 width=>>Redskins To Bench RG3

(Ashburn, VA) -- Robert Griffin the Third is no longer the starting quarterback of the Washington Redskins. The "Washington Post" reports coach Jay Gruden will start Colt McCoy when the team visits the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Griffin has been ineffective for the slumping Redskins in five games this season, throwing for 869 yards with just two touchdowns and three interceptions. The 24-year-old was benched last season in favor of Kirk Cousins after 13 games. "RG3" is 4-and-14 as a starter since injuring his knee during the playoffs in January 2013. McCoy has completed 36-of-42 passes for 427 yards, a touchdown, rushed for another, and led the Redskins to two of the team's three victories this season.
