WASHINGTON - With a repeated, not-so-subtle use of the word intent, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden launched another spate of suspense Monday concerning Robert Griffin III, this time over whether the quarterback would keep the starting job for next weeks game.Asked several different ways whether Griffin will start against the Indianapolis Colts, Gruden hedged each time, citing the need to review the struggles of the passing game before making a decision.Right now, we have every intent for Robert, Gruden said. But well look at the tape and make our evaluations here shortly.Gruden wasnt as hard on Griffin as a week earlier, but the facts speak for themselves. The Redskins (3-8) are 0-3 since Griffin returned from an ankle injury and have scored only one touchdown in each of the last two games. He is 4-14 as a starter since the start of the 2013 season.Following a conservative game plan after a terrible outing the week before, Griffin completed 11 of 19 passes for 106 yards and was sacked five times in Sundays 17-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He has been sacked 16 times in his last three games, more than Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy were sacked in their six starts combined. Third downs continue to be a problem: The Redskins are 1 for 41 when its third-and-10-or-more this season.We cant attribute it all to Robert, Gruden said. He is the quarterback, though, so well have to look at every avenue and figure out where we can improve.The first-year coach might have to resolve the dilemma of playing to win the next game vs. playing for the future of the franchise. McCoy, who had won two straight games before Griffin returned, might give the Redskins their best chance to beat the Colts, but theres the argument that Griffin needs to keep playing to prove whether he can operate something akin to a conventional NFL passing game.We have a 24-year old kid who has not had a lot of these concepts thrown at him, Gruden said. And youd think we got it all sorted out, but he hasnt seen these concepts against different coverages all the time. Hes still in a growing process, he really is. He wasnt perfect in the game, theres some things he couldve done a lot better, but theres some things our left tackle couldve done better, our centre, our right guard, our wide receivers. Everybody has a little hand in the mess in the passing game yesterday.That said, Gruden kept opening the possibility that a change at quarterback might be necessary.We have some issues, we just have to hone in on them and ... come up with a plan thats conducive to winning with the quarterback that we feel good about moving forward, Gruden said. To have 100 yards or 80 yards passing is unheard of this day and age with the receivers we have, and we have to figure out something.Its fair to say Griffin received a disproportionate share of the blame for some of the earlier losses because the entire team wasnt playing well. On Sunday, most of it the issues were his.The Redskins had the elements for an upset. The defence forced three turnovers and allowed only 17 points despite running out of cornerbacks. The special teams won the field position game, largely because of an impressive day from punter Tress Way. Alfred Morris ran for 100 yards for the first time this season.That left the focus on Griffin and the passing game.It didnt help that rookie Morgan Moses was making his first NFL start at left tackle — he was directly responsible for two sacks — but it got to the point that speedster DeSean Jackson was returning punts in part because Jackson wasnt seeing the ball much on offence.At least, unlike last week, Griffins postgame remarks left little wiggle room for controversy or misinterpretation. He played it mostly straight, saying he needs to play better and find ways to make those big plays happen, no matter whats going on.But its not 100 per cent certain hell get another chance next week.If we think that somebody else is better suited to help us get a victory against Indianapolis, well make that decision, said Gruden, who then took note of the time. Right now, today, at 3:15, we feel that Roberts that guy.Notes: LB Adam Hayward (right knee fracture) will have surgery and was placed on injured reserve. ... CB Tracy Porter is expected to be sidelined several weeks with an AC joint separation in his right shoulder.___AP NFL websites: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Joseph White on Twitter: http://twitter.com/JGWhiteAP Wholesale Puma Shoes Free Shipping .
