Colt McCoy is expected to be the No. 2 quarterback for the Redskins this season behind Kirk Cousins, but he would only have minimal Fantasy value if he played in 2016. Last year, McCoy played behind Cousins and had 128 passing yards and one touchdown in limited action. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
McCoy has agreed to a three-year deal to remain with Washington, the Washington Post reports. With the franchise having parted ways with Robert Griffin, the team has quickly moved to ensure stability at the top of the QB depth chart, by franchising starter Kirk Cousins and securing the services of McCoy to remain his backup.
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.
