Rams coach Jeff Fisher: Redskins have more issues than coin toss
Asked about the coin toss before Sunday's game against Washington, St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the Redskins "have more issues than the coin toss," according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Dispatch.
Fisher sent out six players the Rams acquired with the draft picks obtained in the 2012 Robert Griffin III trade with Washington for the coin toss. Some felt it was a jab at the Redskins, but when asked on Monday, Fisher said, "No, not at all. We're not like that. We don't do that."
St. Louis went on to win the game 24-0, dropping Washington to 3-10 on the season.
After losing the starting job to Colt McCoy, Griffin entered the game with two minutes remaining after McCoy left with a neck strain. Griffin was sacked on his second play, but finished 3 of 4 for 33 yards.
On Monday, Washington coach Jay Gruden told reporters Griffin will start next Sunday vs. the New York Giants if McCoy is unable to play due to the injury.
