Redskins QB McCoy fractures fibula
Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy fractured his right fibula during the Monday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles, ESPN reported during the broadcast.
The injury thrust 32-year-old journeyman Mark Sanchez, who was signed Nov. 19 and last played at the end of 2016, into the lineup. Washington lost starter Alex Smith to a compound fracture in his right leg on Nov. 18 against the Houston Texans.
McCoy was hurt when his leg collided with Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins while he was sacked to end the first quarter. McCoy finished the drive, throwing two short passes to help Washington to a 44-yard field goal. He then left and was initially ruled questionable to return while going to the locker room for X-rays.
The team officially ruled McCoy out during halftime.
McCoy, 32, went 34 for 54 for 372 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in parts of three games this year.
NFL Network reported two weeks ago that McCoy's contract included playing-time incentives that could let him hit free agency this offseason, but the injury appears to rule out that possibility.
