Percy Harvin still week-to-week
Thursday, December 12, 2013, 1:46am
Harvin didn’t practice on Wednesday in advance of a trip to New York to play the Giants, and coach Pete Carroll characterizes Harvin as week-to-week.
“We’re trying to figure this thing out and when he gets out on the practice field, then it’s truly day-to-day and we’ll see how he responds,” Carroll said, via quotes distributed by the team. “So as of today, he’s not going. He won’t be going, he’s rehabbing. That means that he’s running in his rehab work and we have to see if he can tolerate it and come on back and give us a couple of days work. We’ll have to make sure that he’s right. So we’re going to take our time and I know it seems like, ‘How can you take your time when you’re this close to the end of the season?’ But we still have to do that to take care of him.”
Report: Kirk Cousins to start in Week 15
Wednesday, December 11, 2013, 11:13am
NFL Network, which had earlier reported Cousins would start, reported that Redskins players have been told that Griffin will be inactive for Sunday's game and veteran Rex Grossman would be the backup quarterback.
Coach Mike Shanahan raised the possibility Monday of benching Griffin for the last three regular-season games, citing 24 sacks in the past five games and the desire to keep him healthy for the offseason. Griffin's offseason work this year was compromised by the major knee injury he suffered in the team's playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks in January.
Cousins has one NFL start in his career -- Week 15 last year against the Browns in Cleveland. He threw for 329 yards on 26-of-37 passing with two touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed three times for 22 yards. He was the #7 QB that week. He comes in at #19 in a nice matchup against the Falcons, though he carries some risk since the Redskins organization is a dysfunctional mess right now. Alfred Morris may see a few extra carries, but the defense won't have to respect Cousins' running ability as much, so they can key on Morris. Pierre Garcon looks like an upside WR2, while Jordan Reed -- if healthy -- isn't a bad option at tight end.
