Fitz could be cleared by Week 7, according to the report. But as the story said, he is far from assured of regaining his starting position as Washington's quarterback. Heinicke, a late-season revelation in 2020, continues to impress coaches and teammates and has a legitimate shot to keep the job if he continues to perform. There seems to be strong support from the coaches to keep Heinicke on the field when Fitz comes back, too. The team is eager to get him back, but it's more about depth, the story went on to say.
