Grossman set to start Week 1 for Redskins

UPDATE: Shanahan confirmed Monday that he has named Grossman his starter.

Rex Grossman will be the Redskins’ starting quarterback in Week 1, according to team sources.

Grossman had been battling all training camp with John Beck, who missed time due to injury and also had the lockout working against him.

Coach Mike Shanahan informed the quarterbacks of his decision over the weekend, according to the sources.

Grossman will face the Giants to open the season, and the situation will be re-assessed through the year. Despite more playing time in the Redskins’ system, Grossman has been prone to erratic play throughout his career, and Shanahan has spoken highly of Beck.
