Griffin, who has completed 60.1 percent of his passes for 3,203 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions this season, said after Sunday's loss that he thought starting Sunday against the Falcons is "not an issue." Kirk Cousins, meanwhile, said he would prepare as though if it were an option, though he did not plan to dwell on it.
Jordan Reed will again land on the inactive list for the Washington Redskins as they face off against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday.
After the worst game of his career, should Alfred Morris still be a fantasy starter this week?
Though the Redskins surpassed 100 rushing yards Sunday for the 11th consecutive game, 88 of those yards were gained by quarterback Robert Griffin III. Morris managed only 11 carries for 26 yards, and he gained 15 yards on two carries in the second half.
Santana Moss has been in the NFL for 13 years and says this season is the worst officiating he's seen.
Five questions Redskins beat writer Zac Boyer has heading into Washington's Sunday afternoon game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Even the Redskins' opponents think RG3 is taking too many hits. Just ask Antrel Rolle!
Here's another adjective Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin can call his ill-timed two-step onto the field last Thursday night against Baltimore.
After knocking him down all night, Justin Tuck gave Robert Griffin III a nice lift after Sunday's game.
Much has been made of numerous mistakes made by the referees in the Redskins loss to the New York Giants Sunday night, but in the end, does it really matter?
In all, five Redskins players have sustained a concussion this season: tight end Jordan Reed, safeties Reed Doughty, Brandon Meriweather and Jordan Pugh, and cornerback David Amerson. Eight players sustained one last season, with only right tackle Tyler Polumbus missing the following game because symptoms persisted.
The worst part, Barry Cofield said, is that the Washington Redskins have to show up at on Monday morning and pretend everything is all right. A 24-17 loss to the New York Giants at FedEx Field on Sunday night left the Redskins with a reality they had been staring down for several weeks: They are no longer eligible for the postseason, left home again in January, and for the next four weeks they will wind down a season without aim or answer.
There is little left for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III to say now. The playoffs long ago fell out of reach for his team. There is nothing left to play for now besides pride and teammates. Not even Griffin's best first half of the season, a 16-for-17 passing performance where almost everything he threw was on target, could take away the sting of yet another loss, this time 24-17 to the New York Giants.
Referee Jeff Triplette acknowledged the down marker was moved incorrectly on the Washington Redskins' last possession of a 24-17 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday night, but said halting play to fix the mistake "would have given an unfair advantage."
This was the kind of passing clinic for which Peyton Manning has become famous.
