Robert Griffin III was just 11-of-19 for 106 yards with a lost fumble on Sunday.
Ashburn, VA (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Washington Redskins will bench Robert Griffin III and start Colt McCoy at quarterback for Sunday's upcoming game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to a report by NFL.com.
Griffin has been sacked 17 times in three games since returning from an ankle injury and was just 11-of-19 for 106 yards with a lost fumble in Sunday's loss at San Francisco.
Griffin still appears to be a significant part of Washington's future plans. The team must decide during the offseason whether they want to exercise an option to extend his contract through 2016.

The uncomfortable exchange came during McCoy's weekly appearance with Reese last Monday and highlighted the frustration Shady has been feeling a year after piling up 1,607 yards on 5.1 yards per carry with nine touchdowns for Philadelphia.
