The Redskins have lost their two senior quarterbacks to injury. Not that Colin can't do some of the things we've talked about, but we want someone with a little more familiarity. His camp has been actively pursuing a collusion suit against the NFL owners, alleging that Kaepernick has had work opportunities closed off to him, due to his activism on the national stage. "But we will probably go a different direction".

Colt McCoy, who replaced Alex Smith as the team's quarterback when Smith broke his leg in a loss vs. Houston, suffered a broken right fibula during the first half of Monday's game vs. Philadelphia.

"[There's] not a lot of time to get a brand new QB and a system installed and taught in a couple days", Gruden said on a conference call with reporters Tuesday.

Colt McCoy played through a broken leg on Monday night. "When you're talking about a backup quarterback this late in the game you want someone with a similar skill set to the quarterback you have".


Against the Eagles, the 32-year-old Sanchez compiled a passer rating of 53.7, going 13 for 21 for only 100 yards with one interception and one fumble that he managed to recover. "Now it goes from contingency plan to game plan", Sanchez said.

"This is a tough blow", Gruden said. Here's a look at the type of offense we can expect to see from the Redskins with Sanchez at quarterback.

Back in November, after Smith's injury. the 'Skins reportedly worked out EJ Manuel, Josh Johnson and T.J.
