Fantasy Tip: If McCoy does start, he's still not worth a starting spot on your fantasy team. Although, he could be a value play on FantasyScore.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is expected to be put through a rigorous workout Wednesday, Oct. 22, that will give team officials a better idea of where he's at in his recovery. Griffin has already joined practices for stretching, warm-ups, individual drills and limited handoffs with the scout team. Head coach Jay Gruden has said he'd like to have Griffin log at least two weeks of practice before returning to a starting role. QB Colt McCoy appears to have the inside track to start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if it's between he and QB Kirk Cousins. "It's a good sign the way Colt finished the game, ran the offense," Gruden said, alluding to his poise and efficiency in engineering the game-winning touchdown drive on the last possession, which started with 3 minutes and 14 seconds remaining. "Very smart and very efficient. Did some good things."
Fantasy Tip: It would be a surprise to see Griffin start against the Cowboys on Monday night. McCoy will be cheap at FantasyScore, but he's not worth considering on the road against a a stout Dallas D.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could start in Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys if he looks really good in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22, according to a team source. The team would ideally like to hold him out another week in order to prepare. If he doesn't start, QB Colt McCoy will likely receive the starting nod for the first time since December of 2011 with the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin will almost assuredly start over McCoy when he's ready, so it's definitely time to snatch RG3 up off the waiver wire if he's still out there if you're hurting at the quarterback position. It wouldn't be wise to start either McCoy or Griffin against the Cowboys in Week 8, though.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Alfred Morris (ankle) left the Week 7 game against the Tennessee Titans briefly due to a left ankle injury, but he was able to return and finish the game. Morris carried 18 times for 54 yards, and he did not have a reception.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins was benched in favor of QB Colt McCoy in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans. After the game, head coach Jay Gruden said Sunday, Oct. 19, that a decision on the starting quarterback for Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys will be made during the week. It's uncertain if QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is an option.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy likely would be a short-term option at quarterback since Robert Griffin should return in the near future. Owners should not consider starting Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy if they are the options next week.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Jackson is only dealing with a minor injury. Jackson could be limited during practice next week but should have a good chance to play in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Morris is dealing with a minor injury, but owners will need to check after the game to have a better idea of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to receive a better idea of the severity of his injury. Andre Roberts could become more involved in the passing game but probably would not be more than a flex option.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Morris' injury is not known at this point, so owners will need to watch for an update. Roy Helu likely will receive most of the work while Morris is out and could be a solid pickup on FantasyScore depending on the price.
