Ron Rivera Reportedly Makes Decision On Starting Quarterback


The Washington Football Team has reportedly made a decision on the team’s starting quarterback for the Week 2 game.

Washington is set to play the New York Giants on Thursday night. The Football Team will be without starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who suffered a hip injury in the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

With Fitzpatrick out, many are calling for the Football Team to sign a veteran quarterback, a la Cam Newton. However, it doesn’t sound like that will be happening.

According to ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler, the Washington Football Team will be starting Taylor Heinicke.

“Taylor Heinicke is starting at QB for the Washington Football Team on Thursday night vs the Giants, per sources. No official determination on IR for Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) but he’ll be declared out for this game. Kyle Allen will be the No. 2,” he reports.

Heinicke played well in backup duty on Sunday. It appears Rivera and Co. will be moving forward with him.

Washington and New York are set to play on Thursday night.

The game will kick off at 8:20 p.m. E.T.
