Shanahan May Sit RG3

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Mike Shanahan is still the coach of the Washington Redskins, but Robert Griffin III might not be the starting quarterback this week.

Shanahan said Monday that he was thinking about sitting Griffin for the rest of the season because of concern that the quarterback could be injured.

Shanahan points out Griffin has been sacked 24 times in five games, and that two of the Redskins' three remaining games will be played on artificial turf, including Sunday at Atlanta.

It's a change of pace of Shanahan's previous stance that Griffin needed as many game snaps as possible to improve.

Shanahan no longer spoke as if it's a given that he'll be coaching the Redskins next season. He says owner Dan Snyder will make that decision at the end of the season.
