ASHBURN (WAVY) – In an announcement that should come as no surprise to Redskins Nation, Jay Gruden named Case Keenum as Washington’s week-one starting quarterback against the Philadalphia Eagles.

While rookie Dwayne Haskins has displayed natural ability and a strong arm, Gruden believes Keenum’s experience was the deciding factor.

“Case [Keenum] has come in here and picked up the offense extremely well, had great confidence and command over the team,” said Gruden. “At the end of the day, I think we have great confidence that Case can lead us to a win against Philadelphia.”
