Rex Grossman May Start versus Cowboys?

Chris Mortensen has been on this Rex Grossman news most of the season (some right, some wrong), but he recently just reported:

Chris Mortensen on @ESPN: "There's a chance" Rex Grossman starts Sunday. Said #Redskins considering resting McNabb because he's not 100%. [@granthpaulsen]

What makes this interesting? McNabb was on ESPN today saying he's 100%. 

McNabb says "nothing is wrong." with body. Asked if he is healthy? "Yes indeed, a hundred percent....on offense: "Im very comfortable with the offense. About 100%" after Kevin [Sheehan] asked him about saying earlier in year 70% [@russellmania09]

What a frickin mess. I really hate this kind of stuff. To me, it sounds like Shanahan knows what he has with McNabb and now he wants to see what he has with Grossman. Either way, why is their no communication or who is leaking this stuff? Perhaps there's a chance this is ESPN fluff, but I doubt it.
