Redskins to start Cousins

Robert Griffin III's sophomore season hasn't lived up to the promise of his debut year, and many are blaming his inability to fully recover from the knee injury he sustained in last year's playoffs. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan has apparently seen enough, as the team will start backup Kirk Cousins over Griffin for this Sunday's game against the Falcons in Atlanta -- and, very likely, for the remainder of the season. Griffin is still the Redskins' quarterback of the future, but this scenario isn't what he or the team expected when they drafted him with the No. 2 pick in 2012.
