Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III’s latest benching may be short-lived as Colt McCoy has a strained neck.
Saying that the Washington Redskins have quarterback problems would be an understatement. Robert Griffin III has been a bust since having a promising rookie season in 2012 and winning Rookie of the Year honors.
Ever since a fateful knee injury in the playoffs, Griffin has never been the same, and the Redskins are on track to have their second consecutive losing season. Griffin has struggled greatly, and he sustained another injury before being replaced by Kirk Cousins.
Cousins was eventually benched for McCoy, but Griffin recovered from his ankle injury and regained the starting job. However, McCoy was given another chance and shined at times before struggling against the St. Louis Rams. He strained his neck in the loss.
This has led head coach Jay Gruden to announce that Griffin will start once again if McCoy’s neck problem persists.
Here is a tweet from Sports Illustrated Wire releasing Gruden’s response to his quarterback situation.
