Jay Gruden Says Redskins Considered Colin Kaepernick

Washington quarterback Colt McCoy had surgery Tuesday after fracturing his right fibula in a 28-13 loss at the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.

Outside of a 90-yard touchdown romp from Adrian Peterson, McCoy's replacement, Mark Sanchez, proved mostly ineffective in moving the Washington offense. Alex Smith broke his fibula and tibia in Week 11.

"He's been discussed for sure", Gruden said.

Kaepernick was not considered two weeks ago when the team worked out and signed Sanchez, Gruden explained, for similar reasons. "So he's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go a different direction". "There's all sorts of things, but I think now the Colin Kaepernick discussion should at least be had".

"It's just going to be a matter of which way do we want to go?" "Now it goes from contingency plan to game plan", Sanchez said. There's reported interest that the Redskins would never bring him in. Sanchez being with [offensive coordinator Matt] Cavanaugh helped out a lot. And Redskins assistant head coach/offensive line coach Bill Callahan served in the same role with the Jets when Sanchez was there. There are various read option plays he ran in San Francisco that the Redskins could easily incorporate. "If it was Week 1, there would be a better possibility". But with four games left, it's harder to alter a system.

Gruden said that bringing Kaepernick in at this stage of the season would require too many offensive changes, including new run concepts and protection packages. He threw an interception and fumbled once, though he recovered the ball. McCoy is also expected to miss the remainder of the season with his injury. Gruden said there's a chance McCoy would be ready for the December 30 finale vs. Philadelphia.

Notes: Already missing two starting guards, the Redskins lost two more against Philadelphia. But they're still alive in the playoff race, trailing Dallas by one game in the NFC East. He filed a grievance against the National Football League past year, saying team owners colluded to keep him off rosters.
