Colt McCoy likely to start for Redskins in Week 5?
The Washington Redskins have yet to publicly make a quarterback decision, but it sounds like Jay Gruden might have his mind made up.
On Monday, Gruden declined to name a Week 5 starter for the team’s game against New England, but suggested that he wants to see how players perform in practice before cementing his decision. JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington suggests Gruden is leaning toward starting Colt McCoy, but wants to see the quarterback practice first.
Gruden says he might have already made a decision at QB but wants to see the guys perform before he announces it.
(To me, that sounds a lot like Colt)

McCoy broke his leg last season and hasn’t played since. He is reportedly fully healthy, and if so, that would put him in excellent position to start. Case Keenum has not gotten the job done, and Dwayne Haskins was unconvincing in his Week 4 cameo. It’s not clear if McCoy would do much better, but he knows the organization and the scheme and can’t really do much worse.
