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. 


Redskins QB Colt McCoy medically cleared to play vs. Giants


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) After visiting a neck specialist, Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy was medically cleared to play Sunday against the Giants, a team source told ESPN on Friday. McCoy took all first-team reps during Friday's practice and was formally listed as questionable for the game prior to his visit. It remains to be seen if he'll be officially upgraded to probable leading up to the game.

McCoy was picked off twice and held to 199 passing yards against the Rams before leaving on the final drive of Week 14 with the injury. He has four touchdowns and three interceptions through four games played.


Redskins QB Colt McCoy takes all first-team reps Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said quarterback Colt McCoy received all first-team reps in Friday's practice and has been deemed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. Gruden indicated the only reason he was labeled questionable on the injury report is because McCoy has yet to visit a neck specialist, which he is scheduled to do so later on Friday, per the team's official website.

"We've just got to make sure he's OK, that he can withstand the punishment," Gruden said.


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. 


Redskins QB Colt McCoy struggles Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy had a rough game Week 14 against the Rams.

McCoy completed 20 of 32 passes for 199 yards. He did not throw any touchdowns, but did toss two interceptions. McCoy was under pressure all game, taking six sacks. He did manage to lead the team in rushing, gaining just 11 yards on the ground. Things got so bad that the fans started chanting for Robert Griffin III in the third quarter. They eventually got their wish, as McCoy was replaced on the last drive of the game. He left due to a neck injury.

If McCoy remains the starter, he'll take on the Giants Week 15. 


Colt McCoy shows he can play from behind


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2014) Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy indeed put up big numbers in his start in place of an injured Robert Griffin III Week 13 at Indianapolis. Of course, it wasn't until the Colts already had a commanding lead that he really started to play well.

After he threw for just 94 yards in the first half, his mobility became a major asset in what some would classify as a throw-every-down scenario, helping him elude the pass rush as he kept his sights downfield. He still took six sacks with the play calling somewhat telegraphed by the score, but he threw for 392 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions, completing 31 of 47 passes. It was the Redskins' best individual passing performance since Kirk Cousins threw for 427 yards and three touchdowns in Week 3.

Of course, McCoy has had chances to start in the past, particularly with the Browns, and has mostly failed with them, so there's a chance this performance was more a product of the Colts' big lead that McCoy's ability or knowledge of the offense. In two-quarterback leagues, he's worth a flier, but in one-quarterback leagues, given the depth at the position, you probably wouldn't want to pin your hopes to him with this one performance.


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 coach Jay Gruden: 'Clock is ticking' for Robert Griffin III


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that the "clock is ticking" for quarterback Robert Griffin III and that he has "auditioned long enough." Gruden also added that the team needs to "find a way to utilize him where we can get productive drives and stay away from negative plays and have some consistency."

"He's auditioned long enough," Gruden said. "Clock's ticking. He's gotta play. We'll see. ... We want Robert to excel, we really do. But the last two games, it hasn't been very good, anywhere. We gotta play better around him. And the biggest thing for us as play-callers, and for him, we just have to come together and jell with plays he's comfortable with. That takes time. But we don't have a lot of time."

Griffin is 32 starts into his Redskins career but has been plagued by injuries. This season alone, he has had 33 possessions, 14 of which resulted in punts and six which have resulted in turnovers. Only five of those drives have resulted in touchdowns.

"His biggest thing, he's been coddled for so long. It's not a negative, he's just been so good, he just hasn't had a lot of negative publicity," Gruden said. "Everybody's loved him. Some adversity is striking hard at him now, and how he reacts to that off the field, his mental state of mind, how it affects his confidence, hopefully it's not in a negative way. I read Drew Brees said after a couple interceptions, 'I'm never gonna lose confidence, I'm gonna come out firing all the time.'"

Over his last two starts, Griffin has completed 41 of 60 pass attempts (68.3 percent), compiling 458 yards along with two touchdowns and three interceptions.

"It's a production-based business. We haven't won many games lately with him," Gruden said. "We gotta figure out a way to get in the end zone. We just have to score. I don't care how we do it. If it's running the zone-read, I don't care. Quarterback sneaks, I don't give a damn. We gotta find a way to utilize him where we can get productive drives and stay away from negative plays and have some consistency."


Robert Griffin III not the answer to your QB issues


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's return from a dislocated ankle has left the team with more questions than answers about the future of their quarterback position, and Fantasy owners can't feel too great about what he has done so far either.

Griffin completed 23 of 32 passes in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, but finished the game with just 14 Fantasy points, thanks to a pair of interceptions to just one touchdown. He has just 30 combined Fantasy points over two games since returning from injury, and has yet to break off a huge rushing play to justify his subpar passing numbers.

