Laws handed Grant the gloves in preference to Jensen as the Clarets earned a credible draw away to QPR on Saturday.
Despite admitting it was one of the toughest decisions of his managerial career at Turf Moor, Laws said: "No spot in this place is sacred and what epitomises that is the battle between the two goalkeepers.
"They only have one spot and they can't look at left-back, right-back or centre-half.
"Both of them are able keepers who can easily perform in this division, so it's a tough one and I am sure Brian is very downhearted because he wants to play.
"Lee has been very patient so if I have to mix it up by giving him a few games to keep him going then I think it's the right thing to do and the morale of the team will benefit from it."
