Redskins QB Case Keenum expected to start in Week 6
The Washington Redskins’ season so far has been nothing short of a debacle. After firing their head coach Jay Gruden just hours after their loss to New England, interim head coach Bill Callahan has decided to go back to the team’s first option at quarterback Case Keenum.
Sources: The #Redskins are expecting to start QB Case Keenum this week, assuming his foot injury allows him. So Colt McCoy back to the bench.

The carousel of signal-callers that Washington has thrown out there has only amplified the dysfunction that has become synonymous with the franchise since Daniel Snyder took over at the start of the century.
Other than his Week 1 performance, in the games he has played Case Keenum hasn’t looked like the guy, rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins did not look ready to take on NFL defenses just yet, and Colt McCoy was put into an unfair spot to make his first start of the season.
For a franchise that was able to win three championships in less than a decade in the ’80s and early ’90s, the last 20 years have looked unrecognizable. We all know that Keenum is not a quarterback you can rely on, but at this point, who else do you turn to?
Redskins fans are hoping that a new era is on the precipice, a desire they have been waiting 20 years to be fulfilled. There is, however, a silver lining as Washington heads down to Miami to play a game they are actually favored in as the team will look to get their first win of the season.
Keenum will look to have a solid game in his comeback and will try his best to give Washington fans a glimmer of hope in what has been a very dark season.
