In an almost unimaginable situation Monday night in Philadelphia, the Redskins lost another quarterback to a broken leg. 

Just two games since starting QB Alex Smith left the field with the broken tibia and fibula in his right leg, Colt McCoy left the field against the Eagles with a broken fibula. McCoy's injury took place late in the first quarter. As he attempted to scramble for extra yardage, he slipped and his ankle wrapped around the leg of Malcolm Jenkins. McCoy would play five more snaps before exiting the game. 

Mark Sanchez entered the game for the Redskins, and the team will again need to sign a veteran free agent QB for the remainder of the season as the backup. 

Seriously, this is crazy. 

Few teams lose their starting quarterback for the season. It happens maybe once or twice a year.

Even fewer teams lose their backup quarterback for the season after losing their starter. 

Looking ahead to 2019, the Redskins already needed to draft a passer after the Smith injury. Now, with McCoy facing a length recovery too, that need becomes even more significant.
