RGIII Will Be Deactivated For The Season
Earlier we learned that the Mike Shanahan was benching RGIII in favor of Kirk Cousins but now the Washington Post has learned that he will be sat down for the rest of the season:
UPDATE: Robert Griffin III expected to be deactivated for rest of season, with Rex Grossman taking over as backup QB. (via @washingtonpost)

So maybe back when Donovan McNabb offered that advice to Griffin he should have listened? This really is playing out exactly like it did back when McNabb was benched by Shanahan. This move is still strange by Shanahan though. Why protect your “franchise QB” like he said when he explained it to them team, in a dome but not in the horrible conditions last week?
