Washington plans on starting Colt McCoy at quarterback instead of Robert Griffin III in Week 13.

While Griffin is not a part of Washington's plan for Sunday's game, he still appears to be a significant part of their long-term plan, per another source.

Washington hired head coach Jay Gruden in large part for his stellar work with quarterbacks, and the team is convinced coaching, cash and patience can help turn Griffin back into the player that won the Heisman and then the Offensive Rookie of the Year.
