John Beck Being Named Washington Redskins' Starting Quarterback Confirmed By Multiple Reports

The news that John Beck will replace Rex Grossman as the Washington Redskins' starting quarterback for the team's game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday has been confirmed by multiple reports. ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to report on the story, and it has now been confirmed by several other reporters.

First, the news was confirmed by Mike Jones of the Washington Post. Then, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network did the same and added the following nugget.

Mike Shanahan notified his QBs early this morning that John Beck is the new starter. Did not tell his staff or any players til this AM. Many Skins players and coaches expected the move to Beck. Not a surprise.

That's interesting, especially in light of Santana Moss' recent comments backing Grossman. On Monday, Moss said the Redskins "can't just give up on [Grossman] after one game." It'll be interesting to see his reaction on Wednesday when the media talks to the players.
