Injury Colt McCoy to draw Week 8 start     -- Mon Oct 20 6:55 pm --

Assuming Robert Griffin III (foot) is unable to return
Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he's not going to rule out a return this week by quarterback Robert Griffin III. But Gruden also made it clear that Griffin still must show a lot in practice before the team declares him ready to start. If he doesn't start, then Gruden said Colt McCoy would do so against Dallas for the teams' Oct. 27 matchup. Griffin has not played since dislocating his left ankle in Week 2. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Griffin's initial optimistic timetable was 8-10 weeks, so a six-week return is highly unlikely. McCoy went 11-for-12 in relief of Kirk Cousins after he was benched at the start of the second half of Washington's Week 7 win over Tennessee. McCoy will likely start against Dallas (Week 8) and Minnesota (Week 9) before the Redskins' bye, possibly allowing RG3 to return in Week 11 versus Tampa Bay.
Injury Griffin III will start when he returns     -- Wed Oct 15 6:30 pm --

Cousins is winless in four starts
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III returned to the practice field Wednesday and participated in individual drills for the first time since suffering a dislocated left ankle Sept. 14. Coach Jay Gruden said Griffin will once again be the team’s starter upon his return, whenever that might be. In the portion of practice open to the media, the third-year quarterback stretched with the team and threw passes to wide receivers alongside the team’s other quarterbacks. Griffin’s accuracy varied but the ankle did not appear to limit his movement. (Washington Times)

FF Today's Take: Kirk Cousins flashed some fantasy potential initially but costly turnovers have contributed to the team's four-game losing streak. RG3 is at least another week away and remains a wild card to help fantasy owners when he returns.
Injury Jordan Reed ‘shooting for Sunday’     -- Wed Oct 8 5:40 pm --

Hamstring
As the Washington Redskins left the practice field on Wednesday, tight end Jordan Reed lingered a couple of minutes longer to run some extra routes and catch passes from quarterback Kirk Cousins. The Redskins again classified Reed as limited following Wednesday’s session because he didn’t handle a full workload. But the second-year tight end expressed optimism, however, over the progress he has made and also said he hopes to play on Sunday if he doesn’t suffer any setbacks. (Washington Post)

FF Today's Take: The Redskins were banking on big things from Jordan Reed this season so it is good news to see him practicing even if only on a limited basis. Even if he suits up this weekend he may be on a snap count.
Injury RG3 will wear cast for 10 days     -- Wed Sep 17 4:30 pm --

To be re-evaluated after cast is removed
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will wear the cast on his dislocated left ankle for roughly 10 days and then will have it re-evaluated, with the hope of then proceeding to around a month and a half of rehabilitation, Coach Jay Gruden said. (Washington Post)

FF Today's Take: Based on Jay Gruden's suggestions, the Redskins will be without Robert Griffin III for at least eight weeks in the best possible scenario. That would put his return at week 11 following the team's bye week. Kirk Cousins should be picked up in all formats as the clear starter for the next two months and possibly longer if he excels in Griffin III's absence.
Injury RG3 out indefinitely with dislocated ankle     -- Mon Sep 15 4:00 pm --

Team believes he will return at some point in 2014
Robert Griffin III will have a cast put on his dislocated ankle but it remains unclear how long the quarterback will be sidelined, coach Jay Gruden said Monday. “We’ll know in a few more weeks how long he’ll be out,” Gruden said. Gruden said Griffin did not suffer any fractures or ligament damage and he would not be put on season-ending injured reserve, but the coach did not offer any timetable for a potential return. He said he does believe Griffin will be back this season. Kirk Cousins, who entered after Griffin left the game, will take over as the starting quarterback. (Washington Times)

FF Today's Take: Griffin and the team hopes he can make it back in 4-5 weeks, but that seems overly optimistic at this point. Furthermore, the team may be tempted to stretch it if Cousins can continue to perform well in the interim. It would be a surprise if Griffin can make it back before midseason, so owners in leagues with short benches may be forced to release him. Cousins should be a more-than-adequate replacement while he is recovering.
