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.

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