Redskins Lose Quarterback to Broken Leg, Again, Leaving Mark Sanchez As Starter

McCoy expected to miss rest of season

Meaning, it will be Sanchez who likely sees the Giants on Sunday, though Gruden did not rule out McCoy, even after undergoing surgery Tuesday.

Never heard of him? McCoy is scheduled to undergo further testing Tuesday, but he's expected to be out for the rest of the season, Gruden said.

Since being drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008, Johnson has been a journeyman quarterback.

Kaepernick has been without a team since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017.

"There's not a lot of time to get a brand-new quarterback and system installed in a couple of days", Gruden said. "So he's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go a different direction". "It's very hard. Whoever the backup is, they have to have skill sets similar to Mark, that he can fit into the plays we're going to run vs. the Giants".

The Redskins signed Mark Sanchez in November and he is now the only QB on the roster.

Against the Eagles, the 32-year-old Sanchez compiled a passer rating of 53.7, going 13 for 21 for only 100 yards with one interception and one fumble that he managed to recover. McCoy hasn't been placed on injured reserve yet, and Gruden went as far as to say that he wouldn't, but with only four games left, the prospects of McCoy's 2018 Cinderella story playing out are not promising. He underwent surgery to fix his fibula Tuesday.

He has filed a grievance against National Football League team owners he claims conspired not to hire him because of his protests.

When he limped to the sideline, he was having trouble putting weight on his leg, and he eventually made his way into the Redskins locker room, where an x-ray revealed he had a broken bone.

Several owners, coaches and team executives have been called to testify, and the case is scheduled to go to trial.
