On Sunday, FOX’s Jay Glazer reported that Redskins backup quarterback Rex Grossman split first-team reps with starter Donovan McNabb in practice last week, and that McNabb would be on a short leash against the Bucs.
In the wake of a one-point loss at home to Tampa, the leash may be even shorter.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports there’s a chance Grossman will start on Sunday at Dallas. Though Kelli Johnson of CSN Washington cites an unnamed team source who says, “I don’t think that’s true,” we’ve also heard that Grossman could be getting the start but that, at this point, nothing is definite.
It could be that the two men share the reps in practice again, and that coach Mike Shanahan decides on a starter based on how they both work this week.
Meanwhile, we hope McNabb didn’t spend that $40 million guaranteed all in one place.
UPDATE: Is it just us, or does the photo of Grossman and McNabb look like the beach picture of the Kruger family with Costanza lurking in the background?
