News: Coach Jay Gruden said Monday that Cousins' teammate, Colt McCoy, will handle Washington's starter's reps at quarterback this week. Impact: The team hasn't completely ruled out the possible return of Robert Griffin (ankle) this weekend, but at this stage, it's clear that if he remains out -- which is the likely outcome -- then McCoy will draw the team's Week 8 starting QB nod over Cousins.(RotoWire, )

News: Unless Robert Griffin III is 100 percent ready to return from injury, Colt McCoy, not Cousins, will start at quarterback against the Dallas Cowboys next week. Impact: Griffin has been sidelined since dislocating his left ankle in Week 2 against Jacksonville. Cousins took over as the starter, but he was benched at halftime Sunday, when McCoy came in and led Washington to a come-from-behind 19-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans.(STATS, 2:54pm)

News: It's unclear who will start at quarterback in Week 8 for the Redskins, the Washington Post reports. Impact: Cousins was benched in the second half of Week 7 versus the Titans, Colt McCoy played well in relief, and Robert Griffin III (ankle) is scheduled to return to practice this week. It will be important to see who takes the most practice reps this week.(RotoWire, )

News: Cousins was replaced by Colt McCoy as the Redskins' quarterback to begin the second-half of Sunday's game versus the Titans, ESPN reports. Impact: Cousins completed 10-of-16 passes for 139 yards and an interception, and also lost a fumble in a lackluster first-half Sunday. With the Redskins aiming to invigorate their offense, coach Jay Gruden opted to give McCoy the opportunity to start the second-half, which resulted in a 70-yard touchdown pass on Washington's first drive.(RotoWire, )

News: Cousins was 24 of 38 for 354 yards, including a 64-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson, but threw three fourth-quarter interceptions for Washington on Sunday. Impact: Cousins leads the NFL with eight interceptions. The rumor mill around the nation's capital is saying that Colt McCoy could start next week against the Titans so stayed tuned and monitor the situation closely.(STATS, 5:15pm)

News: Cousins completed 24-of-38 passes for 354 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions in Sunday's 30-20 loss at Arizona. Impact: It was a close game heading into the fourth quarter, but Cousins made a mess of things, throwing all three of his interceptions in the final 15 minutes. As usual, Cousins did make a couple of nice throws, including a 64-yard touchdown to DeSean Jackson, although a majority of the damage came after the catch. The third-year QB is putting up solid fantasy numbers in the absence of RGIII, but the turnovers are starting to pile up (eight interceptions and one fumble lost). He did get back a major weapon Sunday, as TE Jordan Reed played for the first time since Week 1. Reed finished with eight catches for 92 yards, serving as a security blanket to Cousins, especially late in the second half with the Redskins in comeback mode. Cousins will try to get back on track next week, facing Tennessee at home.(RotoWire, )

News: Cousins completed 21 of 36 passes Monday night for 283 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

He is 1-6 as a starting quarterback.(STATS, 4:02pm)
