Week 3 Essential NFL Practice News & Notes for Thursday
Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (ankle) was ruled out for Week 3. Kirk Cousins gets the start. In four previous starts, he averaged 269 yards with 1.5 TD and 1.5 INT, which equates to QB17-type numbers. He’s a Sneaky Start this week against a shaky Eagles defense.
Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) took limited practice reps Wednesday. Austin Davis is likely to get another start. He has a good matchup against the Cowboys, but the Rams may not throw enough for it to matter.
Cardinals QB Carson Palmer (right shoulder) took limited practice reps Wednesday. It looks like Drew Stanton may get the start in a tough matchup against the 49ers. Michael Floyd and Larry Fitzgerald are not attractive options with Stanton under center.
