Washington Redskins news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 30 Oct 2014 10:26:13 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) received most of the work with the first-team offense during practice Thursday, Oct. 30, and will start in Week 9 if he does not have any setbacks, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Gruden said the team believes Griffin is 100 percent physically but want to make sure he is up to speed mentally.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin should be the starting quarterback in Week 9 but could be rusty after missing several weeks. Owners can start Griffin this week but may want to lower their expectations.

Washington Redskins S Ryan Clark (ankle, shoulder) and OT Trent Williams (knee) were limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29. LB Ryan Kerrigan (wrist), LB Trent Murphy (knee), CB Tracy Porter (hamstring), LB Perry Riley (knee) and LB Keenan Robinson (shoulder) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin is not available in FantasyScore this week, but he is a decent option in season ling leagues.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) could play against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 9, according to head coach Jay Gruden. Griffin practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 29, and split first-team repetitions with QB Colt McCoy. Gruden said Griffin's situation is now more mental than physical. "We'll see it's all going to depend on how he does in tomorrow and Friday," Gruden said. "And moving forward, how I feel he's coming back. From a physical standpoint he looks good, now it's a matter of mental and getting back into the football part of it. If he looks good in that regard then there's a chance he could play and if not and he needs another week, he'll take another week."
Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Griffin isn't available to play at FantasyScore this weekend, but he should now be owned in all other leagues with his return right around the corner. McCoy played surprisingly well on Monday night, but he's a desperation sleeper play against the Vikes.

Fantasy Tip: It is still too early in the week to know if Griffin will be ready to go in Week 9, with that determination likely coming in the next two days of practice. Check back before you commit to him in FantasyScore.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) is "very, very, very close" to returning to game action, according to head coach Jay Gruden. "Physically I think he'll be ready to go. Doctors are feeling pretty good about it, they still want to feel around this week until we make the final determination. I just want to make sure he feels good in the pocket," Gruden said. The Redskins still don't want to rush Griffin back too soon, though, so the evaluation of him could last another week.
Fantasy Tip: Griffin should be owned in all fantasy football leagues at this point. How he looks in practice this week will likely determine if he plays against the Minnesota Vikings. Colt McCoy ($3,900) played surprisingly well in the Week 8 win, though, so he could see another crack at it.

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson had six catches on seven targets for 136 yards in Week 8, and he has topped 100 receiving yards three times in his last four games after managing just one 100-yard game in the first four games of the season.
Fantasy Tip: After a slow start with his new team, Jackson has begun making big plays down the field on a routine basis. There is always a little risk when you use a player that depends on the deep ball to produce points, but Jackson is the type of high-risk, high-reward option that can separate you from the pack at FantasyScore. He has a nice matchup on tap in Week 9 against Minnesota.

Fantasy Tip: Colt McCoy will start in Griffin's place against the Dallas Cowboys but should not be a starting option for owners.

Washington Redskins DE Chris Baker (thigh), OT Tyler Polumbus (knee), LB Perry Riley (knee) and OT Trent Williams (knee) practiced Saturday, Oct. 25, and are probable for Week 8. FS Ryan Clark (ankle, shoulder) and CB Tracy Porter (hamstring) were limited in practice and are questionable for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Morris ($6,100; 12.2% of your cap) is a solid RB2 on FantasyScore this week, but he faces a tough matchup against the upstart Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Griffin does start Monday night, it might be best to steer clear of him to see how he will be used coming off his extended hiatus.

Fantasy Tip: Morris appears to be on track to play in Week 8 despite the injury. Morris costs $6,100 on FantasyScore but could be a risky play against the Dallas Cowboys.
