    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) received most of the work with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, Oct. 30, and will start in Week 9 if he does not have any setbacks, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said the team believes Griffin is 100 percent physically but want to make sure he is up to speed mentally.

    Huddle Up: All systems appear to be go for the QB at the moment so definitely get him into your lineup if you've been waiting patiently.

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: This was the QB's first full practice since dislocating the ankle in Week 2, and it's going to make for an interesting rest of the week to see who gets the starting call Sunday in Minneapolis. Of course, you'll have no choice but to stay tuned.

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is expected to start in the team's Week 9 game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to league sources. Griffin practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 29, and split first-team repetitions with QB Colt McCoy. Head coach Jay Gruden said Griffin's situation is now more mental than physical. 'We'll see it's all going to depend on how he does in tomorrow and Friday,' Gruden said. 'And moving forward, how I feel he's coming back. From a physical standpoint he looks good, now it's a matter of mental and getting back into the football part of it. If he looks good in that regard then there's a chance he could play and if not and he needs another week, he'll take another week.'

    Huddle Up: With Washington on bye in Week 10, the thinking has been that RGIII would likely sit this coming Sunday to give him an extra 2 weeks of recovery time, but he appears to be further along that most have thought. Let's see, though, how the rest of the week plays out.

  • Colt McCoy - QB
    Posted 10/28/14 1:36am ET

    Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy was 25-of-30 for 299 yards and an interception and also ran 7 times for 16 yards, including a 7-yard TD, on Monday, Oct. 27 in a 20-17 overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: McCoy, making his first start since 2011 and becoming the third Washington QB to start this season, was more impressive in reality than fantasy in directing the upset win in his home state. It might be a short stay, though, in the lineup as Robert Griffin III could return from his ankle injury and start the team's Week 9 game in Minnesota. RGIII will need to get in a full week of practice -- or something very close to it -- so see what develops this week in D.C.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 10/28/14 11:27am ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had six catches on seven targets for 136 yards in Week 8, and he has topped 100 receiving yards three times in his last four games after managing just one 100-yard game in the first four games of the season.

    Huddle Up: Jackson was on the business end of a long ball from Colt McCoy Monday night, a bit surprising given McCoy's perceived limitations in that area. He's providing Jay Gruden's offense with more than just a deep threat, however, and whether it's McCoy again or RG3 at the helm Jackson remains Washington's go-to receiver.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB
    Posted 10/28/14 8:17pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is 'very, very, very close' to returning to game action, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'Physically I think he'll be ready to go. Doctors are feeling pretty good about it, they still want to feel around this week until we make the final determination. I just want to make sure he feels good in the pocket,' Gruden said. The Redskins still don't want to rush Griffin back too soon, though, so the evaluation of him could last another week.

    Huddle Up: RGIII's return definitely is close, but truth be told, Washington is a lot less desperate for his return than it was before third stringer Colt McCoy engineered Monday night's upset win in Dallas. With a bye looming in Week 10, the team could very well decide to roll with McCoy again Sunday in Minneapolis and give RGIII the extra 2 weeks to get ready.

    Posted 10/27/14 8:03pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: RGIII's return isn't too much farther down the line, but it won't come tonight as he'll miss his 6th straight game. Colt McCoy get the start -- his 22nd since entering the league in 2010 and first since 2011.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB
    Posted 10/25/14 3:20pm ET

    Washington Redskins Robert Griffin III (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Griffin is unlikely to suit up against Dallas. RG3 is expected back after Washington's Week 10 bye. Colt McCoy will start against the Cowboys, making the Dallas defense an enticing play this week.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB
    Posted 10/23/14 10:16am ET

    Updating a previous report, there is no chance Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) plays in the Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Oct. 27, multiple sources said Wednesday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Looks like all systems go for Colt McCoy to lead Washington against the Cowboys. McCoy's run as the starter may be short-lived, however, as it appears RG3 is very close to returning.

  • Alfred Morris - RB
    Posted 10/23/14 6:37pm ET

    Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ankle) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 23.

