Fans clamoring for Redskins to sign Colin Kaepernick after latest injury

The Redskins, who say they briefly considered Colin Kaepernick and are hopeful Colt McCoy (broken fibula) can return this season, will turn to Josh Johnson to serve as fellow journeyman Mark Sanchez's backup at quarterback, according to multiple reports. On Monday night in Philadelphia, McCoy also fractured his leg, giving way to Sanchez. Mark Sanchez, signed two weeks ago, takes over as the starter. McCoy had replaced Alex Smith as the starting quarterback after Smith broke his right leg last month.

Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since 2016, when he started kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice.

Gruden insisted it was purely a sporting decision, adding: "Just football, strictly football". Sanchez being with [offensive coordinator Matt] Cavanaugh helped out a lot. "That's why we went with Sanchez". "You start to see stuff like that and it's nearly like teams are purposefully making it obvious that, like, they're keeping him out".
