The Redskins quarterback broke both major bones in his right leg Sunday, ending his season, perhaps threatening his career and eerily echoing another horrific leg injury by a Redskins quarterback.
Sanchez will back up Colt McCoy, who took over at QB for the Redskins in their 23-21 loss to the Houston Texans on Sunday following the broken tibia and fibula Smith suffered. Sanchez's last start came in 2015, while McCoy's last start came in 2014.
Given Sanchez's track record of epic failure with the Jets, one must wonder why the Redskins would want to recreate the system that led to a four-year barrage of interceptions and incompletions.

Sanchez has worked with several Redskins assistant coaches while with the New York Jets.
A seven-year National Football League veteran, Sanchez has not played since appearing briefly for the Dallas Cowboys in two games in 2016 and has not started since Week 3 of 2015, with the Philadelphia Eagles. With McCoy's lifetime record of 7-18, it's likely Sanchez will see some time before the season is over, too. The goal is to win games and Smith has done exactly that.
