Redskins QB Mark Sanchez was benched in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Redskins. He finished 6 of 14 for 38 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs, leading Washington to 0 points. QB Josh Johnson has replaced Sanchez. The 'Skins are a mess.

Redskins QB Colt McCoy injured his lower right leg in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Eagles. He headed back to the locker room for x-rays and is questionable to return. QB Mark Sanchez, signed just 2 weeks ago, has replaced McCoy.

Update: McCoy has a fractured right fibula and will miss the rest of the season, according to ESPN's Lisa Salters.

The Bears have signed QB Mark Sanchez to a 1-year deal. The 30-year-old has settled in as an NFL backup, which is what he'll be in Chicago after the Bears handed QB Mike Glennon $18.5 million guaranteed. With Glennon, Sanchez, David Fales and Connor Shaw all under contract, it seems unlikely that Chicago will draft a QB with the 3rd overall pick next month.

The Cowboys have decided to get QB Tony Romo some action in Sunday's finale against the Eagles, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It'll be his 1st regular season appearance since Thanksgiving 2015. QBs Dak Prescott and Mark Sanchez are also expected to play vs. Philly, per Schefter, but the exact rotation remains unclear. It's obviously a situation to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups

The Cowboys don't plan on playing QB Tony Romo in Sunday's finale vs. the Eagles. "We don’t feel like we can gain anything from him running a few plays," owner Jerry Jones said. "Not worth the risk.” It's still unclear whether QB Dak Prescott will play the entire game or if Dallas will use 3rd QB Mark Sanchez.

NFL Network reports that the Broncos have released QB Mark Sanchez and that the Cowboys are already expected to sign him. Sanchez lost the Denver starting competition to Trevor Siemian after arriving from Philly via trade. In Dallas he'd back up QB Dak Prescott while Tony Romo's out with his back injury. Romo's return might leave Sanchez looking for work again in a couple of months.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian has won the starting job, according to ESPN's Jeff Legwold. That certainly looked like the case when HC Gary Kubiak announced that Siemian would start the 3rd preseason game, but this report is more concrete. It's a surprising outcome considering Siemian's resume. He's a former 7th-round pick who completed just 58.9% of his passes with 27 TDs and 24 INTs in 4 years at Northwestern. Siemian has yet to attempt a regular-season NFL pass and has averaged just 6.3 yards per attempt with 0 TDs and 1 INT in 2 preseason contests this year. He's nowhere near the fantasy radar and makes WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders scary picks. We're expecting rookie QB Paxton Lynch to take over at some point this year. QB Mark Sanchez isn't even guaranteed a roster spot.

The Broncos announced that QB Trevor Siemian will start the team's 3rd preseason game. That suggests he's the favorite for the Week 1 starting job, as team's use the 3rd exhibition as a regular-season dress rehearsal. It's surprising news considering Siemian's inexperience and mediocre play so far this preseason. He's completed 65.4% of his passes but averaged just 6.3 yards per with 0 TDs and 1 INT. QB Mark Sanchez, meanwhile has posted a 66.7% completion rate, 7.3 yards per attempt, 1 TD and 1 INT. He's also lost 2 fumbles. This remains a situation to avoid in fantasy football drafts. Siemian under center would be even scarier than Sanchez for WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

Broncos HC Gary Kubiak announced that QB Trevor Siemian will start the team's 2nd preseason game on Saturday. It's the clearest sign yet that Denver's starting job remains open for competition. Mark Sanchez was OK as the starter in the 1st exhibition, completing 10 of 13 passes for 99 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. Siemian went 7-of-12 for 88 yards with the 2nd team. Sanchez's experience still makes him the favorite for the Week 1 call, but we'll see how both guys perform this weekend.

Broncos QB Mark Sanchez is expected to start Thursday's preseason opener, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Sanchez will play the 1st quarter, Trevor Siemian the 2nd and Paxton Lynch the 3rd and 4th. Sanchez appears to have a slight edge in the race for the Week 1 starting job but isn't a lock to hold on to it. None of Denver's QBs are worth drafting in fantasy football right now.