    Huddle Up: Morris should be good to go Monday night, but fantasy patience is wearing thin as the RB hasn't rushed for more than 63 yards and has only 1 TD over the last 4 games.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB
    Posted 10/23/14 6:37pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unlikely to be ready to play Monday, Oct. 27, against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said that Griffin has looked great in practices the last 2 weeks, but cited the fact that he's rusty and hasn't had meaningful repetitions in six weeks as a factor. "First it starts with the doctors telling me he's full-go, as far as being able to take a hit and all that good stuff," Gruden said. "And then it's gonna be getting more reps, and then I've got to see him comfortable throwing the timing routes, the out routes on time with no hitch, and all the reads and all the progressions. He's going to have to get more and more reps.'

    Huddle Up: RGIII is worth a roster stash if you have the room, but as expected, it's going to be the Colt McCoy Show on Monday night in Dallas.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB
    Posted 10/22/14 3:54pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's (ankle) status for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be determined by team doctors, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'It's up to the trainers and doctors right now, they gotta clear him, No. 1, like I said,' Gruden added. 'No. 2, he's got to feel good. But it's gonna be a process of how he feels tomorrow, how he feels the next day, and how he's throwing and how he's playing the position.' Griffin took part in individual drills in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, and took repetitions in the team portion. Gruden said Griffin looked good doing the drills.

    Huddle Up: Griffin is certainly getting closer, but we're betting it's another game or two before he's back in the D.C. saddle. Definitely expect Colt McCoy to get the start Monday night vs. the Cowboys.

  • Colt McCoy - QB
    Posted 10/20/14 11:58pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Colt McCoy would start this week if QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is unable to play, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

    Huddle Up: Griffin will be put through some tests Wednesday to see where he's at in his recovery, but his return likely remains a few weeks away. That means McCoy, who was 11-of-12 for 128 yards and a TD in relief Sunday, will make his first start since 2011 next Monday night in Dallas.

  • Pierre Garcon - WR
    Posted 10/17/14 10:14am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon needs more touches, according to head coach Jay Gruden. He has eight catches in the last three games. Garcon has just one catch out of six third-down targets this season.

    Huddle Up: Garcon has seen his targets migrate to DeSean Jackson and whichever tight end is healthy in a given week, but it sounds as if the team is refocusing its efforts to get Garcon involved. That's welcome news for fantasy owners who have been banking on Garcon as a PPR stud.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB
    Posted 10/15/14 6:17pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) 'looked fine' and had 'a little bounce in to his step' in on-field drills Wednesday, Oct. 15, and head coach Jay Gruden said Griffin will return to his starting quarterback job when doctors have cleared him to return to action. 'He looks good so far. He's making good progress as we knew he would, the type of worker he is. But making progress in the training room and making progress in the practice field are two entirely different things. We have to make sure he gets right both mentally and physically before he gets back on the field,' Gruden said.

    Huddle Up: Not at all a surprise given Kirk Cousins' struggles, which aren't necessarily reflected in his fantasy numbers. Still, while RGIII has been a limited practice participant, he likely remains at least several weeks away from having a good shot at playing in an actual game.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 10/14/14 4:08pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins is not in danger of being benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy after the team lost their fourth straight game in Week 6, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Cousins now leads the league with eight interceptions, with seven of them coming in the last three games.

    Huddle Up: Cousins has been better in fantasy, ranking sixth with an average of 24.11 fantasy points per game, since replacing the injured RGIII in Week 2 and is a low-end QB1/QB2 in 10- and 12-team leagues despite his struggles.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 10/10/14 4:28pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and he'll be a game-time decision in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Huddle Up: Reed, who's been limited all week, has expressed fairly strong hope that'll return following a 4-game absence, but the final decision is going to take his fantasy owners right down to wire, and it's a late-afternoon kickoff Sunday to boot. Definitely have a backup plan at the ready.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 10/9/14 10:38pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday and has missed the past four games with a strained hamstring, but he is expressing optimism about returning in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals if he doesn't suffer any setbacks. "Yeah, definitely. Shooting for Sunday," Reed said. "Yeah, honestly. I feel like if I get everything done this week and everything goes smoothly, I can be out there on Sunday." Reed noticed a significant improvement with his hamstring in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8. There remains some tightness, but he's close to full strength.

    Huddle Up: Remember Reed? Don't forget about a TE who's productive when he plays, but the second part of that phrase is the key part. See if he's able to do more in practice Friday.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 10/7/14 11:28am ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had five catches for 157 yards, including a 60-yard score, Monday, Oct. 6.

