Week 8 MNF Injury Report - Robert Griffin III QUESTIONABLE

Saturday, October 25, 2014, 5:00pm

Redskins
QUESTIONABLE
QB Robert Griffin (ankle), CB Tracy Porter (hamstring)

PROBABLE
DE Chris Baker (thigh), S Ryan Clark (ankle, shoulder), RB Alfred Morris (ankle), T Tyler Polumbus (knee), LB Perry Riley (knee), T Trent Williams (knee)

Cowboys
OUT
DE Jack Crawford (calf)

PROBABLE
WR Dez Bryant (shoulder), LB Bruce Carter (thigh), T Doug Free (foot), S Jakar Hamilton (not injury related), T Jermey Parnell (chest), QB Tony Romo (back), DE Anthony Spencer (knee, foot)

Fantasy Impact:

RGIII is questionable and was limited at practice all week. The team said they are preparing as of Colt McCoy is starting, but leaving open the possibility Griffin will play. Seems like a longshot, and owners shouldn't count on him. On top of those risks, the Cowboys defense has been playing well this year so it's not a great matchup for Washington on the road.

Also of note, Cowboys WR Dez Bryant and QB Tony Romo are considered probable, as is Washington RB Alfred Morris. All are expected to play and it's especially a great matchup for Bryant and Romo.

Cowboys WR Terrance Williams shining as Dez Bryant's sidekick

Star-Telegram - [Full Article]

Now that teams are focusing on the run and doubling Dez Bryant, Dallas is showcasing another reliable big-play threat on the outside in Terrance Williams.

Against New Orleans last week, Williams caught six passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns against one one-on-one coverage because the defense was doubling Bryant.

Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said teams that leave Williams open to focus on Bryant are playing right in their hands.

“I think it was certainly our plan. We knew it was going to happen and it’s happened throughout the course of NFL history,” Linehan said. “I’ve been around these great receivers and they command a lot of attention and I’ve told the second receiver, 'You’ve got the best job on the team; you’re going to get the one-on-ones.'"

Fantasy Impact:

Williams only saw 14 targets through the first three games, but was targeted seven times in Week 4 against the Saints. Tony Romo is feeling better, and that should allow him to spread the ball around to the open receiver. With the defense focused on stopping Bryant, Williams shined in Week 4.

ESPN - [Full Article]

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo isn’t ready to say he is 100 percent.

“I think I am getting close,” Romo said after the Cowboys’ 38-17 win against the New Orleans Saints.

Whatever the percentage is, Romo is feeling much better than he did in the first two weeks of the regular season. He has altered his practiced schedule the last two weeks, taking off Wednesday’s workouts to focus on strengthening his core and legs.

In the last two games Romo has completed 40 of 52 passes for 479 yards with five touchdowns and just one interception.

“I think it’s always going to be there. You’re going to have to constantly work on your back, but that doesn’t mean you can’t come back and be what you were,” Romo said. “I think that is part of being a great football player. That is what I’m trying to do and that is what I am going to have to do to be successful.”

Fantasy Impact:

For the second straight game, Romo’s legs were a big part of the story, too. On third and 5 from the New Orleans 49, Romo scrambled for a career-long 21-yard pickup. On the next play DeMarco Murray scored on a 28-yard run to give the Cowboys a 31-3 lead. Romo is starting to look like his old self from a fantasy standpoint. Outside of Seattle in Week 6, Romo's schedule is pretty favorable. The only thing holding him back is Murray's success in the running game, but even so, it seems like he's at least going to have some low-end QB1 value going forward.
