Cousins Will Get The Start Sunday

Posted Dec 15, 2012

The Redskins announced tonight that rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins will start Sunday's game on the road against the Cleveland Browns.

The Redskins announced tonight that rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins will start tomorrow's game on the road against the Cleveland Browns.

Cousins earns his first career start in place of Robert Griffin III, who was limited in practice all week with a Grade 1 sprain of the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) in his right knee.

Cousins has never started a game in the NFL, but has appeared in two games this season, throwing seven-for-11 for 137 yards and two touchdowns, with two interceptions.

In last Sunday's victory over the Baltimore Ravens, Cousins led the game-tying drive after Griffin III was removed with injury, scoring the two-point conversion on a quarterback draw.

The Redskins were expected to have doctors evaluate Griffin III's knee Saturday and make a decision based on who would start. 

Head coach Mike Shanahan noted the importance of letting the starting quarterback mentally prepare by letting him know before game time.

With Cousins named the starter, it is unclear how many quarterbacks the Redskins will keep active tomorrow, and who will be his primary backup.

Griffin III could be active even though he does not start, while Rex Grossman is another possibility, after being inactive for all 13 contests this season.
