Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. All Robert Griffin-related storylines will have to wait, as McCoy logged full practices throughout the week, leaving little question as to his availability for Sunday's game against the Eagles. With the way Kirk Cousins is playing, it won't be surprising if McCoy sees the field before mid-season
Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy (foot) practiced in full Wednesday, The Washington Post reports. After watching Monday's practice from the sideline due to a cut on his left foot, McCoy was able to handle the entire slate of drills Wednesday. However, the foot was encased in a heavy bandage, which places some question over his ability to suit up Sunday against the Eagles. An absence would put Robert Griffin in the backup quarterback role.
Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy missed Monday's practice due to a cut on his foot, the Washington Post reports. McCoy watched the proceedings from the sideline Monday, during which Robert Griffin directed the second team offense. Washington doesn't have to release the nature of McCoy's injury until Wednesday's injury report, but head coach Jay Gruden should have more information when it's released.
Heading into training camp, Colt McCoy remains confident that he can be a starter in the NFL but also realizes the Redskins' QB role belongs to Robert Griffin III, per The Washington Post. McCoy, who signed a one-year deal with Washington after starting one game last season, said he decided to return to the Redskins based on the coaching staff and not his chances to play this year. Even though Griffin is the incumbent, McCoy believes he could step in and contribute. "I don't think I would be continuing to play if I didn't believe in my heart that I could start every week in this league," he said.
The Redskins are re-signing quarterback Colt McCoy, leaving them with the same trio of quarterbacks as last year, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. McCoy played well in five games last season, completing 71.1 percent of his throws for 1.057 yards and four touchdowns with three interceptions. He and Kirk Cousins again will be ready to step in if Robert Griffin III gets hurt or is ineffective.
