Redskins Expect To Start QB Case Keenum This Week


According to Ian Rapoport, the Redskins are planning to start QB Case Keenum this week against the Dolphins. 

Keenum has been dealing with a foot injury that kept him out of last week’s game. Assuming it doesn’t act up, he should be fine for Sunday, though. Colt McCoy will be the backup quarterback for Washington.

Keenum, 31, wound up signing on with the Texans as an undrafted free agent out of Houston back in 2013. He spent two years with the Texans before he was claimed off of waivers by the Rams.

Keenum later returned to the Texans before being traded back to the Rams for a 2016 seventh-round pick. The Rams used a first-round tender on Keenum that paid him $3.635 million for the 2016 season.

After spending a year with the Vikings, Keenum agreed to a two-year, $36 million contract that included $25 million guaranteed with the Broncos last year. However, the Broncos later traded him to the Redskins this past March. 

In 2019, Keenum has appeared in four games and completed 68.1 percent of his passes for 970 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions.
