Grossman's Ready For Preseason Opener

Posted Aug 10, 2011

Rex Grossman expects to play about two quarters vs. Pittsburgh on Friday night. He also discussed his recent comments about the Redskins contending for the NFC East crown.


Quarterback Rex Grossman expects to play about two quarters in the Redskins’ preseason opener vs. Pittsburgh on Friday night.

Grossman spoke with Larry Michael on “Redskins Nation” airing on Wednesday evening on Comcast SportsNet.

"This game is very important, not just because there's competition," Grossman said. "In this league, you want players to produce in games, so this is the first real test."

Given that Grossman has taken the bulk of reps in practice this week, it seems likely that he will be named the starter by head coach Mike Shanahan.

It remains uncertain if John Beck, Grossman’s competition for the Redskins’ starting job, will be available for the Steelers game.

Beck has been slowed in practice this week by a groin injury.

“I can’t say for sure at this time,” head coach Mike Shanahan said of Beck’s status. “We won’t play him unless he feels 100 percent.”

Beck said he believes the injury was progressing, but added that it was frustrating to watch critical 11-on-11 drills during practice.

“It’s tough, but I’m trying to be as smart as I can be [in terms of returning to practice],” Beck said. “I don’t want to let my competitiveness get in the way and then make a dumb decision, one that could cost me longer.”

Meantime, Grossman was answering questions on Wednesday about his comments on Comcast SportsNet this week in which he suggested the under-the-radar Redskins would be serious contenders to win the NFC East.

The comment drew traction on national media outlets, from ESPN Radio to Pro Football Talk.

“I wasn’t trying to make some profound statement,” Grossman said. “I just really believe in this team...It comes down to how you handle adversity and I really like the character of this team.”

Grossman later added that he believed the 2011 Redskins could be “every bit as good” as the 2006 Chicago Bears team he led to a berth in Super XLI.
