Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden has not necessarily given rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins a ringing endorsement.
That could now change. Keenum missed Wednesday’s practice with a foot injury and is questionable to play Week 4.
Even with veteran Colt McCoy returning to practice, Gruden noted that Haskins would get the start if Keenum can’t go.
Likely coaching for his future in D.C. this weekend, we’re sure that Gruden doesn’t want to rely on a rookie quarterback to save his job. It’s why he’s likely sticking with Keenum.
However, the embattled head man might not have a choice. Washington heads into Week 4 with an 0-3 record and on the brink of irrelevance.
