ASHBURN — Following Dwayne Haskins’ first career start Sunday, interim coach Bill Callahan declined to name a starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins’ next game two weeks from now against the New York Jets.

Callahan said he would announce a decision on Nov. 11, the next time media will have access to the team at Redskin Park due to the bye week.

“We, and I, haven’t decided anything at this juncture yet,” Callahan said. “So I’m gonna take my time on that and look at a lot of different things, because we’ve got some time. And we’ve got time, this bye week, to go back and look at a lot of different things.”

Callahan added he wants to use the Week 10 bye week to evaluate film before making a decision, but gave little more detail than that.

Haskins went 15-for-22 for 144 yards on Sunday in a 24-9 loss to the Buffalo Bills. It was his first start after getting into the second half in Weeks 4 and 8 when starter Case Keenum left with injuries.

Keenum couldn’t play in Week 9 as he continued to recover from a concussion suffered in Week 8, leaving Haskins to start.

After the game, Callahan said he was pleased with how “efficient” Haskins was in his first start.
