Jay Gruden Gives Another Pathetic Excuse for Not Signing Colin Kaepernick

Jay Gruden Gives Another Pathetic Excuse for Not Signing Colin Kaepernick

However, there is more concern beyond that with their quarterback situation with backup Colt McCoy now being out for the season with a broken leg.

The team failed to extend Kaepernick an invite to their workout a few weeks ago before signing Mark Sanchez. McCoy is scheduled to undergo further testing Tuesday, but he's expected to be out for the rest of the season, Gruden said. Sanchez's experience in a prostyle offense helped out a lot. Or, he said, they want someone who is similar in style to Sanchez.

Philadelphia Eagles' Doug Pederson, left, and Washington Redskins' Jay Gruden meet after an NFL football game, Monday, Dec. 3, 2018, in Philadelphia. He has spent time with the San Francisco 49ers, Sacramento Mountain Lions, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, New York Jets, Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders. Seattle won seven of those games, including the last National Football League game Kaepernick played on January 1, 2017.

"Not that Colin can't do some of the things I'm talking about".

For those that believe in karma, it was somewhat fitting for a team that declined to sign anthem kneeler Colin Kaepernick but did add domestic abuser Reuben Foster to need to play Sanchez in a meaningful game.

Chinese regulators declined to clear the deal, though the country later expressed regret over the transaction's collapse. The deal, which was originally announced in 2016, was approved by eight other regulators around the world.

Sanchez had only about 20 percent of the Redskins' playbook at his disposal when he replaced McCoy on Monday night. He threw an interception and fumbled once, though he recovered the ball.

Gruden said McCoy had surgery Tuesday but would not go on injured reserve immediately because there is a chance he might be able to return before the season ends. He underwent surgery to fix his fibula Tuesday.

For the second time in three games, the Redskins have lost a starting quarterback to a broken leg.

Several owners, coaches and team executives have been called to testify, and the case is scheduled to go to trial.
