Redskins will start Robert Griffin against Colts

The Redskins lost again on Sunday as Robert Griffin fumbled to end their final possession.

Griffin has been a hot target of criticism in Washington with the Redskins now 3-8 on the season. A week ago he threw his teammates under the bus following a blowout loss to the Buccaneers at which point head coach Jay Gruden said it was time for Griffin’s coddling phase to end.

After another poor performance on Sunday the Redskins will give the former first round pick at-least one more chance when they travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts.

Griffin was 11-of-19 for a mere 106 yards on Sunday against the 49ers. He offered nothing on the ground rushing four times for 11 yards.

The decision to stick with Griffin will do little to silence those calling for Colt McCoy to start, but the Redskins need to find out if Griffin is or can be a franchise quarterback.
