Redskins QB Situation: Colt McCoy sharp early before leaving for 'precautionary reasons'

Redskins QB Situation: Colt McCoy sharp early before leaving for 'precautionary reasons'

RICHMOND -- Colt McCoy came out firing on Monday, having perhaps his best snaps of training camp, before he got tripped up late in the session and didn't finish the practice. McCoy walked off the field fine, showing no noticeable limp or even hitch in his step, but a Redskins spokesperson said that the quarterback's scheduled press conference session would be moved back a day so he could receive treatment on his leg.

A Redskins spokesperson later explained that McCoy left practice early for "precautionary reasons."

Big picture, McCoy is probably fine, or at least no different than where he was prior to practice. That's the interesting part though because McCoy is still working back from a broken leg suffered last December. Washington coach Jay Gruden made clear that McCoy will be getting rest during training camp and the plan was that the quarterback would not work four straight days in a row to give his leg a break. 

Couple leaving practice early on Monday with the plan to take it slowly throughout camp, and it seems clear McCoy's leg is still an issue, even if a minor one. That comes less than 24 hours after the Redskins released their first depth chart where McCoy landed as the No. 1 quarterback. 

Gruden was very clear in pointing out that the first depth chart was meaningless and only a media obligation, but he's also said all along that McCoy had a real chance at starting for the Redskins come Week 1 in Philadelphia. McCoy knows the offense best, and that shows up in practice, particularly before the ball is snapped. 

With McCoy out for the end of Monday's session, Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins both ran their normal two-minute drill to close out the session. They were joined by fourth QB Josh Woodrum running the drill too. Keenum had a pretty good day while Haskins struggled despite a few pretty deep balls. Woodrum only really worked in the final two-minute session.

Redskins announce Corey Robinson signing, place Trent Williams on reserve/did not report list

Redskins announce Corey Robinson signing, place Trent Williams on reserve/did not report list

The Redskins officially announced the signing of tackle Corey Robinson Saturday morning. The move comes in conjunction with placing Trent Williams on the reserve/did not report list.

The move comes just hours after the move to sign Robinson was reported on Friday night.

Robinson was signed after a Friday afternoon workout alongside fellow free agent and veteran offensive tackle Donald Penn. The initial thought was that just one of the two may be signed, but it was reported that Washington was still open to signing Penn, even after the Robinson signing. Moving Williams to the reserve/did not report list clears space for that.

The Redskins are reportedly signing an offensive tackle who isn't Donald Penn, for now

The Redskins are reportedly signing an offensive tackle who isn't Donald Penn, for now

Corey Robinson has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Redskins, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Robinson provides much-needed depth at the tackle position that has been affected by Trent Williams' holdout and other injuries.

In the midst of Williams' holdout, the Redskins worked out Robinson and fellow veteran tackle Donald Penn on Friday, the second day of training camp. While it was virtually certain Washington would have to sign one of the two, signing Robinson doesn't rule out also signing Penn, Keim reports.

Last year, Robinson played a total of four games for the Carolina Panthers (1) and Jacksonville Jaguars (3). He made one start for the Jaguars.

The former 7th-round draft pick played the first three years of his career in Detroit.
