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.
