The Redskins confirmed this and I was preaching it all week on Twitter. At this state of the season, if RGIII were to sustain a major knee injury, a nine month rehab means he'd miss all of training camp. The Redskins can win wth Cousins. The Redskins could compete with Grossman so expect a similar offense of bootlegs and Alfred Morris.
At team meeting minutes ago, Redskins players were informed Kirk Cousins will start at Cleveland, according to text from person in room.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 16, 2012
