ASHBURN, Va. - Now its all about waiting for RG3.The Washington Redskins are on a familiar path, on pace for their eighth last-place NFC East finish in 11 years, and coach Jay Gruden sees failures system-wide as he goes about trying to get these guys out of a rut of losing.Staying status quo is not good enough, obviously, the first-year coach said Monday. So theres some things were going to have to address, whether its changing the way were practicing, the way were meeting, the plays that were calling, the defences that were calling, something.An adjustment or two might produce some wins, but, at 1-5 — including three consecutive double-digit losses — the playoffs are probably no longer realistic. Gruden, looking tired after a late-night flight home from a 30-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, mistakenly said the team was 1-6 and corrected himself by saying he losing track of the won-loss record.If I had one area, where I could say, Well, we need to improve right here, I think wed have a great understanding of what we need to do, Gruden said. But right now its a little bit of everything, Its a little smorgasbord of things that we have to work on and improve on. Its the quarterback, its the running game, its the pass protection, its the wideouts and their blocking, its the defensive line pass rush, its the coverage, its the linebackers, its the special teams.With so far to go, the Redskins best path to relevance in this seasons NFL world will be the return of Robert Griffin III. Once he recovers from a dislocated left ankle, Griffin essentially will get a handful of games to prove that he truly is a franchise quarterback worthy of a long-term commitment. If he struggles — or gets hurt again — Washington might decide not to pick up the fifth-year option on his contract and could be faced with starting over again at the games most important position.Gruden said Griffin is scheduled to begin working in individual drills at practice this week and could start taking regular practice snaps as early as next week. Griffin likely wont return until the Nov. 2 game against Minnesota at the earliest, and a more likely scenario has him back for the Nov. 16 game against Tampa Bay following the bye week.Griffins return could have been an afterthought if Kirk Cousins were playing well. Given his best chance yet to prove he should have a starting job in the NFL, Cousins had a big game in relief after Griffin was hurt in Week 2 but has since has been a turnover machine who doesnt come through in the clutch.Cousins led the NFL in interceptions with eight after Sundays games — even though he didnt play in Week 1. He had three in the fourth quarter against the Cardinals, and Gruden said Cousins could have avoided all three. Cousins fourth-quarter passer rating for the season is a substandard 67.3.Even more glaring is Cousins rating on third downs. Its 39.8. No other quarterback in the league with enough attempts to qualify was below 60.Nevertheless, Gruden said Monday said Cousins will continue to start, ruling out a switch to backup Colt McCoy for Sundays game against the Tennessee Titans.Its a change that might be more logical to make if quarterback were the only position with issues. The Redskins, for instance, finished Sundays game without their top three cornerbacks from the start of the season because of injuries.Well-paid linebacker Brian Orakpo is banged up, isnt getting sacks and dropped a possible game-changing interception against the Cardinals. The defence has only four takeaways all season, and the teams turnover differential sits at minus-9.The running game continues to struggle. Alfred Morris on Sunday had two dubious firsts in his career: No first downs rushing, and no rushes of 10-plus yards.We need more from everybody, Gruden said. Were not getting enough from anybody.Notes: Amerson (concussion) was the main injury concern from Sundays game. Hell have to be cleared through the leagues concussion protocol in order to play next week against the Tennessee Titans. ... Gruden said the two players on the Physically Unable to Perform List — DE Stephen Bowen and WR Leonard Hankerson — will return to practice Wednesday, the first day they are eligible.___AP NFL websites: and Joseph White on Twitter: Devin Mesoraco Jersey . The two-time Olympic halfpipe gold medallist informed ESPN on Monday he plans to compete in Apsen, Colo. Juan Lagares Jersey . - The Raiders have released guard Mike Brisiel after two disappointing seasons in Oakland. Messis 75th-minute goal answered some of the criticism the clubs all-time leading scorer had received for his lacklustre performances in the teams recent losses in the league, Champions League and Copa del Rey final. Darryl Strawberry Jersey .m. on Friday. Granger was acquired from the Indiana Pacers last Thursday for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen, but never played a minute for Philadelphia. The 76ers also received a 2015 second-round draft pick in the deal. Mookie Wilson Jersey . Its been two seasons in one for both parties and neither will look back on the first 18 games fondly. "I think I took the fall for a lot of things," said Gay, reflecting on his short time in Toronto ahead of Wednesdays game against his former club.LOS ANGELES -- David Legwands second goal of the game with 3:56 left lifted the Nashville Predators to a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night. Legwand and Shea Weber scored power-play goals in the first period, Eric Nystrom also scored, and Patric Hornqvist had three assists. Carter Hutton made 35 saves in his fourth straight start since Pekka Rinne went on the injured list because of an infection in his surgically repaired hip. Anze Kopitar, Dustin Brown and Mike Richards scored for the Kings, and Jonathan Quick faced only 17 shots. Centre Jeff Carter, who had a hat trick against Nashville the last time the Predators visited Los Angeles on March 4, was placed on the injured list Saturday with a lower-body injury sustained in Wednesdays overtime victory against San Jose. Trailing 3-1 after two periods despite outshooting Nashville 24-11, the Kings got closer at 9:41 of the third when Brown threw the puck toward the net from the left boards, and it found its way inside the post. Richards tied it for the Kings on the rebound of a wrist shot by Tyler during a power play at 11:18, but Legwand restored the Predators lead for good. Legwand converted a rebound of Mattias Ekholms long slap shot after Paul Gaustad won a faceoff deep in the Kings zone. Los Angeles outshot Nashville 14-6 in the first, but trailed 2-1 after the Predators connected on their two power plays of the period. Rich Clune, claimed off waivers from the Kings last January, received a misconduct for instigating a fight with Daniel Carcillo at 7:28 of the period after Carcillos hard open-ice hit against defenceman Roman Josi. It was Josis second game back after missing 10 with a cconcussion.dddddddddddd Carcillo received an additional penalty for kneeing, so the teams continued skating 5-on-5 until about 3 minutes later when Kings defenceman Slava Voynov was sent off for tripping Nystrom. The Predators capitalized on the ensuing power play as Legwand sent a wrist shot from the slot past the screened Quick. Los Angeles forward Kyle Clifford got a boarding penalty after his check on Craig Smith, and Weber connected with 53 seconds left in the first. The Kings closed within 2-1 just 16 seconds later when Kopitar put in a rebound of Jake Muzzins long wrist shot. Nashville restored its two-goal lead 8:41 into the second period. Los Angeles defenceman Drew Doughty had the puck in the left corner and tried a backhanded clearing pass around the boards, but the puck struck referee Mike Hasenfratz. Hornqvist then set up Nystrom in front of the net. NOTES: Los Angeles C Jarret Stoll, who won all five faceoffs he took in the first period, played only a minute in the second period before leaving with an undisclosed injury. ... Los Angeles C Tyler Toffoli and RW Linden Vey were called up from Manchester (AHL). D Keaton Ellerby was claimed off waivers by Winnipeg. ... Nashville C Matt Hendricks missed the game because of an upper-body injury sustained in a collision with Phoenixs Derek Morris on Thursday. ... Los Angeles and Nashville began the day as the top two NHL teams in faceoff percentage, with the Kings winning 55.9 per cent and the Predators winning 55.7 per cent. ... The Kings broke a franchise record with their 76th consecutive sellout -- including post-season. The old mark occurred during the early 1990s, when Wayne Gretzky played for them. ' ' '
