Football Team's Kyle Shurmur: Backing up Garrett Gilbert
Washington elevated Shurmur from its practice squad ahead of Tuesday's game against the Eagles.
Shurmur has yet to take his first NFL regular-season snaps, but he'll at least dress as the Football Team's backup quarterback for the Week 15 contest after neither Taylor Heinicke (illness) nor Kyle Allen (illness) were cleared to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday. Though Shurmur has been in the Washington organization since September, the Football Team will turn to the more experienced Garrett Gilbert to make the spot start in place of Heinicke, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post. Gilbert was just signed off the Patriots' practice squad Friday, so if he struggles early on against the Eagles, Washington could be compelled to give him the quick hook in favor of Shurmur....

Kyle Shurmur: Could see first NFL action
Shurmur and Garrett Gilbert could be options to start at quarterback in Tuesday's game against Philadelphia with both Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
Shurmur has been on Washington's practice squad throughout the year, while Gilbert was with the Patriots' practice squad before signing with Washington on Friday. It sounds like Gilbert's NFL experience may win out over Shurmur's familiarity with the playbook, and there's also perhaps some chance of either Heinicke or Allen being cleared by Tuesday. Allen was placed on the COVID list Wednesday, with Heinicke then joining him two days later.... See More ... See Less

Kyle Shurmur: Signing on with Broncos
Shurmur signed with Denver on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Shurmur's most recent NFL experience comes from his time with Kansas City's practice squad, but now he'll join a team that Sunday became the first in 55 years to start a non-QB under center, per the Elias Sports Bureau. A rash of COVID-19 disqualifications to Denver's QB room left practice squad call-up -- and recent wide receiver -- Kendall Hinton as the starting option Week 12 against New Orleans. Shurmur could possibly be thrust into action this upcoming Sunday in Kansas City, but starter Drew Lock recently tested negative for the virus after being considered a high-risk close contact to Jeff Driskel (who tested positive for COVID last week). Broncos offensive coordinator, Pat Shurmur, is Kyle's father.... See More ... See Less
