Colt McCoy QB WAS 10 Days
McCoy (neck) took the majority of first-team practice snaps Thursday, the Washington Post reports. McCoy was listed as limited on the injury report but head coach Jay Gruden says "he had a good day."
McCoy is expected to start Sunday if he gets cleared by the medical staff. All signs point to him being on the field Sunday.

Coach Jay Gruden indicated Thursday that as long as McCoy (neck) is medically cleared, he will start Sunday's game against the Giants, ESPN's John Keim reports.
With that in mind, McCoy is slated to see a doctor Friday, and if that visit goes as hoped, McCoy will draw Washington's Week 15 starting QB nod. In the event that McCoy does not gain clearance to play this week, however, Robert Griffin "would go," per Gruden.

McCoy (neck) took the first snap during individual drills Thursday, CSN's Tarik El-Bashir reports.
The Redskins have not announced who will start at quarterback this week, but with McCoy lining up under center first Thursday, consider him the favorite to get the nod over Robert Griffin III so long as he is healthy enough to play.

McCoy (neck) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.
Early in the week, McCoy received good news when it was revealed that he sustained no structural damage to his neck following Sunday's loss to the Rams. An appearance in the first practice of the week is another step in the right direction, but coach Jay Gruden said afterward that he isn't ready to make a decision on the starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Giants in New York. If McCoy is unable to attain his usual range of motion, Robert Griffin is expected to be under center in Week 15.

Tests on McCoy's neck revealed no structural damage, the Washington Post reports. His status for Sunday's game will depend on soreness and if he can regain range of motion.
If McCoy is unable to play Robert Griffin will likely take the field.

Coach Jay Gruden indicated Monday that McCoy has a neck sprain and is undergoing tests to assess the injury.
"Once I get all that information, then I'll make a decision on the QB position," coach Jay Gruden noted with regard to the team's Week 15 plans at quarterback. Per Gruden, if McCoy can't play Sunday against the Giants, Robert Griffin would draw the start in his place.

McCoy, who is dealing with a neck issue that forced him out of Sunday's game against the Rams, is slated to meet with doctors later Monday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
At this stage, it's unclear who will start at QB for Washington this coming Sunday against the Giants, though if McCoy's neck issue is anything but minor, the stage would presumably be set for Robert Griffin to get the nod, though ESPN's John Keim suggests that Kirk Cousins could potentially enter the discussion as well.

McCoy left Sunday's game against the Rams with a neck strain and was replaced by Robert Griffin III.
The Rams dismantled Washington in this game, and McCoy was a major reason why, completing 20 of 32 passes for 199 yards and two interceptions. The Redskins may have pulled McCoy late in the game anyway, and there seems to be a legitimate chance that the team will go back to Griffin for next Sunday's game against the Giants. We'll track the team's quarterback situation throughout the week.

McCoy completed 31-of-47 passes for 392 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's loss to the Colts, but he fumbled four times, losing one. Despite the 49-27 loss, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said after the game that McCoy will start in Week 14 against the Rams, ESPN.com reports.
The overall numbers were very solid for McCoy, but he was up-and-down during the game, throwing for only 94 yards in the first half before exploding in the second. He connected with nine different receivers on the day, throwing touchdowns to DeSean Jackson, Roy Helu and Logan Paulsen, while starting tight end Jordan Reed caught nine of 11 targets for 123 yards. McCoy is going to keep starting as long as he plays well, but he's got a tough matchup next week against the Rams, who blanked the Raiders in Week 13.

Coach Jay Gruden confirmed Wednesday that McCoy will start Sunday's game against the Colts, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
While the team's plans at QB beyond Week 13 haven't been mapped out, McCoy would presumably need to struggle, or suffer an injury, for 3-8 Washington to consider another switch at the position this season. McCoy is thus worthy of a speculative add in order to see how he produces while helming the team's offense moving forward, though with no NFL teams on bye this week, he's initially only worth a look in deeper formats.
