Will Redskins sign Colin Kaepernick with Mark Sanchez now starting at QB?

If anything, he's better than any of these guys, as it relates to backup quarterbacks (which the team will need to sign immediately, even if they elect to roll with Sanchez).

There's no guarantee Sanchez will remain the starter.

Washington Redskins' quarterback Colt McCoy is out for the rest of the season after suffering a broken leg during Monday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. "Now it goes from contingency plan to game plan", Sanchez said. I was praying for the opportunity and I thank God for the opportunity, you just never wanted it under these circumstances.

A few weeks ago, the Washington Redskins lost QB Alex Smith for the season.

Sanchez was once the franchise quarterback for the New York Jets and led them to the AFC championship game his first two seasons in the NFL. When they got to him he fumbled the ball, but lucky for him he pressed the ball to his butt to avoid losing possession of it.

His start in the Thanksgiving game against Dallas was his first since 2014 and he won't get another one this year. McCoy went to the locker room with a leg injury and was shown on TV limping considerably after getting an X-ray. He filed a grievance against the National Football League past year, saying team owners colluded to keep him off rosters.

The tape is out on Sanchez, with the (6-6) Redskins still in the playoff hunt, but another loss could end their season. Gruden said there's a chance McCoy would be ready for the December 30 finale vs. Philadelphia.

Before the veteran quarterback walked his way off the field under his own power, the Redskins backup quarterback stayed in the game for at least two more plays after he had broken his leg. That group included Kellen Clemens, T.J. Yates, EJ Manuel and Josh Johnson.
