Colt McCoy | Cardinals QB

The Cardinals are re-signing Colt McCoy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

McCoy is back on a two-year, $7.5-million deal, and now we'll see if Arizona is able to lock up Kyler Murray with a long-term deal—though it's technically not something that needs to be addressed this offseason. The Texas product should remain one of the top backup quarterbacks in the league.

The Cardinals are signing Colt McCoy.

McCoy will now be joining his fifth team since getting drafted in the third round of the 2010 draft, so the veteran quarterback has done quite well to stick around in the league and find solid backup roles for so long. The Texas product will be a good presence in the quarterback room for third-year signal-caller Kyler Murray.

The Giants are signing Colt McCoy, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

McCoy has made 28 career starts in the NFL, so he'll be a good asset for second-year quarterback Daniel Jones to lean on this season. McCoy spent the previous five seasons with the Redskins, so he'll move up the coast to another NFC East squad.

Colt McCoy will start for the Redskins in Week 5.

McCoy is now healthy, and he's long been a favorite of Redskins head coach Jay Gruden, so this isn't surprising. The veteran quarterback has made six career starts for Washington, and his experience in Gruden's offense could help the unit play more consistently. McCoy is not a recommended Week 5 fantasy option facing an elite Patriots defense.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden suggests that Colt McCoy (leg) may not be ready until into the regular season.

McCoy was thought to have a good chance to win the starting job in a three-way competition with Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins, but the recovery from a broken leg has not gone smoothly. Hopefully McCoy can get cleared sooner than expected, but Keenum is fully expected to be under center when Washington takes on Philadelphia in Week 1.

Colt McCoy suffered a fractured right fibula, Lisa Salters of ESPN reports.

His season is now over. He fought through and played AFTER the injury, so you have to admire him fighting through the pain for his team. This is just heartbreaking news for the nine-year veteran who had a great opportunity to attempt to lead Washington to the playoffs in the NFC. Mark Sanchez will now lead the Redskins over the final four-plus games, and the Redskins will have to bring someone else in to join the quarterback room. We wish McCoy the best of luck on his recovery and hope to see him back on the field in 2019.

Colt McCoy (lower leg) has been ruled out for the rest of tonight's game.

McCoy looks to be dealing with a serious injury based on how he was moving around after leaving the game, so this was expected. It'll be Mark Sanchez, who has played very well since entering the game, leading the Redskins in the second half of their huge game against the Eagles. McCoy's night ends at 4/4 for 50 yards, and this is obviously a really unfortunate injury for him during his opportunity to try to lead a team to the playoffs. Hopefully his injury isn't a season-ender.

Colt McCoy (right lower leg) is questionable to return against the Eagles.

McCoy appeared to tweak his leg while slipping on a scramble, and he was limping pretty badly and is now headed to the locker room. Mark Sanchez is set to enter the game against one of his former teams.

Colt McCoy has up and down day in Redskins' Thanksgiving loss.

McCoy was 24/38 for 268 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions along with five carries for 28 yards against the Cowboys. The touchdowns were to Vernon Davis (for 53 yards on a deep ball) and to Try Quinn on a nice throw in the red zone. The Cowboys got pressure on McCoy, but he made some questionable decisions by making some throws into traffic. Overall, he showed playmaking ability and just needs to take care of the ball more moving forward as he looks to lead the Redskins to an NFC East title. McCoy isn't a highly-recommended fantasy option for Week 13 against the Eagles.

Colt McCoy throws one touchdown in Week 11.

Unfortunately, McCoy had to enter the game after a season-ending leg injury to starter Alex Smith. McCoy played well, though, going 6/12 for 54 yards and a touchdown along with five carries for 35 yards. He scrambled around and made plays, and the Redskins actually dialed up a zone-read on his first play of the game. He's likely to use his legs moving forward. McCoy is suddenly the starting quarterback for a first-place team, and the Redskins have been very high on him. The former Texas star knows Jay Gruden's offense better than maybe anyone on the team, and he should play well moving forward. He's not a recommended fantasy pickup in a run-heavy offense, though.

Colt McCoy bounces back in second preseason game.

After struggling last week, McCoy was 7/11 for 70 yards and one touchdown in the Redskins' loss to Green Bay last night. Washington's backup will likely see limited action next week against Cincinnati.

Colt McCoy | Cardinals QB

Colt McCoy was 6/13 for 40 yards and one interception in Thursday night's preseason opener.

The Redskins did not look good as a team in the exhibition, losing 23-3 to Baltimore. McCoy should have an easier time next week against the Packers, but his job backing up Kirk Cousins is safe.
