Redskins HC Jay Gruden named QB Colt McCoy his starter for Sunday's game against the Patriots. It'll be McCoy's 1st action since breaking his leg last December. He completed 63% of his passes but averaged just 6.9 yards per attempt with 3 TDs and 3 INTs in 3 appearances for Washington last year. McCoy obviously isn't a fantasy option vs. New England's stingy defense.
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 Redskins have placed QB Colt McCoy (neck) on IR. That leaves the starting job to QB Robert Griffin for the final 2 games against the Eagles and Cowboys. He'll be auditioning to either keep the gig in Washington or land a starting job elsewhere in 2015. RG3 is obviously a risky fantasy play, but there's upside in the positive matchups. He's an intriguing option in DFS tournaments.
