Keenum will start Thursday's preseason contest against the Bengals, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

With Colt McCoy again ruled out for exhibition action due to lingering effects from his broken right fibula, Keenum is closing in on securing the starting quarterback gig for Week 1, according to Rick Snider of The Washington Post. Keenum didn't exactly light it up in the first exhibition last week, completing four of nine passes for 60 yards and one touchdown. Nonetheless, Keenum's veteran status appears to be more favorable in coach Jay Gruden's mind than trotting out 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins to begin the season.
