The Washington Redskins are looking for an answer at quarterback, and head coach Jay Gruden admitted Wednesday that the team doesn't yet have a plan at the position ahead of Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

"We don't have one right now," said Gruden, according to Zack Cox of NESN.

Case Keenum started the first four games but was benched in favor of rookie Dwayne Haskins in the opening half of last week's blowout loss to the New York Giants.

Keenum had a five-turnover game in Week 3 and threw an early interception against the Giants. However, the switch to the first-round pick did little to change Washington's fortunes, as Haskins tossed three interceptions of his own.

The winless Redskins have a third option in Colt McCoy, who appeared in three games last season before suffering a leg injury.

McCoy returned to full practice this week after multiple setbacks in his rehabilitation, and he's apparently in the mix to start against the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The former Texas standout's chances to start appeared to improve after he took part in Wednesday practice while Keenum was seen wearing a walking boot.

According to Rapoport, Gruden has "supreme confidence" in McCoy but said during his press conference that a decision between the three pivots might not come until game day.

Regardless of who gets the nod, Gruden emphasized that the entire offense needs to step up.

"If we don't have good protection and we can't get separation, Tom Brady wouldn't have any success here," he said, according to Cox.
