Coach Mike Shanahan told his quarterbacks Wednesday morning that John Beck will start Sunday on the road against the Carolina Panthers.
Shanahan did not reveal his decision to any of his coaches or players until Wednesday morning. Only his son, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, was aware of the final decision before the quarterbacks were called in.
The Redskins held an 8 a.m. ET team meeting and the players are now aware that Beck will receive starting reps at practice beginning Wednesday.
