Colt McCoy Out For Year

McCoy breaks right fibula in second quarter against the Eagles

In what was supposed to be Colt McCoy’s second chance as a starter ends in devastating heartbreak.

Colt was flushed from the pocket and tried to make the best of the situation.  As he was going down, his right ankle whipped around Malcolm Jenkins’ leg.  McCoy got up limping but finished out the drive before being taken to the locker room.  X-rays showed what the Redskins had feared, a broken right fibula.  Mark Sanchez proceeded to come in and will be the starter for the rest of the year.

This is the third week in a row that a Redskins player had left a stadium in an ambulance.  Alex Smith two weeks ago and Trent Williams last week in Dallas with a rib issue.

The Redskins will now be forced to bring in additional quarterbacks to look at and sign before their match-up against New York on December 9th.  Jordan Reed is the Redskins lone emergency quarterback with Trey Quinn being injured.

More to come as the week evolves.
