by Michael Hurcomb |

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

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 |

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.

Robert Griffin III is Redskins' contingency plan 'for now'
by Larry Hartstein |

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said if quarterback Colt McCoy (neck) can't play Week 15 at the Giants, Robert Griffin III would start, reports the Washington Post. But Gruden added RG3 is the contingency plan "for now" and that Kirk Cousins also would get consideration.

"It's hard to say right now," Gruden said, per the paper. "I don't know how healthy [McCoy] is. I'm not going to make any assumptions or conclusions until I get all the tests back from the doctor."

McCoy left Sunday's shutout loss with a neck injury and was replaced by Griffin. Gruden hopes Griffin will be more decisive if he gets another chance.

"Hopefully he's taken a step back and taken everything in and just continuing to learn the position and learning about the concepts that we run, and hopefully he'll have more of a confident air about him when he jumps back in there, and there's less indecision is what we're hoping for," Gruden said.

"That he is decisive and will just pull the trigger and make plays," Gruden added. "We've just got to get him to relax and play and have some fun and lead a team, if he's the guy to do it."

McCoy had a stiff neck Monday morning and had to turn his whole body to look left or right, the paper said. McCoy replaced Griffin as the starter two weeks ago after Griffin was ineffective in three straight games.
