redskins enter Sunday's matchup with the Giants on a five-game losing streak and with a 3-10 record on the season.


Redskins' Jay Gruden not ready to name starting QB for Week 15


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday he is not ready to name his starting quarterback between Colt McCoy and Robert Griffin III

"I know you guys are contacting all your sources available, but you guys are not gonna know this week," Gruden said Wednesday. 

McCoy, who sufferd a neck strain in Week 14, was limited in practice Wednesday. Gruden said McCoy "has a chance" to start. 


Robert Griffin III is Redskins' contingency plan 'for now'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said if quarterback Colt McCoy (neck) can't play Week 15 at the Giants, Robert Griffin III would start, reports the Washington Post. But Gruden added RG3 is the contingency plan "for now" and that Kirk Cousins also would get consideration.

"It's hard to say right now," Gruden said, per the paper. "I don't know how healthy [McCoy] is. I'm not going to make any assumptions or conclusions until I get all the tests back from the doctor."

McCoy left Sunday's shutout loss with a neck injury and was replaced by Griffin. Gruden hopes Griffin will be more decisive if he gets another chance.

"Hopefully he's taken a step back and taken everything in and just continuing to learn the position and learning about the concepts that we run, and hopefully he'll have more of a confident air about him when he jumps back in there, and there's less indecision is what we're hoping for," Gruden said.

"That he is decisive and will just pull the trigger and make plays," Gruden added. "We've just got to get him to relax and play and have some fun and lead a team, if he's the guy to do it."

McCoy had a stiff neck Monday morning and had to turn his whole body to look left or right, the paper said. McCoy replaced Griffin as the starter two weeks ago after Griffin was ineffective in three straight games.


Redskins' Robert Griffin III won't lobby for starting job in Week 15


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said after Sunday's loss to the Rams he will not make a push for the starting job this week. 

“If he decides to put me in, I’m ready to go, but I am not going to undermine anybody else or be that player because that’s not who I am,” Griffin said.

Griffin was forced into action late in the 4th quarter after starter Colt McCoy suffered a neck strain. Griffin was 3 of 4 for 33 yards in his one drive. 

The Redskins will head to New York in Week 15 to face the Giants. 


Robert Griffin III makes an appearance for Redskins


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III made an appearance late against the Rams.

Griffin came on in relief of Coly McCoy, who had an awful start and left with a neck issue. Griffin got just one drive, but was able to complete three of his four attempts. He gained 33 yards. Griffin did take a sack on one of his two other dropbacks, losing 8 yards. 

It's unclear if Griffin will return to the starting lineup Week 15. If he does, he would take on the Giants. 


Report: 'Real chance' Robert Griffin starts again in Washington


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) There's a "real chance" Robert Griffin III starts at quarterback for Washington before the end of the season, according to ESPN.

Griffin has been in the news quite a bit lately. After being benched for the Colts game, there have been reports that Griffin's tenure in Washington has come to an end. That may no longer be the case. It's not known how Griffin would get his starting role back at this time.

Griffin has had quite the roller coaster of a season. After opening the season as the starter, he injured his ankle Week 2. Griffen then proceeded to miss the next six games, but was able to return to action against the Vikings. After a three week stint as the starter, he was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.


Report: Jay Gruden done with Robert Griffin III


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Washington coach Jay Gruden is done with quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to The Washington Post.

It's not just Griffin's on-field play that he frustrated the coach, it's also his off the field decisions. Gruden believes Griffin is more interested in increasing his personal brand than he is in learning how to be a better player, according to the report. 

Griffin has had a tough season. After being injured Week 2, he attempted to return from an ankle injury and hasn't performed to his usual standard. Griffin was replaced by Colt McCoy last week, and seems to be a long shot to get the job back this season.


Report: RG3 likely won't be back with Redskins next season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) After being benched in favor of quarterback Colt McCoy, it is highly unlikely Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will return to the team next season, people within the organization told Washington Post columnist Jason Reid.

Reid wrote first-year Redskins coach Jay Gruden was able to convince owner Daniel Snyder and team president/general manager Bruce Allen change was necessary. Snyder and Allen believed Griffin could return to his rookie form from 2012, when he went 9-6 as a starter and led Washington to a playoff berth. The duo hired Gruden to help get Griffin's career back on track, but in recent weeks they started to see the same shortcomings Gruden had notice since the preseason, teams officials told Reid.

Griffin is 13-20 with 7,272 passing yards and 1,404 rushing yards in 33 career games. He has 38 passing touchdowns, seven rushing touchdowns and 20 interceptions.


Gruden: Colt McCoy to start Week 13, RG3 will be backup QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed in a conference call with Colts reporters Wednesday quarterback Robert Griffin III has been benched in favor of Colt McCoy for Sunday's game at Indianapolis. Gruden added Griffin will be the backup quarterback Week 13. 

"Colt (McCoy) is going to start this week at quarterback. I felt like he deserved a bit of a promotion," Gruden said.

McCoy will be facing a Colts defense yielding 249.4 passing yards per game. Indianapolis has also allowed 18 passing touchdowns, while recording nine interceptions and 28 sacks in 11 games.


Report: Redskins benching RG3 for Colt McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Redskins are planning to start Colt McCoy over Robert Griffin III at quarterback Sunday at Indianapolis, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. The move is expected to become official Wednesday when coach Jay Gruden meets with reporters, Schefter said.

Gruden informed the team Wednesday morning about the change at quarterback, according to Schefter.

McCoy went 2-0 while Griffin recovered from his dislocated ankle. Griffin threw for 106 yards, took five sacks and lost a fumble on his team's last offensive play Week 12 at San Francisco.

Over the last three games, all losses, Griffin has thrown for 564 yards and two touchdowns with three interceptions. He's holding the ball too long and not throwing with authority when he does let it fly.

Although Griffin is not part of Sunday's game plan, he remains "a significant part of the Redskins' long-term plan," Schefter said.


Report: Redskins' RG3 not starting Week 13 after all?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) According to Diana Russini of NBC 4 in Washington, Redskins coach Jay Gruden and the rest of the offensive coaching staff will meet with all of their quarterbacks Tuesday night to determine who will start Sunday against the Colts. Gruden told reporters the previous day that he has "every intent" to start Robert Griffin III at quarterback in Week 13.

During Washington's three-game losing skid, Griffin has compiled 564 passing yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions while registering a 79.3 passer rating and completing 65.8 percent of his passes.

If Griffin gets benched, the team will turn to Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy for Sunday.


Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Despite struggling since coming back from a dislocated ankle, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Sunday at Indianapolis.

Gruden is not pleased with the offense’s lack of production and said the entire offense will be evaluated to find areas of improvement.

The Redskins have scored a total of 20 points over the last two games and Griffin has yet to throw multiple touchdown passes in a game this season.
