Interim head coach Bill Callahan said Monday that rookie Dwayne Haskins isn't a candidate for the starting job ahead of Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network.
Haskins, the 15th overall pick in the 2019 draft, has played just a single half through five weeks. He replaced the struggling Keenum against the New York Giants in Week 4 and threw three interceptions.
While Callahan won't turn to Haskins immediately, he wants the young signal-caller to get playing time before the end of the season.
"He will be in the lineup at some point," Callahan said, according to Les Carpenter of The Washington Post.
Keenum, who started the first four games before his turnover issues forced the switch to Haskins, missed Week 5 due to a foot injury.
McCoy then started Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots but struggled to ignite Washington's offense. He averaged just 4.4 yards per pass, threw no touchdowns to one interception, and produced a passer rating of 60.6.
