Robert Griffin III was back under center Sunday for the Redskins after Colt McCoy left with a neck injury.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who was benched three weeks ago, returned to the lineup Sunday afternoon after starter Colt McCoy aggravated a neck injury.

McCoy was taken to the locker room after his first series in Sunday’s game against the Giants. McCoy, who was questionable because of an aggravated nerve in his neck, was hit hard at the end of a scramble on Washington’s opening possession.

Afterward, he spent most of the Giants’ ensuing possession speaking with trainers and doctors and was eventually taken to the locker room.

That put Griffin into the game for the first time since a loss at San Francisco on Nov. 22. Griffin was benched after that game, raising numerous questions about his future with the Redskins.

McCoy completed 4-of-7 passes for 39 yards and ran two times for 24 yards on the opening drive, resulting in a field goal. McCoy later returned to the field, but Griffin remained in the game at the start of the second quarter.
