Given the way Washington plays, the team will miss the person more than the numbers with the shift from Smith to McCoy.

McCoy described himself as "rusty" in last week's loss to the Texans.

Coach Jay Gruden said he'll need to see "significant improvement" from Williams, Chris Thompson, Jamison Crowder and Quinton Dunbar before Thursday's game.

The former Redskins wide receiver says officials botched two calls in the final two minutes of Sunday's loss.

There's a lot at stake for the Washington Redskins during a short week against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. The team will focus on physical recovery as it squeezes the mental preparation into just three days.

No one seems to think Washington will be any worse off with McCoy replacing the injured Alex Smith.

Smith suffered a horrific leg injury Sunday afternoon at FedEx Field. The CBS crew showed only one replay.

“We’re all sick and heartbroken over Alex," says Coach Jay Gruden on the day the team signed Mark Sanchez to back up quarterback Colt McCoy. "But when something like this happens you have to move on."

Redskins don't know if Trent Williams, Chris Thompson, Jamison Crowder and Quinton Dunbar will be ready in time for Thursday's game versus the Cowboys.

With Alex Smith out for the season, Washington signed the former Jets signal-caller as a veteran backup.

Gladiator mentality among players fosters deep, emotional empathy — a tough bond they all share, a bargain they can’t break.

The Redskins cornerback said he thought he played perfect technique on a play he was flagged for holding. The call significantly cut into Washington's comeback chances.
