For tonight at least, Rex Grossman is the Washington Redskins’ starting quarterback.
Redskins G.M. Bruce Allen said on ESPN 980 that Grossman will get the start for tonight’s preseason game against the Ravens.
The plan is for Grossman to play the first two series with the first-string offense, and then John Beck to play the next two series, still with the first-string offense on the field.
Beck is generally recognized as the favorite to win the starting job, but Redskins coach Mike Shanahan says he won’t announce who his starter is until “right before” the September 11 opener against the Giants.
