Case Keenum returns to practice

Quarterback Case Keenum started the first four games of the season for Washington, but the team is openly reconsidering their plans for the starting lineup heading into this Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

Keenum has not played well in either of the last two games and he was benched in favor of first-round pick Dwayne Haskins in last Sunday’s loss to the Giants. Keenum has also been dealing with a foot injury that kept him out of practice on Wednesday.

That foot injury was cited by head coach Jay Gruden as one of the issues that led to Keenum’s benching. Keenum said this week that it was no excuse for his play, however.

“I gotta make those throws whether I’m hurting or not,” Keenum said, via the team’s website. “Everybody plays hurt, and this league and my team counts on me to make those throws and those are game-changing throws that you want back.”

Keenum doesn’t feel his foot kept him from making those plays and it did not keep him from practicing on Thursday. Haskins and Colt McCoy also took part in the session, which gives Gruden a chance to see all three quarterback options before making his call about this weekend.

  1. It’s hard for me to fathom that we are maybe 3 or 4 throws away from having a different outlook on this season … but if this debacle gets Gruden and Allen out of here I’m all for it. So tired of the same old middle of the road team.

  2. Remember when he played for the Vikings and was good?

  3. Well, there’s always Alex Smith. Line him up in the shotgun and either hand it off or make quick throws without having to move. Can’t do any worse.

  4. People act like Case Keenums stats weren’t on point the first 2 games. Those first 2 losses were 100% on our defense not being able to make a single stop. Week 3 loss against the bears…well its the bears. Arguably the best defense in the whole league. Last week just looked like the whole team had given up. I am all for Case Keenum starting. Rest of the team needs to play too. It doesn’t all fall on the quarterback.

  5. Here are the Redskins top cap six contracts by average annual value:

    Alex Smith – 0 snaps
    Josh Norman – 120 passer rating when targeted
    Landon Collins – ok, but not exactly flashing
    Trent Williams – 0 snaps
    Ryan Kerrigan – ok, but not exactly flashing
    Jordan Reed – 0 snaps

    Snyder is the biggest problem. Its when businessmen buy these teams as an investment to generate income rather than with a love of the game and will to win that situations like Washington occur.

    The way the TV money is split they know they get huge money from those TV deal checks and then if they’re a bit under the cap too they laugh all the way to the bank even if their team is 0-16 (Haslam we’re looking at you). The TV contracts and revenue sharing are the worst thing to happen to the league.

    If the took even half that TV money and split it into 256 shares for 256 regular season games, each team winning each game getting the share for that game, it would force owners to put a competitive product on the field if they want the big money.
