Redskins rumors: Colin Kaepernick is best available option for Washington

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick hasn't played since the 2016 season. File

Now, McCoy has suffered a broken fibula of his own, going down early in Washington's loss on Monday night against the Eagles and leaving Sanchez as their starter having only been with the organization for two weeks.

Despite a three game slide and a general sense of foreboding surrounding the team, the Redskins are anything but out of the playoff picture. They're half a game back from the wild card spot, and a game back from the division title.

They just need to plug the leaks (injuries, everywhere) on offense, get their defense back in shape and they'll be right back in this thing.

Sanchez is set to start Washington's next game, which will be at home on Sunday against the New York Giants.

Sanchez took that team to the AFC Championship game where they lost to the one-seeded (and Peyton Manning-led) Colts. Redskins defensive line coach Jim Tomsula was the 49ers' head coach for one season during Kaepernick's time.

And they have an experienced set of bowlers in Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah . And if that meant some verbal banter, then so be it.

If you're wondering - and you can fully admit that you wondered - how Mark Sanchez feels about the infamous Buttfumble that's followed him through his National Football League career years after it happened in 2012, a reporter helped deliver an answer on Wednesday. But when we had a short week going to Dallas [on Thanksgiving] you had to have someone in here who had some similar conceptual awareness that we had with Colt. "Let's see what happens", Sanchez told reporters at Wednesday's press conference. The options in the free agent market are far from inspiring, which makes Kaepernick's perception as the best option available a disorienting claim. Come on. You can give it to me; I can give it right back.

One of the most important parts of practice this week will be learning the timing of his pass-catchers' routes. And worse football players are getting chance after chance after chance after chance after chance after chance. The Redskins said they considered Colin Kaepernick but made a decision to go in a different direction, subsequently hiring Josh Johnson to back up Sanchez.

The Redskins also worked out quarterbacks before signing Sanchez after Smith's injury.

"Sanchez had experience in a pro-style offense".

"I'm just trying to give him confidence that I can win for him", Reed said.
