Case Keenum might still start if he clears protocol

Washington rookie Dwayne Haskins has practiced all week with the starters, but that doesn’t mean he’s starting this week against the Bills.

Via Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post, interim coach Bill Callahan said that veteran quarterback Case Keenum didn’t need to practice this week to return to the starting job.

Keenum remains in the concussion protocol, and would need to be cleared by an independent neurologist before he can play.

“Concussion protocols are day-to-day,” Callahan said after practice Thursday. “So we’ll have to see what’s going on tomorrow morning and see where Case is at and make a decision from there tomorrow and maybe Saturday make another decision based on where he’s at. We’re just gathering all the information we can right now.”

Haskins has been spotty in two appearances this year, but this is the first time he’s had a full week of preparation with the ones. And it might not matter, if Keenum is declared well.

  1. I was such a fan of this franchise until Snyder took over. It is such a bumbling and dysfunctional franchise now. Why would any player want to play here. I miss the days of the Cooke family owning this franchise.

  2. If Haskins-Robbins starts against Buffalo, the Numbskins could have a historically bad game that would rival when a decade ago another man without talent started for them and played his only game and started the Numbskins laughing stock of the NFL persona. I forget his name (and don’t care enough to even look it up).

    Haskins-Robbins could have six or more interceptions because he has no talent and has no ability to find an open receiver. More flavors of interceptions will be on public display. And then we’ll be told he isn’t ready to play in the NFL.

    Sadly, he’ll NEVER be ready to start in the NFL. He was entirely a gimmick that was yet another wasted draft pick by the Allen brat.
