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.
Fractured right fibula for Colt McCoy. Done for the year.
Jay Gruden said it was heartbreaking and he'd use the word "devastating" but gotta go win a game.
