Jay Gruden unsure who Redskins’ starting quarterback will be for Week 5

first_img“Right now I’m going to continue to evaluate Case’s progress with his foot, obviously Dwayne, and Colt with his leg. We come back Wednesday morning. We’ll have a practice. We’ll see where they’re at,” Gruden said.Before Keenum left the game, he completed 6 of 11 passes for 37 yards, no touchdowns and an interception. Haskins didn’t fare much better, completing 9 of 17 passes for 107 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions.”I think Dwayne came in there at a time of the game when we still had a lot of hope and I was hoping for a spark. I think his initial drive was good — he had a nice scramble for a good first down … and then in the second half I think there were a lot of things we had problems with,” Gruden said. “We weren’t in sync for whatever reason.”McCoy hasn’t been in a game since he broke his leg last season. However, he has resumed practice and Gruden indicated he could be well enough to start against New England if he fares better in practice than Keenum and Haskins. The Redskins will host the Patriots on Sunday, but it’s unclear who the starting quarterback will be.After Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins’ disastrous outings in Week 4, Jay Gruden said he’s stepping back and evaluating all of his quarterbacks, which also includes Colt McCoy.
