The Washington Redskins are desperately in need of some quarterback help. However, one quarterback is already off their potential lost.
Head Coach Jay Gruden said the team is not interested in Colin Kaepernick. He has been out of the league for the past several seasons.
Kaepernick has been banished from the league after protesting the national anthem.
Gruden said that Kaepernick was considered. However, he admitted that the team is going in a different direction.
The Redskins only have one healthy quarterback. That is Mark Sanchez, who signed with the team prior to Thanksgiving.
He replaced Colt McCoy, who suffered a season-ending injury on Monday night. McCoy suffered a broken leg in the second quarter of Monday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
He reportedly stayed in the game for two plays after breaking his leg. Sanchez came in and finished the game.
McCoy replaces Alex Smith, who suffered a season-ending injury in November.
McCoy went 4 for 4 for 50 yards before leaving the game on Monday night.
The 32-year-old Hobbs, New Mexico native made four appearances this season, including two starts. He was 0-2 as a starter. He has gone 34 of 54 for 372 yards. He also had three touchdowns and three interceptions.
The 34-year-old Seattle, Washington native was 6-4 in 10 starts this season. Smith made 11 appearances and went 205 of 328 for 2,180 yards. He also had 10 touchdowns and five interceptions.
The 31-year-old Milwaukee, Wisconsin native has been out of the NFL since the 2016 season. He went 1-10 in 11 starts. He made 12 appearances and went 196 of 331 for 2,241 yards. He had 16 touchdowns and four inceptions.
