According to my score-keeping, McCoy stayed in the game for two more plays, and completed both his passes for 5 and 10 yards to set up a 44-yard field goal, AFTER he broke his leg. And he's done for the season.

McCoy went down with a fractured right fibula at the end of the first quarter, ESPN reports. Philadelphia will rely on versatile safety Malcolm Jenkins, their best defensive back, in the matchup. He later had x-rays taken in the team's locker room. He received his first regular-season action since 2016.

McCoy's injury occurred on the nasty slide and he was replaced by Mark Sanchez, who was tasked with keeping the Redskins afloat in the NFC playoff picture. He signed with the Redskins two weeks ago after they lost starting quarterback Alex Smith to a gruesome leg injury.

Things always have a way of coming full circle, and that's what happened when the Redskins QB had a butt fumble....recovery in the second quarter. The Redskins said that McCoy would not return, but didn't immediately provide details about the injury.
