Dwayne Haskins has been named the Redskins' starting quarterback for the rest of the season, interim coach Bill Callahan announced on Monday.

Case Keenum will be Haskins's backup, with Colt McCoy listed as the No. 3 QB.

Keenum started seven out of Washington's first eight games this season, and McCoy also earned a start before Haskins received the nod in Week 9 against the Bills.

Haskins went 15-for-22 with 144 yards in the 24–9 loss to Buffalo. The Redskins were on a bye in Week 10 when rumors started to swirl that Haskins would become the team's starter.

Washington selected Haskins with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2019 draft. Through three games this season, he's completed 27-of-44 passes with 284 yards, zero touchdowns and four interceptions. He's been sacked eight times.

The Redskins are 1–8 on the season and will host the Jets on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
