http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/13549307/kirk-cousins-washington-redskins-named-week-1-starting-qb The Washington Redskins have named Kirk Cousins as their starting quarterback for their regular-season opener, team sources told ESPN's Dianna Russini. The Redskins' coaching staff informed players on Monday morning that Cousins will start against the Miami Dolphins in Week 1, sources told Russini. Redskins coach Jay Gruden is expected to address the media later Monday after the team's practice. The Redskins' decision to start Cousins comes amid turmoil surrounding quarterback Robert Griffin III, who missed Saturday's preseason game because of concussion symptoms. Some high-ranking Redskins officials and coaches want to part ways with Griffin but are meeting resistance from the team's ownership, team and league sources told ESPN on Sunday. The Redskins even have discussed trading Griffin, according to sources.
