Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered a hip injury during the Washington Soccer Team’s 20-16 defeat against Chargers on Sunday. Apparently this injury kept him out of action for Week 2 and beyond.
Fitzpatrick does not play on “Thursday Night Ball” against the Giants. Instead, they missed at least three games after being posted on IR, on Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. However, the good news is that there is no “indication” that the injury – known as hip flexion – is going to end in the season.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Fitzpatrick will be removed in 6-8 weeks for the injury.

Taylor Heinicke time.

Taylor Heinicke starts in the absence of Fitzpatrick. Heinicke went 11-of-15 passing 122 yards against Fitzpatrick against the Giants. He also ran three times in 17 yards.
Heinicke is best known for his role in assisting injured Alex Smith on wild cards last year. Heinicke threw 306 yards, a touchdown and concussion just for the third time in his NFL career, and he was the first in more than two decades. She also ran 46 yards and an unforgettable running TD in the race.
Washington were unable to beat the winner of the Super Bowl Buccaneers, but Heinicke helped keep the game close to the second half.

In-depth chart of Washington Football Team QB
Fitzpatrick’s injury now shakes Washington’s chart. Here is the new look the team has.
1. Taylor Heinicke
Heinicke, 28, is an expert, having just started two careers since joining the league in 2015. He has a 0-2 record and has achieved 62.5% of his career at 895 yards, four TDs and four stages in his career. He also chased 118 yards out of 18 carriers.
2. Kyle Allen
Allen, 25, has been in the NFL since 2018. He signed with the Panthers as a free agent from Houston and is in his fourth season under the direction of Ron Rivera. He has a 7-10 starting history and has managed 4,198 yards in passing, 23 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in his career.
Allen will support Heinicke. However, he was ahead of Heinicke on the deep chart last season before injuring his leg at the end of the fourth season. If Heinicke fights, Allen can see something.
3. Kyle Shurmur
Shurmur, 24, has not played for a season in the NFL’s regular season. He spent time with the Chiefs (2019) and the Bengals (2020) in his career. Washington signed him to take part in the game after Fitzpatrick’s injury.
Shurmur is the son of Broncos corrupt Pat Pat Shurmur, who was the Browns head coach from 2011 to 2012 with the Giants from 2018 to 2019.
