ASHBURN, Va. Robert Thomas Jersey . -- Mike Shanahan, still for now the coach of the Washington Redskins, made a surprising reversal Monday and said he might bench a "100 per cent" healthy Robert Griffin III for the rest of the season to keep the quarterback from getting hurt. Shanahan essentially declared it might be more beneficial for Griffin to get off-season snaps in May rather than game experience over the next three weeks. The coach, for the first time, then explicitly left open the possibility that he might not return next year, saying his future will be decided after he meets with owner Dan Snyder at the end of the season. Shanahans departure appears more likely than ever after the Redskins (3-10) were embarrassed 45-10 by Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, a fifth straight loss that ensures a third season of double-digit losses in the coachs four seasons in Washington. "You always want to come back. I love these guys," Shanahan said. "Whatll happen at the end of the season, well get a chance, Dan and I, to sit down and decide -- hell make the final decision on whats the best interest of the Washington Redskins. Ill give my opinion and what I think, and obviously hell make the final decision." Shanahan said he has a "good relationship" with Snyder and spoke with the owner on Monday. The coach didnt go into detail about the conversation other than to say it involved Griffin. "He asked me about my relationship with Robert," Shanahan said. "And I said I was his coach, his head football coach, and not necessarily his best friend, dont need to be his best friend. I want to make him the best quarterback possible." A team spokesman said Snyder was not available for comment. Nevertheless, Shanahan has increasingly appeared to be the odd man out in the triangle of owner, coach and quarterback. Shanahan and Griffin have publicly clashed this season, and Shanahan said he hasnt discussed the possible benching with Griffin and wont do so until after making a final decision on Wednesday. On Sunday, when asked if he had any doubts he would start the upcoming game against the Atlanta Falcons, Griffin replied: "No, thats not an issue." In discussing the reasons for sitting Griffin in favour of backup Kirk Cousins, Shanahan repeatedly pointed out that Griffin has been sacked 24 times in the last five games. He also noted that Griffin missed this years off-season practices while recovering from major knee surgery, a reason often cited for Griffins struggles a year after winning the NFLs offensive rookie of the year award. "Were talking about his health," Shanahan said. "I want to make sure hes healthy. I think thats the most important thing going into the off-season, that he has his first full off-season being healthy. And if he did play, and something happened to him, I think it would set our franchise back." Shanahan has previously insisted that Griffin would remain the starter if healthy because the quarterback needed as much regular season work as possible to develop an all-around game. Asked if Griffin is healthy now, Shanahan said: "I think hes 100 per cent. I think hes feeling very good." The tension was palpable throughout Shanahans news conference, which also included him debunking a report that he cleaned out his office in advance of Januarys playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks. "It would take me two minutes to clean out my office," Shanahan said. "Ive got two notebooks and Ive got an iPad. When I hear different things like that, I just shake my head." Such bizarre days have become standard fare for the Redskins under Snyder. The team is 104-133 in the regular season since he bought the team in 1999, and Shanahan is his seventh coach in 15 seasons. Shanahan is 24-37 in Washington. And, according to Shanahan, there are more bizarre days to come. "Fortunately I havent been in too many of these situations, and if you have, then youre not around very long," Shanahan said. "But I understand what goes on when you win the NFC East and all of sudden youve got three wins. It goes with the territory. I understand theres going to be a different story every day, and its not going to change over the next three weeks." Notes: RB Evan Royster will go on injured reserve with a high left ankle sprain. ... There was a rare moment of levity during Shanahans news conference when a Redskins intern stumbled to the floor while helping to pass out microphones. "OK, we got one on IR," Shanahan said with a chuckle. "Some guys will do anything to get on TV." Carter Hutton Jersey . Smiths former Atlanta teammates were glad to hang on for an ugly win.

On the ground where they last won the title, the Gunners took full advantage of leader Chelseas loss to Aston Villa on Saturday to close the gap to the leader. "It was a must-win game. We maintained the focus to not make the mistake that would cost us," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. He watched his side take the lead inside two minutes when midfielder Tomas Rosicky rifled in an unstoppable shot from the edge of the area. Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain should have doubled the visitors lead in the 15th when he raced clear on goal, but his attempted lob sailed well wide of goal of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris goal. Another swift counterattack by Arsenal eventually saw Oliver Giroud square the ball across goal in the 26th, but Oxlade-Chamberlains shot deflected wide. Tottenhams striker Emmanuel Adebayor was unable to divert his shot inside the far post following a right-wing cross from Townsend shortly before the half-hour mark. Oxlade-Chamberlain blazed high over the bar from the edge of the penalty area,, after Rosicky had rolled the ball into his path, having robbed Danny Rose in the 41st. Brayden Schenn Jersey. The hosts started the second half with real purpose, and should have equalized in the 46th through Nacer Chadli. However, he failed to convert from close range after goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny fumbled the ball in the area. Spurs continued to press forward and Chadli missed another opportunity in the 52nd. The Belgian international attempted an extravagant flick deep inside the penalty area following Andros Townsends right-wing cross. "Tottenham played very well. We had an early lead and we were juggling between protecting the lead and finishing the game off," Wenger said. That win lifts the Gunners into third place on 62 points, four adrift of league leader Chelsea, which it faces next Saturday. "Its a great result for us," Rosicky said. "I think it is a great race for the fans and for us the players. As Ive said many times, I think it will be until the last game of the season." Tottenham remains in fifth place, seven points adrift of the final Champions League berth with eight games remaining.
