Taylor Heinicke will remain Washington Commanders' starting QB for Week 11

Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera called Taylor Heinicke the beginning quarterback versus the Houston Texans in Week 11.

While talking to the media on Wednesday, Rivera stated that Carson Wentz has actually been cleared to toss, however Heinicke will maintain his beginning area in the meantime.

“We haven’t designated him for return yet to practice,” Rivera stated of Wentz, who fractured his finger in Week 6 versus the Chicago Bears, which unlocked for Heinicke to begin. “He was working on the side, well, actually, he was working down on the field with the training staff today, but again, he wasn’t designated for return, so we will start Taylor this week.”

Heinicke has actually led the Commanders to 3 wins, consisting of beating the Green Bay Packers and handing the Philadelphia Eagles their very first loss on Monday night. He’s gone 75-of-121 for 840 backyards, 5 goals and 4 interceptions in 4 video games.

Rivera kept in mind how Heinicke’s success assists eliminate a sense of seriousness to get Wentz back on the field.

“We have time. That’s the really good thing that it is on our side,” he stated. “He’s done some good things and we’ll see how it happens this week. To me, it’s part of having to make a decision. You’ve got to be realistic, you’ve got to watch and you’ve got to see. And that’s what we’ve been doing, we’ve been paying attention to it. We’ve been paying attention to not just an individual as much as it affects the unit and the team. So having the situation is a pretty good one. It’s a good problem to have.”

Heinicke stated that he does not feel the pressure to show himself as the starter.

“It’s one of those things where hey, coach told me I was up this week, so just doing everything I can to prepare for Houston and try and go get a win,” he informed press reporters Wednesday. “Team’s playing really well right now, I think what, we’ve got seven more games, so hopefully we can. just keep this thing rolling and see what happens.”

Heinicke has actually established as a group gamer and fan favorite.

After the win over the Packers, he began a custom of purchasing a set of Air Jordan tennis shoes in the colorway of his challenger for each win he belongs of. This week, he bought Metallic Green Air Jordan fours to celebrate the upset over the Eagles.

He commemorated with his colleagues on the plane house from Philadelphia on Monday, using their chains a la Kirk Cousins and consuming some beer.

“Honestly, I was just hanging out in my seat, enjoying the win and next thing you know, a lot of guys start throwing their chains on me,” he stated, “so I wasn’t going to stop them. It was fun.”
