RG III inactive as Washington's 3rd quarterback
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was inactive, just like last week, but the difference is that he was coming off a concussion for the opener, while he's healthy enough to play against the Rams.
He lost his starting job to Kirk Cousins during the preseason; now he is down to No. 3 on the depth chart, behind backup Colt McCoy.
Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley, coming off left knee surgery, practiced this week and was thought to have a chance to make his NFL debut on Sunday, but he was inactive.
