New final exam: Heinicke pauses school to QB for Washington

FILE - In this Nov. 23, 2013, file photo, Old Dominion quarterback Taylor Heinicke (14) looks to pass against North Carolina during the first half of an NCAA college football game in Chapel Hill, N.C. Taylor Heinicke was taking advanced math classes online at Old Dominion University when Washington called him to be "quarantine quarterback." Until a relief appearance Sunday, Dec. 27, 2020, he hadn't played an NFL game since 2018 and was an XFL backup, and now Heinicke could start or be one Alex Smith injury away in the season finale at Philadelphia with the NFC East on the line.