Griffin is completing plenty of passes, but the lack of big plays has been alarming. On 100 pass attempts, he has just two touchdowns, to three interceptions, and has yet to find the end zone with his feet. Griffin needs to prove he can be a consistent contributor before you trust him with your starting quarterback spot down the stretch. 


RG3 has 'no doubt' he can be Redskins' franchise quarterback


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told reporters Tuesday he understood the message coach Jay Gruden sent Monday when he said "the jury is still out" on the third-year quarterback. Griffin added, however, his confidence remains high and he "no doubt" believes he can be the Redskins' franchise quarterback.

"I’ve only played two games and a quarter," Griffin said, per The Washington Post. "I think what he’s saying is, coming into this year, everybody had a clean slate. Everybody’s got to prove why they should be out there and have the opportunity to make plays. I haven’t been out there and availability is the key. My job is to continue to get better each week, help this team win football games, and the rest will take care of itself and so I don’t take that any kind of way negatively."

Griffin said he doesn't feel an increased pressure to make a statement about his future over the team's final seven games.

"I don’t. I understand that everybody has a criticism, but you have to prove yourself every day -- day in, day out in this league and life in general," he said. "So, I do take that mindset towards it, but when it comes to being that franchise guy, it is what it is. I believe that I am. I believe that this organization knows that I am. I know those guys in that locker room know that I am, and there’s no doubt there. So, I don’t ever step on the field trying to make a claim saying, ‘I am the guy.’ It’s not like that. This is my team, and I’m going to lead it."


Gruden: RG3 sore after return, but 'nothing to be concerned about'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday quarterback Robert Griffin III was a bit sore after Sunday's game against the Vikings, but added "nothing to be concerned about." Gruden said Griffin's ankle is fine. Griffin made his return to the lineup Sunday after missing six games due to a dislocated ankle.

Robert Griffin III one-dimensional in return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Redskins running back Robert Griffin III was solid in his return from a dislocated ankle in Week 9, but he didn't make a huge Fantasy impact in a 29-26 loss to the Vikings.

Griffin passed for 251 yards with one touchdown and one interception, decent enough numbers for someone whose passing has taken some heat over the last year. Unfortunately, the part of his game that is supposed to put him on another tier wasn't there Sunday, as he rushed for just 24 yards on seven attempts.

It shouldn't be terribly surprising that he was held in check on the ground, in his first game back from a pretty serious leg injury. His best chance to get back to Fantasy relevance is going to be with his legs, but we will need to see him unleashed before trusting him. With a bye in Week 10, hopefully he will be more daring with his running when the team returns to action in Week 11 against the Buccaneers. 


RG3 can't lead Redskins past Vikings in Week 9 return to lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III could not lead Washington to a win in his first game back from a dislocated ankle. Griffin, who missed six games, completed 18 of 28 passes for 251 yards and one touchdown and one interception, while rushing for 24 yards on seven carries in a 29-26 loss to the Vikings.

Griffin's only passing touchdown came on a 13-yard completion to DeSean Jackson midway through the third quarter, which gave Washington a 17-14 lead.

Griffin had a chance late in the fourth quarter to lead Washington to the tying or game-winning score, but he could only get Washington from its own 20-yard line to the 43-yard line before turning the ball over on downs with 1:05 left.

"Overall I think Robert came in and competed," coach Jay Gruden said. "I think he gave us a good chance to win."

The Redskins are on a bye Week 10 before returning to action Week 11 vs. Tampa Bay.


RG3 makes return to starting lineup Week 9


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) As expected, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III made his return to the starting lineup Week 9 at Minnesota. Griffin had missed the last six games due to a dislocated ankle. He was listed as probable for Week 9.

Wait and see with RG3's return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Fantasy owners who took a chance and stashed Robert Griffin III might see that move pay dividends down the road. But in his first game back from a dislocated ankle, it might be best to remain patient and see what he does Week 9 against the Vikings.

Griffin can undoubtedly be a solid Fantasy option when healthy, and Washington's offense badly needs the added dimension he can bring. However, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Redskins try to limit Griffin's running in his first game back, which severely diminishes his Fantasy potential.

Griffin might just show that he is past the injury and worth riding down the stretch, but it makes more sense to take a wait-and-see approach against a Vikings defense that is allowing the fourth-fewest Fantasy points in the league to opposing quarterbacks this season. Unless you are desperate, keep Griffin in reserve for at least one more week. 


Report: RG3 will start Sunday at Minnesota


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Sunday's game in Minnesota, sources within the organization told NBC4 in Washington. Griffin practiced fully Wednesday for the first time since dislocating his ankle Week 2, splitting first-team reps with Colt McCoy.

The team has not announced who will start at quarterback.


