Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy out for season with broken right leg

Colt Mc Coy

After halftime, ESPN reporter Lisa Salters said McCoy had a fractured right fibula. He planted his right leg into the turf and the lower part of the leg and ankle viciously whipped into safety Malcolm Jenkins' knee.

According to my score-keeping, McCoy stayed in the game for two more plays, and completed both his passes for 5 and 10 yards to set up a 44-yard field goal, AFTER he broke his leg.

Salters said McCoy tried to move on the sideline, including dropbacks, and he told the trainers he couldn't do it.

Things couldn't have started better for Sanchez.

Sanchez, signed two weeks ago, played for the first time since January 1, 2017, when he was with Dallas.

It was no joking matter for Washington.

Who knew deep in the season that mark sanchez would be playing meaningful football for a team that is trying to win the NFC East?

The Redskins are 2-1 in the NFC East and 6-3 against the conference overall, but they have obviously lost a starting quarterback and lost two in a row and three of their last four.
