Jason Campbell keeps his job, for now

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen hinted at it early last night, and NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports it with certainty — Jason Campbell will remain the starting quarterback of the Washington Redskins.

The news comes after coach Jim Zorn initially suggested after Sunday’s loss that the benching of Campbell for Todd Collins was a one-time thing, and then explaining Monday that a decision had not been made for Week Seven.

And while Zorn said the decision would be his, Mort suggested that new play-caller Sherm Lewis preferred Campbell.

Whether Campbell is on a short leash remains to be seen, along with whether Zorn or Lewis would be the one to yank the starter out of the game.
