Jay Gruden spoke to the media following today’s practice. He has not made a decision of the starting QB for Sunday’s game, but he’s close. All three QBs practiced today, but Gruden didn’t count their snaps. He won’t be handing over play calling to new Offensive Coordinator Kevin O’Connell, insisting that it is a collaborative effort between Bill Callahan, O’Connell, Matt Cavanaugh, and himself.

That’s not a decision but says Colt McCoy had a good day.
Jay Gruden did not name a starting QB. Wants to see how McCoy and Keenum respond after a day of work. When we were at the field McCoy was the first QB in some of the drills.— John Keim (@john_keim) October 3, 2019
