Colt McCoy breaks leg in Redskins' loss

Colt McCoy breaks leg in Redskins' loss

It is an especially terrible outcome for McCoy, because of his injury history, and for the Redskins, who lost their starter Alex Smith to a broken leg only two weeks ago. And he's done for the season.

The 32-year-old quarterback injured his right leg in the first half of the Redskins' Monday Night Football battle with the Philadelphia Eagles. After halftime, ESPN reporter Lisa Salters said McCoy had a fractured right fibula. Philadelphia will rely on versatile safety Malcolm Jenkins, their best defensive back, in the matchup.

'It's the real me': Nigerian president denies he's a clone
President Muhammadu Buhari has dismissed as wicked the cloning allegation against him, saying "It's real me, I assure you". Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has denied rumours that he had died and had been replaced by a lookalike.

Salters said McCoy tried to move on the sideline, including dropbacks, and he told the trainers he couldn't do it. But the Redskins are on the road and play three more NFC East games over the next five, so they can't afford to drop one Monday night as the rest of the NFC continues to solidify. In came Sanchez. Sanchez is the only other quarterback on the active roster and will presumably take over as the team's starter.

It's wild to think that McCoy was able to keep going with a broken leg, but it's even wilder that he was able to complete a few important passes that led to a much-needed score for the Redskins.
