ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins have made a quarterback change, announcing Wednesday that John Beck will start Sunday at Carolina.

The 30-year-old Beck replaces Rex Grossman, who was benched after throwing four interceptions in Sunday's 20-13 loss to Philadelphia.

Beck, who learned of his promotion on Tuesday, led an 80-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter against the Eagles, scoring on a two-yard run.

Grossman was 9-of-22 for 143 yards before leaving and Beck, who lost the battle to be starter in the preseason, went 8-of-15 for 117 yards.

Beck has made four NFL starts, all with Miami during the 2007 season.
