MRI confirms hip subluxation

Fitzpatrick's MRI on Monday revealed a hip subluxation, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Per the report, Washington plans to place Fitzpatrick on injured reserve after an MRI confirmed his diagnosis, but it's not yet clear whether the issue will end his season. Taylor Heinicke will serve as the starting quarterback during Thursday's Week 2 matchup against the Giants and figures to remain the starter while the 38-year-old remains sidelined. Kyle Allen will be available as the primary backup, while the team added Kyle Shurmur to its practice squad Monday. Once Fitzpatrick officially is placed on injured reserve, the earliest he'll be able to return will be Week 5 against the Saints on Sunday, Oct. 10.
