Five questions Redskins beat writer Zac Boyer has heading into Washington's Monday night game against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Washington Redskins were only whistled for four penalties in Sunday's crippling 24-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. But offensive lineman Trent Williams accused umpire Roy Ellison of cursing him late in the first half.
Redskins beat reporter Zac Boyer poses five questions heading into Sunday's game against San Diego
The veteran receiver was among several cuts by the team Monday. He was hindered through most of training camp by a hamstring injury. He caught two passes for 33 yards in preseason games.
Griffin took part in the first three of the team's 10 periods of practice, as he did during the first three practices. But he did some different drills Monday.
Griffin does not want to be a running back. He wants to be an elite passer. But as Shanahan so forcefully explained to reporters Wednesday, the zone read will help him to achieve that goal.
Overall, coach Mike Shanahan lived up to his word. The Redskins mostly remained idle, limited by having only $3 million or so of salary cap space because of their $18 million cap penalty.
As seven NFL head coaches lost their jobs Monday, Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan implied offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, his son, wouldn't agree to interview requests until after Washington's playoff run ends.
A quick recap of the Redskins' 27-20 victory over the Eagles.
Robert Griffin III sat at his locker, still wearing his gold game pants, and tried to piece together the NFL's complex playoff puzzle. Next to him, Rex Grossman slid a bright blue tie around his neck. Griffin and Grossman wondered aloud whether the Washington Redskins' heart-stopping 27-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday was enough to qualify them for the playoffs.
The quick recap of the Redskins' 31-28 overtime win over the Ravens.
Trent Williams wasn't totally healthy, bothered by a thigh injury. Neither was London Fletcher, hampered by a bad ankle. But there was little if any doubt that the Washington Redskins' captains would be on the field for Monday night's showdown with the New York Giants.
When Robert Griffin III reared back and let the ball fly down the field in Santana Moss' direction, he was reminded of a lesson his college coach at Baylor, Art Briles, imparted on him.
There is little Robert Griffin III hasn't done in his first two months in the NFL, from compiling the league's top completion percentage to leading quarterbacks in rushing. The rookie spawned a new meme, Griffining, and returned from a concussion to deliver the longest run by a quarterback in 16 years.
We knew there would be days like this for Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins. Gray days. Rainy days. Days when the opposition ran around in throwback uniforms that made them look like bumblebees. Even days when they were victimized by a running back named Rainey.
But while Morgan was frustrated after the game – he told the Times he was asked not to speak to reporters – he may have a chance to play again soon.
"He look real good," receiver Joshua Morgan said.
