However, there is more concern beyond that with their quarterback situation with backup Colt McCoy now being out for the season with a broken leg. Smith broke both the tibia and fibula in his leg in a game on November 18 against the Houston Texans.

The Washington Redskins saw their playoff chances take another hit on Monday night after falling 28-13 to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Now, the Redskins are once again on the market for a quarterback, needing someone to come in and backup Sanchez in case he too goes down. "Not a lot of time to really get a brand new quarterback, a new system installed and taught in a couple days of practice".

"He's been discussed (internally) but I think we will probably go in a different direction", Gruden said, via the Washington Post.

Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance, hasn't played since the 2016 season, when he began kneeling during the national anthem as a way to protest police brutality and social and racial injustice.

"In order to utilize someone like Colin Kaepernick's skill set, you're talking about a whole new group of formations and run concepts", Gruden said. Not that Colin can't do some of the things we've talked about, but we want someone with a little more familiarity. He filed a grievance against the National Football League past year, saying team owners colluded to keep him off rosters.

McCoy went down with a fractured right fibula at the end of the first quarter, ESPN reports. "That's why we went with Sanchez".

Gruden also said McCoy might return this season.
