Colt McCoy QB WAS 1 Month

While Robert Griffin had his most extensive workout to date it still appears likely that McCoy will start Sunday, the Washington Post reports.

McCoy and Griffin split practice reps but Head Coach Jay Gruden has stated Griffin has to prove he is completely healthy before returning to the field.

Coach Jay Gruden said Monday that McCoy will get Washington's starter's reps at quarterback this week.

At this stage, fellow QB Robert Griffin isn't totally ruled out for action this weekend, but per Gruden, Griffin has "a long way to go" on that front. As a result, for now Washington is proceeding as though McCoy will draw the start at QB for the team in next Monday's contest against Dallas.

McCoy, who replaced Kirk Cousins after halftime and completed 11-of-12 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Titans, is expected to start Week 8 at the Dallas Cowboys if Robert Griffin does not return from his ankle injury, ESPN.com reports.

McCoy was solid but unspectacular Sunday, doing just enough to keep the Redskins in the game, which they ultimately won on a 22-yard field goal by Kai Forbath as time expired. Griffin is expected to return in Week 9 against the Vikings, but head coach Jay Gruden left open the possibility of him returning in Week 8 if he can get in at least one full practice before the game. McCoy has thrown only 18 passes in the last two seasons, but with Cousins continuing to turn the ball over, he appears likely to get the start next week.

ESPN's John Keim expects Colt McCoy to make the Redskins' 53-man roster.

With Robert Griffin's durability issues, it makes sense for the Redskins to keep three quarterbacks. McCoy hasn't started a game since 2011, but should provide veteran insurance behind backup Kirk Cousins.

Redskins signed QB Colt McCoy.

McCoy hasn't started a game since 2011, when he went 4-9 with a 74.6 passer rating for the Browns. He spent last year as Colin Kaepernick's backup in San Francisco. The popgun-armed McCoy slides in behind Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins as the No. 3 arm in Washington.

Coach Jim Harbaugh announced after Sunday night's preseason game that Colt McCoy has won the 49ers' No. 2 quarterback job.

(On the same day McCoy agreed to cut his salary in half.) "I feel real good that Colt is the backup," said Harbs. Rookie B.J. Daniel will likely be kept as the third-stringer, with Seneca Wallace and Scott Tolzein getting cut. If Colin Kaepernick were ever hurt, the 49ers' offense would likely revert to the Alex Smith-like version with conservative playcalling to compensate for McCoy's numerous limitations. He's not a starting-caliber passer.

The 49ers have restructured Colt McCoy's contract, dropping his base salary to the NFL minimum of $630,000.

He was previously owed $1.5 million. The 49ers ostensibly gave McCoy an ultimatum amid trade rumors, threatening to cut him if he didn't slash his salary. With no guaranteed money, McCoy still isn't assured a spot on the final 53.

CSN Bay Area left 49ers backup QB Colt McCoy off its most recent 53-man roster projection.

McCoy has struggled his way through the preseason and camp, prompting the 49ers to sign used-up veteran Seneca Wallace. Injury prone and prone to throwing at his receivers' feet, McCoy could be running out of time in the league.
