McCoy (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at Miami.
If the Redskins have to make a change at QB on Sunday, as they have in many games this season, McCoy won't be taking the field. Instead, Case Keenum will get the start while rookie Dwayne Haskins serves as his backup.
McCoy likely will be inactive for Sunday's game in Miami, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Interim coach Bill Callahan plans to use Dwayne Haskins as the backup quarterback behind starter Case Keenum. There isn't much reason to keep McCoy active for the contest.
McCoy is expected to assume a reserve role Sunday in Miami with Case Keenum (foot) likely to return from a one-game absence, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
In his first action of the season this past Sunday, McCoy had a tough go of it in a blowout loss to the Patriots, completing 18 of 27 passes for 119 yards and one interception. The Redskins proceeded to fire Jay Gruden in the wake of that contest, promoting Bill Callahan to interim head coach in the process. Per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, Callahan will announce a starting quarterback "later this week," but it appears McCoy will be the second-stringer, at best, this weekend.
McCoy completed 18 of 27 passes for 119 yards and an interception while rushing twice for 14 yards in Sunday's 33-7 loss to New England.
McCoy was faced with a daunting matchup in his season debut, so he unsurprisingly struggled against a Patriots defense that's arguably the best in the league. A silver lining here is that McCoy showed some promising chemistry with rookie receiver Terry McLaurin, who accounted for 51 of McCoy's 119 yards. It remains to be seen whether McCoy, Case Keenum (foot) or rookie Dwayne Haskins starts under center when the winless Redskins face the winless Dolphins in Week 6.
McCoy will start Sunday's game against the Patriots, Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington reports.
McCoy gets his first start of the 2019 campaign, while the No. 2 job will come down to Case Keenum's health, with the veteran quarterback listed as questionable due to a foot injury. McCoy will have his hands full, facing a red-hot Patriots defense without the services of Jordan Reed (concussion) or Vernon Davis (concussion). Washington also has Terry McLaurin (hamstring) listed as questionable, trending toward another game-time decision.
