Redskins signing Sanchez to back up McCoy

Alex Smith Was Carted Off With An Ugly Looking Ankle Injury Against Houston (UPDATED)

Redskins QB Alex Smith done for season

The Washington Redskins reportedly have signed Mark Sanchez to back up Colt McCoy at quarterback after Alex Smith was lost for the season with a broken leg. Sanchez has worked with three of Washington's assistant coaches previously and has a short week ahead of him.

The Redskins traded a third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller to the Kansas City Chiefs for Smith this offseason.

France regrets Trump's hitting tweets during Paris attacks anniversary: spokesperson
Mr Trump was widely criticised for failing to visit the Aisne-Marne American cemetery before Armistice Day. Trump was one of many world leaders commemorating the 100 anniversary of the end of the First World War.

When Alex Smith went down yesterday with one of the more gruesome leg injuries we've seen since Joe Theismann famously broke his leg, FedEx Field went quiet. Redskins passing game coordinator Kevin O'Connell was a backup quarterback for parts of three seasons with the Jets during Sanchez's time there. His first start will come Thursday in Dallas, with first-place on the line. In those two years, he threw 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions while posting an 86.6 passer rating.

That said, while McCoy is the unquestioned starter, the Redskins haven't kept a third quarterback this year.

Trump Says He Won't Listen to Khashoggi 'Suffering Tape'
Saudi Arabia is a major oil supplier and a close ally of the United States in countering Iranian power in the Middle East. He pushed for Riyadh to disclose the location of Khashoggi's remains and called for the suspects to be tried in Turkey.

Before Sanchez' signing there was no one behind McCoy on the depth chart. He was never able to latch onto a starting job again, and this season, he went without a job.

With Sanchez now the backup quarterback in Washington, it means the Redskins will be heading into Dallas with two quarterbacks who have started a combined ZERO games over the past two and a half seasons.
