McCoy is also expected to miss the remainder of the season with his injury. They signed Mark Sanchez because of his familiarity with the coaching staff, but in such little time, there's no realistic way the Redskins can get him up to speed in time to stay in the playoff race.

Kaepernick has not played since January 2017 after protesting against racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the USA national anthem.

Gruden told reporters during a conference call that there would have been "a greater possibility" of considering Kaepernick for a roster spot if the Redskins were in need of a QB in Week 1 rather than at this stage of the season. His camp has been actively pursuing a collusion suit against the NFL owners, alleging that Kaepernick has had work opportunities closed off to him, due to his activism on the national stage.

Gruden says the team will have a workout with QBs later this afternoon. though it's unclear if Kaepernick will be a part of those. But when we had a short week going to Dallas [on Thanksgiving] you had to have someone in here who had some similar conceptual awareness that we had with Colt.

"It's about evaluating the skill set", Gruden said. Sanchez being with [offensive coordinator Matt] Cavanaugh helped out a lot.

Kaepernick has not been able to join an National Football League team's roster, despite a 49ers resume that includes leading the team to a Super Bowl appearance in the 2012 season. "Now it goes from contingency plan to game plan", Sanchez said.
