Mike Shanahan gave an indication he might switch from Robert Griffin III to Kirk Cousins.
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan is reportedly considering a change in quarterbacks.
Shanahan gave an indication that he might make the switch from Robert Griffin III to Kirk Cousins on Monday, saying such a move would be to keep Griffin healthy heading into the offseason. The second-year quarterback made a quick recovery from major knee surgery performed last January, but has struggled for most of the 2013 campaign.
Fox Sports, NFL.com and ESPN are all reporting that the change could be made for at least Sunday's game against Atlanta and possibly for the final three games of a disastrous season, or for as long as the embattled Shanahan remains coach. Speculation concerning Shanahan's immediate job status has swirled recently.
