Unless RG3 is ready, McCoy to start for Redskins
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) --- Redskins coach Jay Gruden says that unless Robert Griffin
III is 100 percent ready to return from injury, Colt McCoy will start at
quarterback against the Dallas Cowboys next week.
Gruden says Monday he can't rule out Griffin, "but he still has a way's to go."
Griffin has been sidelined since dislocating his left ankle in Week 2 against
Kirk Cousins took over as the starter, but he was benched at halftime Sunday,
when McCoy came in and led Washington to a come-from-behind 19-17 victory over
the Tennessee Titans.
If McCoy does begin next Monday night's game against Dallas, it would be his
first NFL start since December 2011, when he was with the Cleveland Browns.
