The Redskins are planning to start Colt McCoy over Robert Griffin III at quarterback Sunday at Indianapolis, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The move is expected to become official Wednesday when coach Jay Gruden meets with reporters, Schefter said.
Gruden informed the team Wednesday morning about the change at quarterback, according to Schefter.
McCoy went 2-0 while Griffin recovered from his dislocated ankle. Griffin threw for 106 yards, took five sacks and lost a fumble on his team’s last offensive play Week 12 at San Francisco.
Over the last three games, all losses, Griffin has thrown for 564 yards and two touchdowns with three interceptions. He’s holding the ball too long and not throwing with authority when he does let it fly.
Although Griffin is not part of Sunday’s game plan, he remains “a significant part of the Redskins’ long-term plan,” Schefter said.
