RG3 out, KC1 in. A Redskins source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter that Kirk Cousins -- not Robert Griffin III -- will start Sunday's game against the Browns. The team has been informed of the decision. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status/280134067742195712 Confirmation also came from FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, who yesterday reported that Cousins received all of the first-team reps.

If Heckert is gone, that will be a major mistake.
