John Beck Practices Sunday, Should Play Friday In Second Preseason Game

Washington Redskins quarterback John Beck, who did not play in the team's preseason opener with the Pittsburgh Steelers due to a groin injury, was back on the practice field Sunday afternoon, fully participating in 11 on 11 drills. Via Sky Kerstein of 106.7 the Fan:

I would have to imagine Beck felt some pressure to return to the practice field as soon as possible, given Rex Grossman's strong performance in the 16-7 victory over the Steelers. Grossman was 19 of 26 for 207 yards and a touchdown, and looked extremely comfortable running Kyle Shanahan's offense.

The Redskins have yet to announce which quarterback, Beck or Grossman, would start Friday night's game against the Indianapolis Colts.
