Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 1/10/15 12:55am ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III likely will be given another chance to succeed, because teams should not give up on young quarterbacks, according to general manager Scot McCloughan. McCoughlan said Griffin needs to be surrounded by a strong running attack and a more reliable offensive line.
Huddle Up: RGIII finished with 1,694 yards, four TD passes and 176 rushing yards in seven games this season and deserves another shot -- hopefully with better health and a healthier supporting cast. Washington simply paid too high of a price to move up and select Griffin in the 2012 draft to cast him aside after what basically amounts to two full seasons.
Kirk Cousins - QBPosted 12/30/14 1:45am ET
Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said it would be tough to return to the team in 2015 if QB Robert Griffin III was given the starting job. Cousins said he would talk to the front office.
Huddle Up: Cousins shone briefly after taking over for RG3 earlier this year, but then appeared to be exposed once teams got some film on him. Still, he may warrant a starting shot elsewhere as he no longer wants to be a part of the Jay Gruden/RG3 circus in Washington.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/30/14 2:13am ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and the rest of the team's quarterbacks will be evaluated methodically during the offseason before a decision on a starter for the 2015 season is made, head coach Jay Gruden said Monday, Dec. 29.
Huddle Up: With Kirk Cousins already harping about not returning if he's not the starter, Gruden has some decisions to make. Should be an interesting offseason in DC.
Santana Moss - WRPosted 12/30/14 1:23pm ET
Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss, who does not have a contract for 2015, wants to continue playing and would prefer to stick with the Redskins.
Huddle Up: Moss, who will turn 36 in June, had only 10 receptions for 116 yards this past season and is certainly a longshot to return to D.C.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/26/14 7:01pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 26, and is listed as probable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Yeah, RGIII will make a third straight start, but he projects as nothing more than a low-end QB2 against the Cowboys.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/24/14 6:30pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (shoulder) is likely to play in Week 17 against the Dallas Cowboys despite dealing with a sprained right shoulder, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24. 'He can throw the ball, it's just a little sore,' Gruden said. 'We just want to make sure he doesn't aggravate it more, give him another couple days of rest and be ready to go Friday.'
Huddle Up: Definitely check back later in the week if you're planning on using the seemingly always questionable RGIII.
Jordan Reed - TEPosted 12/17/14 5:00pm ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (personal) received a personal day off to attend the birth of a child Wednesday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: No worries for those Reed owners who saw that the oft-injured TE wasn't on the practice field Wednesday.
Roy Helu - RBPosted 12/16/14 12:48am ET
Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) has a chance to play in Week 16. Helu was not able to play in Week 15 because of the toe injury.
Huddle Up: Helu, who has caught 38 passes for 436 yards and was on pace to set a career high in receptions, has actually missed the last two games and his return could send Chris Thompson and Silas Redd back to the bench.
Jay Gruden - HCPosted 12/16/14 10:43am ET
Although the Washington Redskins haven't confirmed the news, sources have said coach Jay Gruden will be retained as coach for the 2015 season.
Huddle Up: Even Dan Snyder wouldn't pull the plug that quickly... would he?
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/16/14 3:55pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) was placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Dec. 16, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Tough way to end things for McCoy, Meanwhile, it looks like RGIII will get that season-ending audition after all.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/15/14 1:32pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III was 18-for-27 for 236 yards and a touchdown in the team's loss to the New York Giants in Week 15, and head coach Jay Gruden is unsure if Griffin will start again in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Gruden wants to watch film and learn more about QB Colt McCoy's (neck) injury. '(Griffin) is obviously in the mix,' Gruden said. 'He came out here and competed, which I liked. Made some good throws and made some great plays with his legs, but from a consistent standpoint, the production on third downs and the lack of production in the second half (offensively) was concerning. I'll have to check the film to give him a total grade.' McCoy headed for the locker room after the first series of the game.
Huddle Up: Washington faces a porous Eagles pass defense this week but McCoy and Griffin would be nothing more than a desperation start for Fantasy Super Bowls.
Robert Griffin III - QBPosted 12/15/14 3:57pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is expected to be the starting quarterback for Week 16, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Griffin plays an Eagles defense that has given up career games to Kirk Cousins, Austin Davis and Zach Mettenberger this season. He's a desperation play if you need him but hopefully owners that made it to their Fantasy Championship Games won't need to rely on RG3.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/14/14 12:04am ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) is 50-50 to play in Week 15, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Jackson will be a game-time decision against the Giants. If he plays, Jackson is a WR3 for fantasy playoffs.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/12/14 2:32pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) practiced in full and took all the first-team repetitions Friday, Dec. 12, but he's listed as questionable for Week 15 against the New York Giants. McCoy must first be cleared by a specialist before playing in Week 15.
