NFL Injury Report: Olsen Headed to IR

This article is part of our Injury Analysis series.

Colt McCoy

Washington will enter Week 14 down to their third string quarterback. McCoy has been lost for the season after breaking his leg just two weeks after starter Alex Smith went down with a broken leg of his own. McCoy was injured early in the team's loss to the Eagles when his right leg whipped into safety Malcolm Jenkins. He limped off the field before an X-ray revealed the impact fractured McCoy's distal fibula.

McCoy's injury is not as severe as Smith's and comes with a drastically different course of treatment. McCoy's injury is isolated to the fibula, the smaller of the two lower leg bones, while Smith broke both the fibula and the tibia.
