"Will we play Kyle [Allen]? Probably. But we're going to stick with Taylor for now," said Rivera in the tweet. Rivera went on to say via the tweet, it's not "an indictment" on Heinicke, but more about wanting to see Allen play. Either way, it's not good news for Heinicke because there isn't a lot Allen is going to offer at this point.
WAS QB Kyle Allen - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 15 at Philadelphia Eagles
The Washington QB situation is a bit of a mess heading into Week 15. Taylor Heinicke tested positive for COVID, and won't play this week which leaves Kyle Allen. But Allen is already on the COVID list, and will need to be cleared ahead of Tuesday's matchup. If Allen can't go, then the team has Kyle Shurmur who could start. The team also signed veteran Garrett Gilbert on Friday just in case. Reporters seemed conflicted on who would start between Shurmur or Gilbert. Overall, we'd probably just avoid this situation in Week 15.