Huddle Up: It's looking very much like McCoy will start Sunday in N.Y., but definitely double-check to make sure he gets final medical clearance.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/12/14 2:50pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) is listed as questionable for Week 15 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Jackson, coming off a missed Week 14 start, has been limited most of the week, but he has ordered custom-made cleats for this week so, hey, that's one positive sign. Jackson owners, though, are advised to check the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury and Weather report Sunday morning to get confirmation on his status.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/11/14 2:44pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) said he did more in practice Thursday, Dec. 11, but he is not where he wants to be yet.
Huddle Up: Jackson is progressing, and what he can do -- or can't do -- Friday will likely determine if he'll play Sunday against the Giants or miss a second straight game.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/11/14 4:13pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) will start in Week 15 if he's cleared to play by the doctors, according to head coach Jay Gruden. McCoy was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 11 for the second straight day. QB Robert Griffin III likely would start if McCoy is not able to play.
Huddle Up: Reading between the lines, it sounds like McCoy has convinced the coaches he's well enough to start, and all that's needed is a medical green light. We should gain some clarity Friday.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/10/14 2:01pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) said he is making good progress in his rehab from a neck injury. He was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10 said the injury does not affect his throwing motion and that he can't make the injury worse if he plays.
Huddle Up: Washington's starting QB decision for Sunday remains up in the air, and we'll see what the rest of the practice week reveals.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/10/14 6:20pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 10 and is 50-50 to play in Week 15 against the New York Giants, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Jackson has a decent chance of playing this week after sitting out in Week 14, but let's see what he's able to do Thursday and Friday.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/9/14 12:27am ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's (leg) status for Week 15 is uncertain at this point, but the team hopes he will be able to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: It will be a week of monitoring injury reports for Jackson owners after the WR missed his first game of the season.
Roy Helu - RBPosted 12/9/14 7:57pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) will miss at least Week 15 against the New York Giants with turf toe, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Helu will visit with a foot specialist, and he could have to sit out for the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Stay tuned if you've been using Helu in a deep league, and pick up Silas Redd if you're truly out of RB options.
Roy Helu - RBPosted 12/8/14 10:34am ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) had x-rays on his toe after the Week 14 game against the St. Louis Rams. Helu said Sunday, Dec. 7, that the x-rays did not reveal anything 'acute,' but he will still have an MRI Monday, Dec. 8, just to be sure.
Huddle Up: Not good news for the Redskins' pass-catching back, though fantasy owners of Alfred Morris could benefit if Helu is out and Morris stays on the field for more third downs.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/8/14 3:59pm ET
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III would start if QB Colt McCoy (neck) is unable to play. McCoy suffered a neck strain in Week 14.
Huddle Up: McCoy is still getting evaluated but if he can't play against the Giants on Sunday Griffin will be back under center. RG3 is no more than a lower-end QB2 at this point though.
Roy Helu - RBPosted 12/8/14 8:36pm ET
Washington Redskins RB Roy Helu (toe) will probably miss this week with a toe injury, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: If Helu misses a second straight game, expect to see more of Silas Redd spelling Alfred Morris. Redd had one carry for 8 yards and three catches for 36 yards in Week 14.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 12/7/14 10:22pm ET
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy (neck) left the Week 14 game against the St. Louis Rams in the fourth quarter due to a neck injury. He was taken to an offsite medical facility for further tests, a team official said Sunday, Dec. 7.
Huddle Up: McCoy's status will be updated further on Monday. Robert Griffin finished up the game Sunday against the Rams. If McCoy is injured, RG3 could be back under center versus the Giants in Week 15.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/5/14 2:25pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shin) missed practice Friday, Dec. 5 and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Huddle Up: Jackson hasn't practiced all week after getting injured last Sunday, and even though he's a gamer, he has to be considered a rather iffy Week 14 proposition at this point. Be prepared for a game-time decision, and get your backup plans in order in the meantime.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/4/14 10:28am ET
Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) was still visibly limping on the sidelines Wednesday, Dec. 3.
Huddle Up: Jackson still has a few days to lose the limp and play, but it's a situation worth monitoring if you're banking on a big fantasy outing from DJax this week.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 12/1/14 2:37pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson's (leg) fibula contusion isn't believed to be serious, and he's not expected to miss any time, according to a source close to him.
Huddle Up: Jackson's official status should be updated later in the day but early reports sound promising. He's likely to miss practice time this week though at the very least.
Colt McCoy - QBPosted 11/30/14 10:27pm ET
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, Nov. 30, that QB Colt McCoy will remain the starting quarterback heading into Week 14.
Huddle Up: McCoy has clearly outplayed Robert Griffin this season. However, McCoy won't be a fantasy option against a tough Rams defense in Week 14.
DeSean Jackson - WRPosted 11/30/14 10:27pm ET
Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (leg) left the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a right fibula contusion. He was helped to the sidelines in the fourth quarter and carted off to the locker room. He was limping noticeably after the game, and might be re-examined Monday, Dec. 1. However, X-rays were negative.
Huddle Up: We'll have to wait until Monday to get more information on Jackson's injury. It sounds like he'll miss practice time for sure and he should be considered questionable for Week 14.
