Commanders Reportedly Initiating Quarterback Change — Again
The quarterback carousel of the Washington Commanders is still spinning.
According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Commanders will turn to Taylor Heinicke to start Sunday's regular season finale against the Dallas Cowboys.
Heinicke was benched in the second half of the team's Week 16 loss to San Francisco.
Carson Wentz, who started the season as Washington's QB1, replaced Henick against the Niners and then started last weekend's game against Cleveland.
He was ineffective however and lost to the Commander Browns before being eliminated from playoff contention later that day when the Green Bay Packers defeated Minnesota.
Fowler also revealed that fifth-round rookie quarterback Sam Howell would play against Dallas.
This will be the NFL debut of the UNC product.
We're not quite sure what's been the reasoning behind the Commanders' quarterback decisions the past few weeks.
There's a chance the team itself doesn't know.
Anyway, Heinicke will start in Week 18 against Dallas. Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday
