McCoy was injured on a scramble on the final play of the first quarter, his leg whipping around and hitting Eagles’ safey Malcom Jenkins. McCoy finished the last two plays of the series and was seen limping along the sideline before being escorted to the locker room, The Washington Post reports. 

Mark Sanchez replaced McCoy under center.

McCoy is the second Redskins quarterback injured this year. Alex Smith broke his leg in November during a game against the Houston Texans.
