Two of the most popular names for the Washington Redskins this training camp have been Trent Williams and Derrius Guice, though neither has seen the field for any preseason action thus far. He is still dealing with problems related to his surgically repaired right leg. McCoy initially suffered the injury, a broken leg, in the team's Week 13 meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles last season. "We don't know yet".

Though the prognosis for McCoy seems problematic, Jay Gruden said that he "doesn't anticipate McCoy will be out too long".

With McCoy expected to miss more time, Schefter notes that veteran Case Keenum is now on pace to be the Week 1 starter.

McCoy broke his right fibula during a December 3 game against the Eagles last season, and complications during his recovery, which included three surgeries, forced him to miss all offseason team activities, plus the team's first two preseason games. Keenum, a seven-year veteran entering his first season in Washington, has bounced around the league but carries plenty of starting experience. That was nobody's fault, just a fluke deal that something else happened. "He'll do whatever he can to get right, we've just got to get it right first". In the preseason, he's gone 7-for-16 for 112 yards and one touchdown.
