Supporters of the Washington Redskins skilled a collective panic attack in the course of Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons, viewing in helpless horror as commencing quarterback Robert Griffin was knocked from the game in the third quarter with a concussion following taking a shot from Atlanta linebacker Sean Weatherspoon http://www.shopredskinsofficial.com/EJ_Biggers_Redskins_Jersey/.
The Redskins were then forced to turn to one more rookie http://www.shopredskinsofficial.com/Alfred_Morris_Redskins_Jersey/, Kirk Cousins, below center, and whilst Cousins struggled somewhat in his NFL debut, all is not automatically doom and gloom if the Redskins have to roll him out there when they host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6.
Of program, this could all be moot. Griffin is reportedly undertaking significantly better on Monday after not knowing what quarter it was right after getting whacked by Weatherspoon, with Cousins himself telling Mike Jones of The Washington Submit that Griffin appeared none the worse for wear when they met Monday.
However, offered the NFL’s emphasis on “player security” (insert 18-game schedule or replacement official comment right here) and the league’s concussion protocols, Griffin will have an array of hoops to leap through ahead of he’s cleared for a return to action. And there is even now a really genuine possibility that the electrifying rookie could be sidelined for a week.
Have been that to be the case, the Redskins would ostensibly turn to Cousins, given that he’s been lively for all 5 games this season even though veteran Rex Grossman has not.
Things began out effectively enough for Cousins, who located broad receiver Santana Moss for a 77-yard touchdown pass, but soon after throwing interceptions on the game’s final two drives, Cousins expressed his frustrations to The Post’s Mark Maske.
Granted, Kirk Cousins is not Robert Griffin, but there are a handful of causes to feel that he could hold down the fort relatively effectively if pressed into action as the starter against Minnesota.
1st, it truly is evident that the Redskins must see something they like in Cousins, who threw for in excess of 3 Sonny Jurgensen Jersey,300 yards and 25 touchdowns final 12 months at Michigan State, or head coach Mike Shanahan would not have manufactured Cousins the main backup for Griffin more than Grossman to get started with.
