by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Even if McCoy is able to play Week 16 against the Eagles, coach Jay Gruden still might turn to Robert Griffin III.

"We've got to look at film and see where we stand," Gruden said about his quarterback situation. "Robert's definitely in the mix. He came out here and competed, which I like."

Report: Redskins believe Colt McCoy's injured neck is not serious


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy injured his neck during Week 14’s loss to the Rams, but sources have indicated the Redskins do not believe the injury will be a long-term issue, reports the NFL Network.

Tests revealed McCoy suffered no structural damage to his neck, reports The Washington Post. However, the Redskins still want to see how the injury progresses before making a decision on his playing status.

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 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. 


Redskins' Colt McCoy leaves Week 14 with neck strain


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy left Week 14 against the Rams with a neck strain and his return is questionable. Robert Griffin III came in to replace McCoy. 

McCoy went 20 for 32 for 199 yards in the game. 


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.


Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy plays well in Week 13 loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Making his second start of the season, Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy threw three touchdowns in a 49-27 loss to the Colts Week 13.

McCoy completed 31 of his 47 pass attempts for 392 yards and did not throw an interception. It was McCoy’s first 300 yard passing game since 2011 and second of his career. McCoy’s three touchdown passes were to Roy Helu, Logan Paulsen and DeSean Jackson. 

The Redskins face the Rams Week 14.


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.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