    Huddle Up: Big plays are what D-Jax does best, and he found success even against the vaunted Seattle secondary. Bodes well for his fantasy prospects going forward.

  • Robert Griffin III - QB
    Posted 10/7/14 7:08pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) will not be back on the field in the near future, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin wasn't in a walking boot Monday, Oct. 6, and he looked to be in great shape while on the sidelines throwing passes to his teammates. Gruden said Griffin is unlikely to join the team soon in practice. The next step will likely be to have Griffin increase his workload on a treadmill.

    Huddle Up: You can't count on RGIII to be back anytime soon -- at least until the start of the fantasy playoffs -- leaving Kirk Cousins as a solid QB2.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 10/6/14 8:13pm ET

    The Washington Redskins have declared TE Jordan Reed, CB Richard Crawford, QB Robert Griffin III, WR Santana Moss, OG Spencer Long, CB Tracy Porter, SS Trenton Robinson inactive for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Reed will miss a fourth straight game, and hopefully his fantasy owners have Paul as a fall-back plan. Paul went out with a concussion in the Week 4 Thursday night loss to the Giants, but he's had 11 days to recover and has had 17 catches for 227 yards and a TD in the 3 games Reed has missed.

  • Niles Paul - TE
    Posted 10/4/14 1:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (concussion) is expected to play in Week 5 after being cleared for full practice participation Friday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: With Jordan Reed likely to miss another week, Paul will start against Seattle. He's a low-end TE1 against a tough Seahawks defense.

  • Niles Paul - TE
    Posted 10/3/14 8:20pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: It's a good sign that Paul will play this week. With Jordan Reed questionable once again, Paul looks like he'll get the start against Seattle. He's a borderline TE1 with a tough matchup.

  • Niles Paul - TE
    Posted 9/30/14 4:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 30, and remains in the league's concussion protocol. However, head coach Jay Gruden said Paul is 'making very good progress.'

    Huddle Up: Paul has an extra day to work with this week with Washington not playing until Monday night, so check in later in the week and see if he's still progressing.

  • Jordan Reed - TE
    Posted 9/30/14 4:19pm ET

    Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) did individual drills in practice Tuesday, Sept. 30.

    Huddle Up: Reed hasn't played since the opening game, and this might be the week he returns with Washington having 10 days between games. See if can get on this practice field later this week.

  • Niles Paul - TE
    Posted 9/26/14 1:26am ET

    Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul suffered a concussion during the team's Week 4 game Thursday, Sept. 25. He caught three passes for 60 yards before departing with the injury in the second quarter.

    Huddle Up: Paul was waylaid by several Giants' DBs after catching a pass over the middle -- drawing a head-to-head contact flag -- and briefly appeared to be out cold before leaving the field and the game. The only bright spot is that Washington has 11 days before its next game, but fellow TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) could be back by then as well.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 9/26/14 1:46am ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 19 of his 33 pass attempts for 257 yards and had one touchdown and four interceptions Thursday, Sept. 25. He also lost a fumble in the team's 45-14 loss to the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Well nothing like a five-turnover disaster to tromp on the Cousins bandwagon brakes. He'll still be starting, of course, for the at least the next month or so but any talk of him securing the long-term starting gig was effectively thrown away Thursday night.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 9/25/14 2:11pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) will test his injured shoulder before the game but is expected to play in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Jackson is a gamer, and you're really not doubting him now after his 5-117-1 showing with the injured shoulder past Sunday in Philly are you?

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 9/25/14 2:26pm ET

    Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins has played well in relief of QB Robert Griffin III both this season and last year, but there is a trend that has continued in Cousins' two games this year: Teams have been able to figure him out as the games go along. He completed his first 12 passes against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2 and opened the game with eight straight completions against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, but then he completed only around half of his remaining throws in those games. Down the stretch last year, Cousins' stats were worse with each loss, and he threw four touchdowns to five interceptions down the stretch.

    Huddle Up: Something to definitely keep an eye on, but wait for clear signs of regression before you start thinking about removing him from your starting lineup.

  • DeSean Jackson - WR
    Posted 9/25/14 7:57pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) is active Thursday, Sept. 25, against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: As expected, Jackson is a full go tonight in D.C. Start him if you need him.