Time to stop snickering at the mentions of QB Trevor Siemian as a potential starter in Denver. The Broncos released their 1st depth chart Monday, which included Siemian listed as co-starter with QB Mark Sanchez. “Nothing’s changed at quarterback,” HC Gary Kubiak said Monday, per The Denver Post. “Mark and Trevor continue to split reps as far as with the first group, and Paxton’s behind those guys.” Kubiak said he will "probably" on Tuesday name the starter for Thursday's exhibition opener, but that the pair will continue to split time ahead of rookie Paxton Lynch. We'd still bet on the more experience Sanchez, but stranger things have certainly happened in preseason than someone beating out the former Jets and Eagles journeyman. We'll be curious to see how Siemian looks in game action.

Broncos HC Gary Kubiak likes the growth he's seeing from rookie QB Paxton Lynch. "No. 12 is really, really stepping up," Kubiak said. "He's making some progress here." Lynch still seems like a long shot to win the Week 1 starting job, but he figures to get on the field at some point this year. QB Mark Sanchez has had an up-and-down start to training camp and isn't a good bet to last the season as Denver's starter.

Mark Sanchez is the favorite for the Broncos' starting QB job heading to training camp, at least according to DT Sylvester Williams. "Going into the camp, I think Coach Kub kind of let us know he’s going to go with Mark and give Mark the opportunity to see what he can do and then go on from there," Williams said on SiriusXM radio. Sanchez has always been the best bet to be under center come Week 1 considering his competition is raw rookie Paxton Lynch and former 7th-rounder Trevor Siemian. Sanchez will need to fall flat on his face to lose the job this summer. That, of course, isn't out of the realm of possibility.

Andrew Mason of the Broncos' official website says the team's starting QB job is a "wide open competition."  Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch and even Trevor Siemian have received 1st-team reps in OTAs.  The battle will ultimately come down to Sanchez vs. Lynch.  While both guys have their warts, throwing to Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders could make Denver's QB a spot-start option in fantasy football.

Broncos QB Mark Sanchez recently underwent surgery on his left, non-throwing thumb, according to insider Mike Klis.  Sanchez is expected to be out "at least a week."  He'll likely miss next week's OTAs, but the issue shouldn't factor into Denver's QB competition.  Sanchez remains the current favorite to be under center come Week 1.  He'll need to hold off 1st-round rookie Paxton Lynch and potentially a veteran addition.

The Broncos traded up 5 spots to the 26th pick to select QB Paxton Lynch. The Memphis product improved his completion rate, passing yardage and TDs in each of his 3 seasons. He also ran for 560 yards and 15 scores over his final 2 college campaigns and recorded a SPARQ score in the 82nd percentile among QBs — just above Carson Wentz. Lynch is a project and might open this season behind Mark Sanchez. But he landed in a good spot under GM John Elway and HC Gary Kubiak. He’ll be worth a look in the 3rd round of dynasty rookie drafts.

The Broncos and 49ers have reportedly agreed on a trade that would send QB Colin Kaepernick to Denver.  But the Broncos are unwilling to pay Kaepernick the $11.9 million he's currently due in 2016.  John Elway and Co. are looking to get Kaep's salary down to the $7 million range.  Kaep hasn't shown any interest in taking a pay cut so far, and San Francisco hasn't agreed to take on any of his salary as part of a trade.  We'll continue to track the story.  Mark Sanchez is currently atop the Broncos' QB depth chart.

The Broncos are sending a conditional 2017 draft pick to the Eagles in exchange for QB Mark Sanchez, according to insider Mike Klis.  Denver lost Peyton Manning to retirement and Brock Osweiler to the Texans over the past week, so Sanchez looks like their 2016 starter.  He's been uneven in stints with the Jets and Eagles, sitting on a career 56.7% completion rate with 86 TDs and 84 INTs.  Sanchez will easily have the best weapons of his career in Denver, though, and might emerge as a fantasy spot starter.
