Report: Redskins not ruling out Monday return of QB Griffin III
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jay Gruden is apparently still holding out hope that starting quarterback Robert Griffin III can play Monday night for the Redskins against Dallas, per the team website, which is reporting that the coach will not make a decision until that day.

Griffin, who watched backup Colt McCoy perform well in the Week 7 defeat of Tennessee, also did not rule out the possibility of being active. He has been sidelined since early in Week 2 with a dislocated ankle.

Redskins RB Alfred Morris blames self for poor ground game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Redskins featured back Alfred Morris is blaming the man he sees in the mirror for the rushing woes that have plagued his team in recent weeks.

The Redskins led the NFL in rushing in 2012 and ranked fifth last season despite their 3-13 record, greatly due to Morris, who totaled more yards on the ground than anyone in the league not named Adrian Peterson the last two years. But Washington sits 21st this season in rushing yards and 20th in YPC. Morris has just 187 yards rushing in the last four games combined.

In studying his subpar performance Sunday against Tennessee, he noticed minor differences in the path he takes while carrying the ball, the Washington Times is reporting. He claims it's too close to the line of scrimmage, thereby limiting cutback opportunities and preventing his offensive linemen from effectively setting up their blocks.

"I can't really read it out like I'm supposed to," he said. "You think it's nothing, like, 'Oh, it's just a tight track.' But when you really look at it, especially after watching last week's film, it was like, 'Man. Geez. If my track was just a little wider, I could've pressed that more and set that block up a little better so I can get downhill.' It's little things like that. They make a huge difference."

Redskins QB situation unchanged, Colt McCoy still Week 8 starter
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Thursday nothing has changed with the status of the quarterback situation. He said Robert Griffin III (ankle) is progressing and was limited in practice again Thursday, but Colt McCoy remains as of now the starter for Week 8 against the Cowboys.

"Robert hasn't changed. Not a whole lot to say. Not going to announce if he's active or not until Monday night," Gruden said, per The Washington Post.

Gruden reiterated Griffin will slide back into the starter's role once he is healthy. Griffin has missed the last five games.

"When Robert's healthy, he'll be the starter. We just don't know when that will be," Gruden said.

Better to sit DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been hit or miss from week to week, but you can't get around the fact that in three of the last five weeks, he's gone for more than 100 yards and a touchdown.

The problem is Kirk Cousins was his quarterback for all three of those games. The Redskins are turning to Colt McCoy for Week 8 at Dallas.

That's bad news for all the Redskins wide receivers, but especially Jackson, whose production is mostly tied to his ability to beat the defense deep. McCoy isn't one for going deep. He averaged 5.9 yards per attempt in his last year as an NFL starter, and aside from that short pass that Pierre Garcon turned into 70-yard touchdown, McCoy had 10 completions for just 58 yards in Week 7.

That doesn't mean Garcon is safe. Apart from that score, he had four catches for 17 yards in Week 7 and averaged just 27.3 yards in his previous three games. He should fare better than Jackson with McCoy, but ultimately, an inferior quarterback isn't going to do him good.

You might want to sit both in Fantasy for the time being.

Not looking good for Alfred Morris
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the news that Colt McCoy will start at quarterback for the Redskins Week 8 at Dallas, running back Alfred Morris' chances for a bounce-back performance go from bad to worse.

Not only is he facing a defense that has allowed the ninth-fewest Fantasy points per game, but he also won't have a quarterback who can help keep defenses honest. Dating back to his days with the Browns, McCoy hasn't shown the ability to stretch the field, and though his final line in relief of Kirk Cousins Sunday looked good, that was mostly because wide receiver Pierre Garcon turned what should have been a short catch into a 70-yard touchdown. Otherwise, McCoy completed 10 passes for just 58 yards.

With such a limited passing game, the Redskins are basically inviting the Cowboys to stack the box against them. Morris has had a hard enough time since starting quarterback Robert Griffin III went down in Week 2, averaging just 60.6 total yards in the five games started with Cousins. Now with McCoy under center, he might even be a sit in Fantasy. Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him just 29th among running backs for Week 8.
