Jay Gruden Says Redskins Considered Colin Kaepernick

Jay Gruden Says Redskins Considered Colin Kaepernick

After Colt McCoy was their latest quarterback to go down Monday night, thrusting Sanchez into the starting role moving forward, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he didn't expect to the team to bring in Kaepernick.

Gruden told reporters during a conference call that there would have been "a greater possibility" of considering Kaepernick for a roster spot if the Redskins were in need of a QB in Week 1 rather than at this stage of the season. "But we will probably go a different direction". Sanchez being with [offensive coordinator Matt] Cavanaugh helped out a lot.

The Washington Redskins have a quarterback problem. Yates before going with Sanchez.

Kaepernick has been without a team since he opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2017. Seattle won seven of those games, including the last National Football League game Kaepernick played on January 1, 2017.




"In order to utilize someone like Colin Kaepernick's skill set, you're talking about a whole new group of formations and run concepts", Gruden said.

He was the first player to kneel during the United States national anthem. Sanchez completed 13 of 21 passes for 100 yards and led a field goal drive to close the second quarter.

When he limped to the sideline, he was having trouble putting weight on his leg, and he eventually made his way into the Redskins locker room, where an x-ray revealed he had a broken bone.

Gruden said McCoy would not go on injured reserve immediately because there is a slight chance he might be able to return to action by Week 17.
