Cousins out tonight, Grossman to start

Rex Grossman AP

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins admitted this week it would be pushing it to play in the preseason, and he was right.

The Redskins just announced that Cousins would be inactive for today’s game against the Bills after spraining his foot last week. The injury isn’t believed to be anything that would compromise his availability for the regular season.

That leaves Rex Grossman to start this afternoon against the Bills, since Robert Griffin III is being held out of the preseason as well.

Since Pat White is the only other quarterback on the roster, there’s a high chance for him to get significant action as well.

    _____________________
    I’m not so sure about that, Fly. With Coach Marrone and their offseason acquisitions, there’s a new attitude in Buffalo this year.

    They may not burn down the house quite yet, but this team is not the same old same old Bills. Something is changing.

    The Bills will always be irrelevant period. I forget Buffalol has a team if they don’t do something boneheaded or play the REDSKINS. #SuperbowlXXVISitDown

    Old RG III and out!

    You don’t need a quarterback against the Bungling Bills. They have the WORST defense in the entire NFL. They points they gave up last year set an NFL record. Heck you could pull an old lady out of the stands and put her at quarterback against them and you would still win the game by 20 points. The Bills stink that bad. They finished last in the division for the past 15 years.

    I bet RGIII gets more screentime than everybody else gets playing time….

    I would have to assume sexy rexy or pat white would win the starting job for the Jets.
