Redskins QB Johnson steps in against Jaguars

New Washington Redskins quarterback Josh Johnson threw his first NFL pass since 2011 last week, and on Sunday against the Jaguars in Jacksonville, he will make his first NFL start also since 2011.

The Redskins (6-7) have lost four in a row as injuries have ravaged the team, especially at the quarterback position. Alex Smith and Colt McCoy suffered season-ending injuries, and Mark Sanchez was ineffective, so Johnson will become the fourth quarterback to start a game this season for the Redskins, who desperately need a win to stay in contention for a playoff berth.

Johnson performed well in relief of Sanchez last week, completing 11 of 16 passes for 195 yards and a touchdown and running for an additional 45 yards in the 40-16 loss to the New York Giants.
