HC Jay Gruden said the following about his Week 5 QB:
“I think I’ll figure that out, especially when I find out the true status of our quarterbacks that are banged up a little bit,” Gruden said, in reference to Case Keenum‘s foot and Colt McCoy‘s leg. “Obviously Colt coming back from his leg injury, if he’s 100 percent ready to go. Case, how he’s doing with his foot — he was in a boot after the game, precautionary reason. We’ll see where they are. And then talking to Dwayne Haskins, seeing his progress. I’ll make that determination. I think it will depend on the decision I make and then how that person performs on Thursday and Friday.”
Gruden said his decision has nothing to do with playing the Patriots this week. We reported yesterday that Gruden apparently loves McCoy and he could have the edge in Week 5. Despite what Gruden said, it seems hard to believe he would throw the rookie Haskins out there against the Pats good defense.
