Colt McCoy's on-field return is imminent

"And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,"
Colossians 3:23

On Wednesday, Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden tried to put out the public fires about Robert Griffin III’s Sunday press conference and his own comments in his Monday presser.

Late on Wednesday afternoon, Gruden sat down with’s Albert Breer and he had some more pointed things to say.

"He's auditioned long enough," said Gruden of Griffin. "Clock's ticking. He's gotta play. We'll see. ... We want Robert to excel, we really do.

“But the last two games, it hasn't been very good, anywhere. We gotta play better around him. And the biggest thing for us as play-callers, and for him, we just have to come together and jell with plays he's comfortable with. That takes time. But we don't have a lot of time."

Although Gruden said again today that there are no plans to make a change under center, he told Breer that McCoy’s two game fill-in should serve to put pressure on the third-year signal caller.

"We have a guy behind him that played pretty well, and people are looking, 'OK, he's 2-0,' " Gruden said, of Colt McCoy. "There's always pressure on the quarterback to perform. And if you don't perform, like any other position, somebody's behind you pushing you.”
