Mark Sanchez, who was signed two weeks ago - when Smith was lost for 2018, takes over as Washington's QB.

"It's just going to be a matter of which way do we want to go?" "But we will probably go a different direction".

Gruden insisted it was purely a sporting decision, adding: "Just football, strictly football".

"We wanted a guy with a similar skill set with Colt", Gruden said. That helped out a lot. The team had a short week before playing on Thanksgiving and Gruden wanted someone who could fit in as soon as possible. "Now it goes from contingency plan to game plan", Sanchez said. They didn't have a great reason for not bringing him in.

Washington's injury woes at the quarterback position continued on Monday night. He has spent time with the San Francisco 49ers, Sacramento Mountain Lions, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets, Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders. But with four games left, it's harder to alter a system.

"Not that Colin can't do some of the things I'm talking about".

He was the first player to kneel during the USA national anthem. Sanchez went 13-of-21 for 100 yards and an interception without much knowledge of the playbook. The injury ends McCoy's season. Gruden said there's a chance McCoy would be ready for the December 30 finale vs. Philadelphia.

When he limped to the sideline, he was having trouble putting weight on his leg, and he eventually made his way into the Redskins locker room, where an x-ray revealed he had a broken bone. But they're still alive in the playoff race, trailing Dallas by one game in the NFC East.

He has filed a grievance against National Football League team owners he claims conspired not to hire him because of his protests.

Several owners, coaches and team executives have been called to testify, and the case is scheduled to go to trial.
