Washington remains to be ready for Colt McCoy to be game-ready.
The Redskins sign caller broke his proper leg in 2018 and has been working towards a return.
Coach Jay Gruden mentioned McCoy’s progress Sunday however could not predict when he’d make his 2019 debut.
“Oh man, it might not be the end of camp, it might be two or three weeks into the season,” Gruden advised reporters. “We don’t know yet. There is no timetable for him until he feels like he’s 100 percent to push off that leg. Until that time comes, he’s gonna be rehabbing.”
McCoy turned Washington’s starter when Alex Smith fractured his leg final season and threw for 372 yards and three touchdowns earlier than struggling his personal season-ending damage. He was held out of form final week due to leg soreness and Washington’s quarterback room is undermanned.
Smith faces a protracted street to restoration from his leg fracture and may not play in any respect in 2019. Within the meantime Case Keenum and 2019 draft decide Dwayne Haskins are competing for the primary spot on the depth chart.
Gruden acknowledges the staff’s restricted choices may be an issue and has thought-about signing one other quarterback if McCoy’s discomfort lingers into the common season.
“That’s an issue we’ll talk about for sure,” Gruden mentioned. “We’ll wait and see how far along we feel like he (McCoy) is once we get going after this game (against the Falcons on Thursday). Heading into preseason game four and then heading into the Philadelphia week we’ll see where he is and make a determination on how many quarterbacks we’ll keep.”
