10/20/2014 3:55:00 PM
Description: Redskins coach Jay Gruden would not rule out Robert Griffin III for Week 8, but said he had "a long way to go."
Insight: That's coach-speak for he's not going to play, but Mr Defensive Coordinator I'm hoping you will waste time in the one-in-a-million chance he does come back early.
 
10/16/2014 1:56:00 PM
Description: Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed Robert Griffin III got in another limited practice Thursday.
Insight: Griffin isn't coming back this week, but he might actually have a small chance for Week 8 (at DAL) or Week 9 (at MIN) instead of the current thought of timeline which is Week 11 after the team's bye.
 
10/15/2014 3:34:00 PM
Description: Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed Robert Griffin III will be the team's starting quarterback once he is cleared to play according to The Washington Post.
Insight: It is still, however, unclear when Griffin will be able to return. Gruden said it could be one week or five weeks. Washington has lost four straight games with Kirk Cousins under center, so even though he might be able to move the ball better than RGIII, the fact Cousins is not winning games makes this decision relatively easy for Gruden.
 
10/14/2014 11:44:00 AM
Description: Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is expected to begin individual drills this week and could begin practicing next week if he has no setbacks.
Insight: Griffin is not expected back until Week 11, they have a bye in Week 10, so Kirk Cousins should be available to start for three more games.
 
9/21/2014 11:10:00 AM
Description: The return for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is six to eight weeks according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Insight: Expect Griffin to be out until at least Week 10, at which point the team can decide wheather to return to Griffin or stick with Kirk Cousins. Unless you have an IR spot, it's not worth keeping Griffin in 10 and 12-team formats.
 
9/14/2014 4:46:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III left the field in the first quarter with his left ankle which has been diagnosed as a dislocated left ankle.
Insight: No timetable was given, but if surgery is needed he could be lost for most or all of the season. Kirk Cousins is a quality backup and hopefully fantasy owners had him handcuffed.
 
9/14/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III left the field in the first quarter with his left ankle in an aircast. He appeared in a lot of pain as he was being examined by the doctor
Insight: Kirk Cousins is a quality backup and hopefully fantasy owners had him handcuffed. RGIII will not return.

8/19/2014 10:08:00 AM
Description: Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III completed 6-of-9 passes for 112 yards and one interception against Cleveland on Monday night. He also rushed for 24 yards on four carries.
Insight: Griffin's best throw was a deep ball to Andre Roberts, which gained 49 yards. He had a bad interception when the Redskins were driving in the first quarter. On the play, pass rushers flushed Griffin from the pocket, and he failed to set his feet. The quarterback often improvised when pressured and even though head coach Jay Gruden did not draw up any designed runs for his quarterback, Griffin still had four carries. Fantasy owners should be excited about Griffin's upside but still concerned with the amount of hits Griffin is taking when carrying the ball. The Washington Post reports Griffin suffered a minor thigh bruise on Monday night.
 
8/10/2014 1:40:00 PM
Description: ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss says that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III "didn't look like the best quarterback on his own team" during Washington's joint practices with the New England Patriots this past week.
Insight: Reiss said that Kirk Cousins was better than Griffin in his mechanics, decision-making and running the offense. Griffin has top-five fantasy QB upside, but he's going ninth among quarterbacks in mock drafts because he comes with risks.
 
7/24/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Robert Griffin III may not be utilizing the "read-option" much this season as coach Jay Gruden has never been a fan of this offensive strategy.
Insight: Griffin will still use his feet to get outside on rollouts and should have the green light to take off whenever he needs to, but we're not expecting to see much "read-option" football in D.C. Fantasy owners will want to see this offense in action to determine what effect it will have on RGIII's value, but with his receiving weapons the QB should be a top-six fantasy quarterback in 2014.
 
6/4/2014 12:15:00 PM
Description: According to USA Today's Jim Corbett, Robert Griffin III "looks like a different quarterback" without his knee brace.
Insight: Griffin wasn't up to snuff last season but that's understandable after he rushed back from ACL surgery. Now that Griffin is finally healthy, he should be a top-ten quarterback. Washington receivers Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson will also benefit from Griffin's resurgence.

Description: New Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Robert Griffin III will be his starting quarterback next season. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football Talk
Insight: Gruden said "there will be no competition." With Griffin's job safe, it's possible that Washington will trade backup Kirk Cousins later this offseason. Cousins finished the 2013 season with 4 TD, 7 INT and a 58.3 quarteback rating in five games.
 
12/11/2013 3:57:00 PM
Description: An unnamed Redskins player told Jeff Darlington of NFL.com that the risk of re-injury was the explanation Mike Shanahan gave the team for Robert Griffin III's benching.
Insight: Griffin will sit the rest of the season in favor of Kirk Cousins so he can go into the offseason fully healthy. In 13 games, Griffin threw for 3,203 yards with 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions and rushed for 489 yards (zero rushing scores). He had 3,200 yards, 20 scores and five picks through the air and 815 yards with seven TDs on the ground over 15 games as a rookie before suffering a torn ACL in the postseason.

Insight: We expect a decision to be made on Wednesday. If Griffin is benched, the Redskins will turn to Kirk Cousins Sunday in Atlanta. Cousins has completed 12-of-25 passes for 107 yards and two interceptions in parts of two games this season.
 
Cold12/9/2013 5:40:00 PM
Description: According to NFL.com's Jeff Darlington, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is considering sitting Robert Griffin III so he doesn't get injured in the last three games.
Insight: Shanahan said he will make a decision Wednesday on his starter for Sunday's game against the Falcons. "If he did get injured, I’d be very disappointed if he wasn’t there in the offseason," Shanahan said. The Washington coach is also on the hot seat, as the Washington Post reported Monday the team is looking into firing him with cause and withholding the remaining money on his contract.

Description: Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III threw for 291 yards and an interception and rushed for 17 yards on six carries in Week 9 against the Chargers.

11/3/2013 12:03:00 PM
Description: Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III (knee) is active for Week 9 as expected..
Insight: Griffin left Sunday's game with an injury to his left knee, which is not the one he hurt last season, but it was a precautionary move. he could have a big game against the Chargers pass defense which is yielding almost 275 ypg through the air.

Description: Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III (knee) fully participated in Wednesday's practice.
Insight: Griffin left Sunday's game with an injury to his left knee, which is not the one he hurt last season, but it was a precautionary move. Prepare to have him in Week 9 against the Chargers.
 
10/28/2013 3:30:00 PM
Description: Washington coach Mike Shanahan said QB Robert Griffin III is fine and expects him to practice Wednesday as always.
Insight: Kirk Cousins finished Sunday's game against Denver after a ugly three and a half quarters from RGIII (15-of-30 for 132 yards 1 TD, 2 INTs).