RG3, Colt McCoy split first-team reps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Redskins quarterbacks Robert Griffin III and Colt McCoy split first-team reps in Wednesday's practice, coach Jay Gruden told reporters. It was Griffin's first full practice since he dislocated his ankle Week 2.

It's unclear at this point who will start Sunday at Minnesota.


Robert Griffin III practices fully for first time


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III practiced fully Wednesday for the first time since dislocating his ankle Week 2, reports NFL Network. Whether Griffin plays Sunday at Minnesota is "all going to depend on how he does in practice tomorrow and Friday," coach Jay Gruden told reporters.

Griffin has missed six straight games. Colt McCoy would start if Griffin is not ready.


Jay Gruden: We won't rush RG3 back into action


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said quarterback Colt McCoy's strong play the past two games won't affect the timetable for Robert Griffin III's return. "No matter what happens," Gruden told the Washington Post, the Redskins won't rush Griffin back from his ankle injury.

Griffin is "very, very, very close," Gruden added, saying Griffin will be reevaluated by doctors after Wednesday's practice. Griffin has missed six straight games. Washington visits Minnesota on Sunday before getting a bye.


Colt McCoy not worth your time on waivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy looked competent in leading the team to a 20-17 overtime win over the Cowboys in Week 8, but that doesn't mean there is much here for Fantasy owners to look for.

McCoy, a 59.9 percent passer for his career,  completed 25 of 30 passes Monday, giving him an 85.7 completion percentage over parts of two games with the Redskins. That is great, but certainly not sustainable for a player who has completed 59.9 percent of his passes in his career. McCoy has effectively managed the game plan, but there is little reason to think he can be a long-term starter for Washington.

In fact, the 16 Fantasy points he managed in Week 8 might be the high point of his season, with Robert Griffin III's impending return. McCoy is one of the most-viewed players in CBSSports.com leagues as of Tuesday afternoon, but there isn't much upside in actually adding him at this point. 


Colt McCoy highly accurate in first start since 2011


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Making his first start in three years, Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy completed 25 of 30 throws (83.3 percent) for 299 yards and rushed for a touchdown in Monday's overtime win at Dallas. McCoy made one terrible decision, getting picked off on a first-quarter throw to the end zone, but otherwise looked in command.

McCoy opened overtime by hitting Pierre Garcon for 23 yards across the middle. He then found tight end Jordan Reed twice to get Washington in field-goal range. On the second, McCoy scrambled and lofted a touch pass along the sideline for 16 yards.

McCoy underthrew deep threat DeSean Jackson twice on potential touchdowns, but connected with him six times for 136 yards, including 49- and 45-yard gains.

McCoy gave the Redskins a short-lived lead with a 7-yard scoring run early in the fourth quarter. He ran seven times for 16 yards.

It's unclear if McCoy will make a second straight start Week 9 at Minnesota, as Robert Griffin III is nearing a return from his ankle injury.

Report: Colt McCoy to start Monday with RG3 not ready to return


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is not expected to play Monday against the Cowboys, missing a sixth straight game due to a dislocated ankle, according to NFL Network. As expected, Colt McCoy will draw the start Week 8 after he replaced Kirk Cousins during a comeback win Week 7 against the Titans.

Redskins QB situation unchanged, Colt McCoy still Week 8 starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Thursday nothing has changed with the status of the quarterback situation. He said Robert Griffin III (ankle) is progressing and was limited in practice again Thursday, but Colt McCoy remains as of now the starter for Week 8 against the Cowboys.

"Robert hasn't changed. Not a whole lot to say. Not going to announce if he's active or not until Monday night," Gruden said, per The Washington Post.

Gruden reiterated Griffin will slide back into the starter's role once he is healthy. Griffin has missed the last five games.

"When Robert's healthy, he'll be the starter. We just don't know when that will be," Gruden said.


Robert Griffin III not cleared yet, not ruled out for MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said quarterback Robert Griffin III "looked good" in the team drills he participated in Wednesday, but that Griffin has not yet been medically cleared to play, reports NFL Network. Gruden said Griffin has not been ruled out for Monday's game at Dallas.

The coach added that how Griffin recovers from Wednesday's workout, and how he looks Thursday, will be significant. Griffin is coming back from a dislocated ankle. If he is not cleared for the game, Colt McCoy will start.


Report: RG3 takes first snap in drills Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Robert Griffin III was the first Redskins quarterback to take a snap in individual drills Wednesday, ahead of Colt McCoy and Kirk Cousins, reports NFL.com. However, McCoy still is expected to start Sunday at Dallas.

Griffin is coming back from a dislocated ankle. Coach Jay Gruden has said Griffin won't play until he's fully healthy.
