Redskins HC Jay Gruden wouldn’t rule out Cousins keeping the job for the remainder of the season. “Crazy things can happen,” Gruden said of Cousins remaining the starter.
Griffin sustained a dislocated ankle a few weeks ago and is expected to be back around Week 10.
Last week, Cousins completed 30-of-48 passes for 427 yards, three touchdowns and an interception during Week 3’s loss to the Eagles.
The offense has looked much better with Cousins under center. However, this is a small sample size and Washington’s schedule gets much harder after Week 4 when they take on the Seahawks and Cardinals in back-to-back weeks, so we should have a much better idea of Cousins chances of retaining the job for the rest of the season.
