The Redskins will start rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins for their Week 11 matchup with the New York Jets following their upcoming bye, according to an NFL Network report.

Haskins made his first career start Sunday, throwing for 144 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in a 24-9 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He was starting in place of the injured Case Keenum, who missed the game due to a concussion.
Interim head coach Bill Callahan wouldn’t commit to Haskins as the team’s permanent starter following Sunday’s game, and told NBC Sports’ JP Finlay that “we're going to take our time and take a look at everything” before making a decision by Monday, Nov. 11.
“We'll look at the quarterback situation and personnel later in the week,” Callahan said. “But we are going to get through the schematics, talk about the personnel within the schematics as we're evaluating, and then really have a good discussion on personnel later in the week. That's really the focus for our staff and also our team this week.”
Haskins commented on an Instagram post minutes after the NFL Network report surfaced.
The Redskins haven’t scored a touchdown in three straight games, a franchise record. Haskins will look to jumpstart the struggling offense against a Jets team that’s allowing 26.4 points per game—the third-worst mark in the AFC.
