Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy said he has returned to the team’s practice facility and is rehabilitating his leg after two recent surgeries kept him away from offseason workouts. McCoy, who cracked his fibula last December, originally had an operation to repair the injury with the hope of returning before season’s end. But in the haste to rush back, complications have forced two additional procedures.
McCoy reiterated on Monday what he said a week ago: that he is recovering well from the latest procedure and hopes he can participate in the team’s early-June minicamp and the last OTA, which will be held a week later. He expects to be fully-recovered by training camp
McCoy will be in a three-man competition for the starting job, with first-round pick Dwayne Haskins and Case Keenum, who was picked up in a March trade with Denver. The advantage McCoy has in the fight with Haskins and Keenum is that he knows the team’s offense, having spent the last four seasons with Coach Jay Gruden. But the fact his last two chances to start were ended by injury helped lead Washington to draft Haskins as the long term replacement for Alex Smith, who is not expected to come back from the compound leg fracture he suffered in November.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported that McCoy had returned to OTAs.
