McCoy completed seven of 10 passes for 59 yards in Friday's win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

It was a quiet night for the No. 2 quarterback as he managed the second half of Friday's win. McCoy has had a decent preseason, assuring Washington they're in good hands if anything happens to starter Kirk Cousins. McCoy's big day will come next week against the Buccaneers as he will likely start under center after head coach Jay Gruden confirmed all starters will rest.

McCoy completed 13 of 16 passes for 159 yards, two touchdowns and an interceptions in Friday's loss to the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy started and performed very efficiently, but he was unable to engineer a victory against one of the more solid opponents in the game. The veteran is expected to start the season as the top backup to Kirk Cousins after an eventful 2015/16 season, but he carries little fantasy upside even if he does step into a starting role.

McCoy has agreed to a three-year deal to remain with Washington, the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the franchise having parted ways with Robert Griffin, the team has quickly moved to ensure stability at the top of the QB depth chart, by franchising starter Kirk Cousins and securing the services of McCoy to remain his backup.

McCoy (foot) is active Sunday against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy will back up Kirk Cousins yet again, and with the way the latter has played, it's not out of the question that the former could see the field at some point this season.

McCoy is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

All Robert Griffin-related storylines will have to wait, as McCoy logged full practices throughout the week, leaving little question as to his availability for Sunday's game against the Eagles. With the way Kirk Cousins is playing, it won't be surprising if McCoy sees the field before mid-season.

McCoy (foot) practiced in full Wednesday, The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

After watching Monday's practice from the sideline due to a cut on his left foot, McCoy was able to handle the entire slate of drills Wednesday. However, the foot was encased in a heavy bandage, which places some question over his ability to suit up Sunday against the Eagles. An absence would put Robert Griffin in the backup quarterback role.

McCoy missed Monday's practice due to a cut on his foot, the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

McCoy watched the proceedings from the sideline Monday, during which Robert Griffin directed the second team offense. Washington doesn't have to release the nature of McCoy's injury until Wednesday's injury report, but head coach Jay Gruden should have more information when it's released.

McCoy will be listed as the Redskins' No. 2 QB against Miami in Week 1, NFL.com's Jeff Darlington reports.

EDGE Analysis

This does not come as much of a surprise, as the Redskins seem intent on not playing Robert Griffin at this time. McCoy is probably not much of a step down from Kirk Cousins, so he could see some action in the coming weeks if he remains ahead of Griffin on the depth chart.

McCoy is re-signing with the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

With McCoy, Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins all under contract for 2015, the Redskins have a trio of less-than-inspiring options. It's still quite possible the team addresses the position in the draft and/or seeks out a trade for Cousins or Griffin. Despite his above-average mobility, McCoy doesn't offer much upside in either real life or fantasy.

McCoy (neck) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Coach Jay Gruden had previously labeled McCoy as doubtful for Week 16, but apparently the setback with McCoy's neck injury is severe enough to keep him from the final two games of the 2014 campaign. Robert Griffin will return to the starting role Saturday against Philadelphia, with Kirk Cousins serving as his backup.
