Beck to Start Friday Night Against Colts

Quarterback John Beck will start Friday night’s preseason game against the Colts, head coach Mike Shanahan said on Tuesday.

With the Redskins expected to trade or release Donovan McNabb this offseason (McNabb was traded to the Minnesota Vikings), Beck operated this offseason and approached training camp as if he were the team’s starting quarterback.

Beck missed the preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a groin injury. That game was started by the re-signed Rex Grossman, who completed 19-of-26 attempts for 207 yards and a touchdown before he was replaced by free agent Kellen Clemens in the second ahlf.

Beck, who turns 30 this upcoming Sunday, has not started a regular season NFL game since 2007. Beck started preseason games with the Dolphins in 2008 and Baltimore Ravens in 2009.
