Any speculation about Dwayne Haskins making his first NFL start this weekend may have been put to rest. On Thursday, Case Keenum returned to practice for the Redskins.
Keenum had a rough outing on Monday night against the Chicago Bears. He threw three interceptions and lost two fumbles.
Despite missing practice on Wednesday for Washington, the journeyman quarterback sounds ready to go this weekend.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Redskins welcomed back Keenum at practice. All signs point to him playing against the Giants on Sunday.
Keenum was in a walking boot earlier this week, but it's pretty evident that it was for precautionary reasons.
Washington eventually has to hand the starting job to Haskins. However, the team should wait until it believes the former Ohio State star is ready for the challenge.
The Redskins could also have Colt McCoy back this weekend. He'll most likely be the backup quarterback for the immediate future.
Another loss for Washington could in theory end its season. Staring down an 0-4 record would be tough to overcome.
Jay Gruden has hinted at making a change at quarterback in the near future. It's fair to say this Sunday is a must-win game for Keenum.
