I talked this afternoon with coach Sonny Dykes, who said Thursday’s practice, where Jared Goff and Zach Kline got the majority of the quarterback reps, should not suggest that it’s now a two-man race for the job.
He said this was business as usual, where one or two candidates get the lion’s share of the snaps on a daily rotating basis. He said Kline is likely to get most reps with the first unit on Friday, and Austin Hinder will move into that position on Saturday.
The coaching staff then will evaluate the work of all three and begin to try to narrow the field, perhaps initially to two quarterbacks.
When I asked if he could have a starter named by Sunday, Dykes said, “I’d be surprised.”
Stay tuned. I will have more tonight, following practice.
