Redskins’ Colt McCoy is done for the season

Colt McCoy

Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy recently started running drills, but that doesn’t mean he will be available for his team’s season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles.

According to Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post, McCoy will not play in the Redskins’ Week 17 game against the Eagles while he recovers from a broken leg he suffered earlier in the month.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden had previously said that McCoy could be available if they were able to make the playoffs, but that is out of the question now after Washington was eliminated from playoff contention following a loss to the Tennessee Titans on Saturday.

McCoy stepped in for the Redskins back on Nov. 18 against the Houston Texans after Alex Smith left the game with a gruesome broken leg that knocked him out for the season. McCoy completed six of his 12 passes for 54 yards and a touchdown in that contest.

Overall this season, the 32-year-old has thrown for 372 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in four games and two starts, completing 63 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 78.6.

McCoy, who played his collegiate football at the University of Texas, was originally selected by the Cleveland Browns in the third round (85th pick overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft.

He started 21 games for the Browns in three years before moving on to the San Francisco 49ers in 2013, where he played in three games. He landed in Washington in 2014 and has been on the Redskins’ bench ever since.

Washington fell to 7-8 after its loss to the Titans.
