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.


Accuracy is Colt McCoy's calling card


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy, who reportedly will start Week 13 at Indianapolis over Robert Griffin III, has been incredibly accurate in the two games he's played this season. McCoy replaced Kirk Cousins in Week 7 against Tennessee and completed 11 of 12 throws for 128 yards and a touchdown.

After leading that winning fourth-quarter drive, McCoy started Week 8 at Dallas and was just as good, hitting 25 of 30 throws for 299 yards with an interception and rushing for 16 yards. Washington won 20-17 in overtime. McCoy has completed 85.7 percent of his throws so far.

Now he faces a Colts defense holding quarterbacks to an 88.5 passer rating, 13th-lowest in the NFL.


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.


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.

Robert Griffin questionable on final Redskins Week 8 injury report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (ankle) is listed as questionable on the team's final Week 8 injury report for Monday's matchup with the Cowboys.

Griffin hasn't played since Week 2 while recovering from a dislocated ankle, but he was able to get three limited practices under his belt this week. Even with the questionable tag, Colt McCoy is expected to start Monday night.

Cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) is also listed as questionable after being limited in practice all week. Safety Ryan Clark (ankle, shoulder) was limited in practice all week as well but is listed as probable. The team's other probables include running back Alfred Morris (ankle), defensive lineman Chris Baker (thigh), linebacker Perry Riley (knee) and offensive tackles Trent Williams (knee) and Tyler Polumbus (knee), all of whom practiced in full Saturday.


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.


Report: 'No chance' RG3 plays Monday night


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) There is "no chance" Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will return from his ankle injury to play Monday night's game at Dallas, reports NBC4 in Washington, citing multiple sources. The station said Colt McCoy will start, with Kirk Cousins backing him up.

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.


Redskins QB Colt McCoy on track to start MNF vs. Cowboys


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy is expected to earn the starter reps this week, coach Jay Gruden told reporters on Monday, per ESPN. McCoy came off the bench for Kirk Cousins in the second half to lead his team to a 19-17 comeback victory over the Titans in Week 7. Barring a "big turnaround" from Robert Griffin's recovery from an ankle injury, McCoy will be the starter Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Colt McCoy no Kirk Cousins in Fantasy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) You can understand the Redskins' switch from Kirk Cousins to Colt McCoy at halftime Week 7 against Tennessee. Cousins had already committed two turnovers in the contest after throwing seven interceptions in his previous three games. But in Fantasy, he was still a viable contributor, throwing for multiple scores in four of five games prior to his Week 7 departure.

You shouldn't expect that sort of production from McCoy, who has hardly played since failing to impress as the starting quarterback for the Browns, a team still in search of a long-term answer at the position, in 2011. Though he led the Redskins back from a 10-6 deficit and had an impressive final line, completing 11 of 12 passes for 128 yards, understand that 70 of those yards came on his lone touchdown pass, a simple curl route that Pierre Garcon turned into a big gain.

In other words, the play belonged to Garcon, not McCoy. If not for a nifty move after catching the ball and then outrunning the defense, it would have been just a short gain. Which was kind of the norm for McCoy. How do you complete 91.7 percent of your passes? You make it so none go for more than 10 yards. And apart from that one to Garcon, none did.

McCoy averaged 5.9 yards per attempt during that 2011 season and has yet to prove he can stretch the field. Cousins certainly has. From a Fantasy perspective, you'd like to see the Redskins go back to Cousins Week 8 at Dallas because you can't count on anything from McCoy.


Colt McCoy comes off bench after halftime to lead Redskins to win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy came off the bench in the second half Sunday to lead Washington to a 19-17 comeback win against the Titans. 

Trailing 10-6 at halftime, the Redskins made the choice to replace Kirk Cousins with McCoy at the outset of the second half. Coach Jay Gruden immediately looked like a genius as McCoy's first pass went for a 70-yard touchdown to Pierre Garcon to put Washington ahead 13-10.

McCoy then led a 10-play, 76-yard drive at the end of the game to set up Kai Forbath's 22-yard, game-winning field goal as time expired. McCoy completed 11 of 12 passes for 128 yards, while rushing for 3 yards on two carries.

"You hope that you don't have to go to No. 3, but if you do, you hope you go to a guy like Colt, who's a pro," Gruden said after the win.

Gruden also said he hasn't made a decision on who will start at quarterback in Week 8 against the Cowboys. Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to return to practice this week and could be in play to return next week.


Redskins bench Kirk Cousins in second half Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins was benched at the beginning of the second half Week 7 vs. Tennessee in favor of Colt McCoy. Cousins was pulled with Washington trailing 10-6.

Cousins completed 10 of 16 passes in the first half, but he passed for just 139 yards, no touchdowns and one interception. Cousins watched from the sidelines as McCoy completed his first pass of the game -- a 70-yard touchdown to Pierre Garcon.


Redskins not considering turning to QB Colt McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins leads the NFL with eight interceptions, with seven coming in the last three games. Coach Jay Gruden told the Washington Post he is not considering turning to third-stringer Colt McCoy.

Washington has dropped four straight entering Week 7 against the Titans.

Colt McCoy utilized Sunday


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) The San Francisco 49ers called upon quarterback Colt McCoy during the Week 8 blowout win over Jacksonville from London Sunday. Colin Kaepernick left with a comfortable lead. 

McCoy finished the game 1 for 1 for 13 yards before taking a knee. San Francisco has a bye Week 9 and Kaepernick will be back in the saddle for Week 10 vs. Carolina. 


49ers get several minor contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2013) The 49ers got several minor offensive contributions in their win over Houston. Wideout Kyle Williams ran 13 yards on an end-around, and fullback Bruce Miller caught a 4-yard pass.

Backup quarterback Colt McCoy took three kneeldowns to salt away the victory. Wideout Jon Baldwin started and was targeted twice but did not make a catch.
