The Washington Commanders will be without Carson Wentz for at least a month, opening the door for Taylor Heinicke’s return to the starting lineup. Will the journeyman backup yield better results for the Burgundy and Gold offense against Green Bay and beyond? Could the switch to Heinicke be permanent?

Also inside the D.C. Sports Huddle presented by MGM National Harbor: Jim Irsay’s Tuesday remarks about Dan Snyder sent shockwaves through the NFL and put the Commanders owner on the defensive. Is this truly the beginning of the end of the Snyder era in Washington?

Huddle up with WTOP Senior Sports Director Dave Johnson, Sports Director George Wallace, Senior Content Producer Rob Woodfork and fellow sports anchor Dave Preston.
