- Robert Griffin III isn't done yet with the Washington Redskins.
A fifth starting quarterback change this season, this one mandated by Colt McCoy's aggravated neck injury, means RGIII will get the call Saturday against the Eagles (4:30, CBS3, NFL Network).
"He's got every chance this week against the Philadelphia Eagles to take this position and run with it," coach Jay Gruden said yesterday. "And I'd like to see him have some urgency about him and play well, and hopefully there won't be much of a debate if he does well."
Chances seemed slim that Griffin would get another start this season. His future in Washington became an open question, after he was benched 2 weeks ago amid biting criticism from Gruden over the Heisman Trophy winner's ability to operate a pro-style passing attack.
Now Gruden would just like somebody - anybody - to take the job and claim it. Griffin, McCoy and Kirk Cousins have combined to produce a 3-11 record and a guaranteed spot in the NFC East cellar for the sixth time in seven seasons.
