It's been a pretty rough week for Washington Redskins quarterback Case Keenum, to put it mildly. After an abysmal performance at home against the Chicago Bears in primetime, he now has an injury to worry about.

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, Keenum did not participate in practice today due to a foot injury. However, according to Kareem Copeland of the Washington Post, Keenum is expected to play on Sunday against the New York Giants.

Washington acquired Keenum in a trade with the Denver Broncos this past offseason. He beat out rookie Dwayne Haskins for the starting job and has started all of Washington's games so far.

But despite putting up some decent numbers, Keenum has been unable to lead Washington to a win. The team is 0-3 to start the season, and people are already clamoring for Haskins to take over.

Keenum's opening drive this past Monday was the start of a terrible night for him. He threw a pick-six to Chicago Bears safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, the first of three interceptions and two lost fumbles he would suffer.

Though Keenum should be good to play in Week 4, one has to wonder if Sunday is a must-win for him.

Will Keenum and Washington be able to turn things around against the Giants this weekend?
