Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy will likely start against the New York Giants as he has been cleared to play following a neck injury.
Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden is getting his way as quarterback Colt McCoy has been cleared to play on Sunday against the New York Giants after suffering a neck injury in the Redskins’ latest loss.
McCoy was initially expected to miss time and be replaced by Robert Griffin III, but he has healed quickly and will look to get the Redskins offense back on track after a shutout at the hands of the St. Louis Rams.
Gruden has been openly frustrated with Griffin this season, and McCoy has arguably been the best quarterback on the Redskins’ roster this season. McCoy should be officially announced as the starter soon.
Here is a tweet from ESPN NFL Nation Redskins reporter John Keim updating on McCoy’s playing status.
It’s official: Colt McCoy has been cleared to play Sunday vs. the New York Giants, per team source.
