"We're going to let Shane rest awhile. He's sort of banged up. We're going to see what these two can do. We need to see how Danny and Patrick can play this game. We're not set at quarterback."
"Shane could play if he had to, but he's still a little banged up," Spurrier
said. "We know what he can do. Now we need to find out what our other two

Wuerffel has seen action in a relief role in both of Washington's losses. In
those games, he has completed 7-of-11 passes for 71 yards, with two
interceptions. Ramsey has not played since the preseason.
Shane Matthews on his demotion: "Obviously, I'm not very happy. I could have
played if we'd had a game [this past Sunday]. But he wants to go in a
different direction, and it's out of my control. I just tried to play as
smart as I could to help this team stay in games and win them. It's
disappointing because you look at some of these guys throwing three and four
interceptions, and they're still playing. But I'm going to be supportive.
I'm a team guy. I'm going to do whatever I can to help Danny out."
Wuerffel has not started a regular season game since 1998, when he was with
the New Orleans Saints.
Matthews was named the NFC offensive player of the week after throwing three
