CBS Sports' Dan Brugler believes QB Tommy Rees is a "real contender" to beat out QB Colt McCoy for the third QB roster spot, and is a UDFA to watch for the Redskins.

"While BYU WR Cody Hoffman was probably the most talented UDFA that signed with Washington, the wide receiver depth chart is so deep that Rees gets the nod," Brugler wrote. Robert Griffin is locked in as the starter for the Redskins with Kirk Cousins backing up Griffin. Brugler mentions that the Notre Dame QB is a "real contender" to beat out Colt McCoy for the No. 3 QB for the Redskins.

Notre Dame senior QB Tommy Rees threw for 319 yards on 27 of 47 passing attempts in Saturday's 29-16 Pinstripe Bowl victory over Rutgers.

"Turnover Tommy" threw no interceptions in his final collegiate game. He didn't torch Rutgers' defense, but he moved a close-to-mistake-free offense that more than doubled the Knights' total yards (494-236). Rees accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game and will now try to impress pro scouts. "He's going to keep chasing that football dream," Kelly said. "But I told him he's got a bright future as a graduate assistant for Brian Kelly anytime."

Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Rees led the Fighting Irish to an 8-4 regular season and the Pinstripe Bowl after re-inheriting the starting quarterback job from the suspended Everett Golson. He threw for 2,983 yards with a 53.7% completion percentage and a 27/13 TD/INT ratio in 2013. He is not much of an NFL prospect.

Notre Dame senior QB Tommy Rees (neck) told the media that he will start on Saturday against Air Force.

When asked Wednesday if he would start this weekend, Reed said, "Absolutely." The senior quarterback suffered a strained neck in last weekend's victory over USC, and backup Andrew Hendrix struggled in relief. "Going out there and practicing, it was good to be back out there with the guys," Rees said. "I feel good right now and I'm going to continue to feel better throughout the week."

Rees is considered day-to-day with a strained neck, but the injury must not be very severe. Andrew Hendrix replaced Rees and did not complete a pass on four attempts.

"I live in the present, and in the present, we have Tommy Rees," Kelly said. "We have Tommy Rees, who is an established player, and he will be our starter.

Notre Dame junior Tommy Rees will start at QB against BYU on Saturday, in place of sophomore Everett Golson.

Rees has done well in the late game role, which led head coach Brian Kelly to call him the "closer". Golson suffered a concussion last week but was cleared to practice and play Saturday. However, coupled with the sophomore's turnovers and inexperience, it isn't overly surprising that Rees is drawing the start.

Notre Dame announced that junior QB Tommy Rees has been suspended for the team's season opener.

The Irish are scheduled to face off against Navy on September 1 in Dublin, Ireland. The suspension, which was handed down by head coach Brian Kelly, likely stems from Rees' offseason misdemeanor charges that resulted from a bar fight in South Bend. Sophomore Everett Golson and junior Andrew Hendrix are expected to compete for the starting spot until Rees returns. Junior linebacker Carlo Calabrese was also suspended for the first game for his involvement in the incident.

Public intoxication and battery to an officer, which is a felony, are among the charges against Rees. The quarterback, who will be a junior during the 2012 season, was in a battle this spring for the starting job with Andrew Hendrix, Everett Golson and Gunner Kiel.

The sophomore's touchdown throws of 34 and 19 yards helped lead the Irish to the win at FedEx Field. Rees' 296 yards are tied for the second-most of the season, and the performance pushes his season totals to 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
