Backup quarterback Colt McCoy suffered a cut on one of his feet over the weekend, and that injury prevented him from being able to practice on Monday.

McCoy wore sneakers and a ball cap along with his jersey and only watched as the Redskins went through practice. He rode an equipment cart down to the practice field and walked slowly while watching his teammates.

Coach Jay Gruden declined to give any details on the nature of the injury that McCoy had suffered because league rules don’t require teams to release injury reports until Wednesday if they don’t play until the following Sunday. But Gruden did confirm that McCoy had suffered an injury.

Later Monday evening, a person with knowledge of the situation said that the cut on McCoy’s foot was the reason why he didn’t practice.

It wasn’t clear how McCoy suffered the injury, or how much time he could miss.

Robert Griffin III, who has served as third-string quarterback since Kirk Cousins took over as the starter late in the preseason, handled second quarterback duties during Monday’s practice.
