The Redskins opener against the Eagles is only 20 days away, and it looks like the starting quarterback job is Case Keenum’s — by default.
Colt McCoy has yet to play in the preseason and said yesterday that he has visited noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson twice since training camp began on July 25.
He suffered a broken right leg last Dec. 1 and needed three surgeries in the offseason. He has practiced throughout camp, but admitted early on that he was still having issues with his leg. He has not played in the preseason and did not practice yesterdsay.
McCoy said he did not have a setback in camp and said he expects to return “sooner rather than later.”
“It might be two or three weeks into the season,” Redskins coach Jay Gruden said of when McCoy might return. “We don’t know yet. There’s no timetable for him until he feels like he’s 100% to push off that leg. Until that time comes, he’s going to be rehabbing.”
