Quarterbacks Get the Eyeballs on Day 1 of Redskins Training Camp

Alex Smith rolled onto the field, still wearing a cast after breaking his leg in November

On the first day of practice for the Redskins 2019 training camp, all eyes will be on the quarterbacks. Or all eyes should be on the quarterbacks anyway.

It will be the first time the coaching staff sees Colt McCoy, Case Keenum, and rookie Dwayne Haskins on the practice field at the same time, and it will be the first of a many-day battle to see which passer gets the starting job.

"I feel confident in every one of our quarterbacks," head coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday. "They have a skill set that is beneficial to help this team win games. It comes down to which one will give us the best chance to win."

And there was a special appearance by another quarterback: Alex Smith, who broke his fibula and tibia and was in a leg brace for eight months, rolled onto the field with his leg still in a cast.
