The Washington Redskins saw a once-encouraging contingency plan at quarterback fall apart a bit when interim starter Kirk Cousins left the team’s 24-13 preseason victory over the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night with what is being described as a “mid-foot sprain.”
The timeline for Cousins’s recovery wasn’t immediately known but for the time being Washington is down to just one healthy experienced quarterback — 11th-year veteran Rex Grossman — as Robert Griffin III’s quest for a Week 1 return remains uncertain.
Cousins left FedEx Field on crutches and in a walking boot. X-ray results came back negative but the quarterback still will have an MRI exam Tuesday morning to provide a clearer indication of the extent of the injury.
“They feel like it’s mild right now so that’s a good sign” Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said before later adding “He’ll get an MRI tomorrow. But at least it was a good sign with the doctors today.”

Redskins vs Steelers: Observations From Preseason Week 2 The Redskins won their second preseason contest of the season, however it came with a cost.

With the 2013 NFL regular season only a few weeks away I don’t believe there’s a question that Robert Griffin III will be ready to go for the Redskins Monday night opener against the Eagles. The biggest concern is if he can actually stay healthy for an entire 16-game regular season. I honestly have my doubts. While Griffin is a better quarterback than Michael Vick, their...
