The neck injury suffered by Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy is not concerned to be a long-term issue.
McCoy was injured in the fourth quarter of the Redskins’ 24-0 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. The team said McCoy has a sprained neck and that he will see specialists to determine the extent of the injury.
Rapoport says the team will see how the injury progresses through the week before making any call on if McCoy will start Sunday’s game against the New York Giants.
McCoy was 20-of-32 for 199 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions against St. Louis. He was replaced late in the fourth quarter by Robert Griffin III. In his four games this season, McCoy has completed 72 percent of his passes for 1,018 yards, with four touchdowns and three interceptions.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday that Griffin would get the start against New York if McCoy is not able to play.
