Washington Redskins: John Beck to start Friday

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - John Beck will start the second preseason game for the Washington Redskins.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Tuesday that Beck will get the nod for Friday's game at Indianapolis.

Beck is battling Rex Grossman for the starting job. Grossman started last week against Pittsburgh and completed 19 of 26 passes for 207 yards and one touchdown in the first half.

Beck sat out the game with a strained groin but has returned to take part in all drills this week at practice.
