The Washington Redskins have a 2-5 record, and they continue to have issues at quarterback. Kirk Cousins had struggled immensely after replacing starter Robert Griffin III, who has been out for the past several weeks with a dislocated ankle.
Because of his lack of reliability, the Redskins benched Cousins in favor of Colt McCoy, who helped lead the Redskins to a narrow victory over the Tennessee Titans.
McCoy is expected to be the starting quarterback for the Redskins as they face the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football, but Griffin is reportedly close to returning from injury.
Head coach Jay Gruden is keeping his cards hidden, but the Redskins will not announce their starting quarterback until Monday.
However, Griffin has reportedly taken first-team reps and is progressing well, so it’s only a matter of time until he returns to leading the Redskins offense.
The Redskins will need a win against the Cowboys to have any chance of climbing back into the NFC East race.View poll on FanMob
