Keenum on track to be Redskins' Week 1 starting QB

It looks like Colt McCoy can be removed from the competition for Washington's starting quarterback job.

McCoy broke his right fibula during a December 3 game against the Eagles last season, and complications during his recovery, which included three surgeries, forced him to miss all offseason team activities, plus the team's first two preseason games. Though in his first season in Washington, Keenum's experience is valuable for the team going forward.

On Monday, ahead of the Redskins third preseason game of the year against the Atlanta Falcons, coach Jay Gruden offered the media an aside about the two players, and where they now stand in their journey back to the field - be it a lengthy timetable or something that is expected to happen quickly.

Security forces had originally gone to the site to investigate a hoax device, and were searching the area when the device detonated in Wattlebridge.

"Might not be the end of camp", Gruden said, via Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch. So they had to go back in a little bit. Hopefully we get him right.

Keenum is expected to get the opening-game nod against the Philadelphia Eagles over rookie first-round pick Dwayne Haskins.

There's nothing totally unexpected about this and, realistically, the Redskins weren't looking to breeze to a division crown or anything. This, of course, would be a good problem for Washington.
