Redskins QB Colt McCoy practices for Washington, Case Keenum does not

Colt McCoy, Case Keenum, Redskins

The Washington Redskins don’t seem to have a clear-cut plan for what they are going to do at quarterback for their game against the New England Patriots this Sunday, but it’s looking like their plan won’t involve Case Keenum.

Keenum, who was pulled from the Redskins’ Week 4 loss to the New York Giants due to a foot injury, did not practice on Wednesday and was wearing a protective boot. However, fellow veteran signal-caller Colt McCoy threw alongside of Dwayne Haskins, via Julie Donaldson of NBC Sports Washington.

McCoy underwent multiple surgeries during the offseason on a broken leg he suffered last year, but now, he seems healthy enough to get back on to the field.

It seems like McCoy will end up being the starter for Washington this weekend in spite of the fact that Haskins relieved Keenum against the Giants.

The Redskins were heavily criticized for throwing Haskins into the pray this past Sunday, as the rookie looked unprepared while completing just nine of his 17 passes for 107 yards and three interceptions in what ended up being a 24-3 defeat.

For that reason, it does not seem all that probable that Washington will start Haskins against a fierce Patriots defense that has only allowed one offensive touchdown all season.

McCoy has been a member of the Redskins since 2014 and has made six starts for the club, throwing for 1,557 yards, eight touchdowns and six picks.

The 33-year-old began his NFL career with the Cleveland Browns, where he played three seasons. He then spent one year with the San Francisco 49ers before joining Washington.
