Colt McCoy breaks leg in Redskins' loss

Colt McCoy breaks leg in Redskins' loss

McCoy's injury occurred on the nasty slide and he was replaced by Mark Sanchez, who was tasked with keeping the Redskins afloat in the NFC playoff picture.

Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy suffered a broken leg during Monday night's matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, but surprisingly, he didn't leave the game right away.

McCoy was scrambling to his right to avoid the Philadelphia Eagles' pass rush when he slid down, and his right leg came up and slammed into the knee of Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins.

McCoy is the second Redskins quarterback injured this year.

It is an especially very bad outcome for McCoy, because of his injury history, and for the Redskins, who lost their starter Alex Smith to a broken leg only two weeks ago.

McCoy took over and made his second straight start after the gruesome season-ending leg injury to Alex Smith.

Sanchez was the lone QB left on Washington's roster. The former New York Jets first-round pick was signed by the Redskins when Smith suffered a ghastly broken leg on November 18.
