Kyle Shanahan: Redskins' Kirk Cousins can be a 'great quarterback'
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan used to work with Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins.

While RG III and Colt McCoy had more playing time, Cousins had more passing yards and touchdowns last season, and Shanahan is impressed with what he saw. 

Shanahan said that Cousins had a chance to be a "great quarterback some day". 

"Kirk's one of the sharper guys I've been around," Shanahan said, per NFL.com. "He processes things so fast. He lets it rip. He's as tough as can be."

Redskins QB Kirk Cousins taking philosophical approach to 2015
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, who flashed as a starter early last season before falling from grace, understands that only strong performances on the field can put him back on the map.

But that doesn't mean competing for the starting job. At this point, he's only battling Colt McCoy for the backup spot.

"I think it's just my job to put my head down, keep working and give them reason to play me," he told the Washington Post. "And if they're not going to play me, then to give them reason to say, 'We're excited if this guy ever does get in a game.' That's the best chance I have to be successful."

Cousins played in six games last season and led Redskins quarterbacks in passing yards (1,710) and touchdowns (10). But nine interceptions hurt his cause.

"Coaches are paid to decide where people stack up on the depth chart," he said. "But it's my job to go out on the field and play well. I think if I do that, then I can be at peace with whatever happens."

Report: Redskins re-signing QB Colt McCoy
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Redskins are re-signing quarterback Colt McCoy, leaving them with the same trio of quarterbacks as last year, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. McCoy played well in five games last season, completing 71.1 percent of his throws for 1.057 yards and four touchdowns with three interceptions.

He and Kirk Cousins again will be ready to step in if Robert Griffin III gets hurt or is ineffective.

Kirk Cousins would like to be traded, if RG3 named starting QB
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins said he would like to be traded if Robert Griffin III is named the starting quarterback for 2015, according to NBCWashington.com.

Cousins said there is no point to remaining with the team, if there is no quarterback competition. Cousins will be in the final year of his rookie contract in 2015.

"Isn't it obvious I couldn't stay here," Cousins said about wanting a trade, if RG3 is named the starter.

Cousins went 1-4 in five starts in 2014 and is 2-7 in nine career starts. He has thrown more interceptions (19) than passing touchdowns (18) in 14 career games. He also has a 59 percent career completion rate.

Robert Griffin III dealing with 'mildly sprained shoulder'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a "mildly sprained [throwing] shoulder" when he was sacked by Fletcher Cox in the Week 16 win over the Eagles, coach Jay Gruden told the Washington Post. Griffin was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Gruden said Griffin did some throwing Wednesday and should be fine with rest and treatment, but a final determination will be made Friday. Kirk Cousins would start Sunday if Griffin is unable to play.

Washington is a 6.5-point home underdog to the playoff-bound Cowboys.
