    Robert Griffin III will start at quarterback for the Redskins Saturday against the Eagles, coach Jay Gruden announced.

    "This is Robert's team right now," Gruden told reporters Monday. "From there, we'll take it one game at a time and make our judgments and conclusions after that."

    Griffin replaces Colt McCoy, who aggravated a neck injury on the opening series against the Giants Sunday. Griffin went on to complete 18-of-27 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown.

    This is the Redskins' fifth quarterback change of the season.

    "It's not what you want," Gruden said. "You want somebody to take the position and play and have success, obviously. I have nothing against all three. I think all three quarterbacks have a good future. I just want somebody to take the position and run with it, and hopefully we'll see something like that this week with Robert."
