On Sunday Washington Commanders will start Taylor Heinicke again at quarterback. Carson Wentz is still not practicing with the team.
With Heinicke under center the Commanders have gone 3-1. Their next matchup is a road game against the Houston Texans.
“We have time,” Rivera said, via ESPN. “[Heinicke] has done some good things and we’ll see what happens this week. It’s not just about the individual as much as [how] it affects the team. Having this situation is a pretty good one; it’s a good problem to have.”
Wentz has been out of action since breaking his right finger in a win over the Chicago Bears on Oct. 13 and was subsequently placed on injured reserve.
The Commanders are also unsure if defensive end Chase Young will play. Young has been out of action with a torn ACL.
