Colt McCoy’s recovery from a fractured fibula appears to be going well. The Redskins quarterback is back for organized team activities, and he is expected to participate to some extent by minicamp and be fully ready by training camp, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
McCoy broke his right fibula on Dec. 3 in a 28-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, ending his season in only his second start. He was the second Redskins starting quarterback to suffer the same injury after Alex Smith broke his fibula and tibia in Week 11 and now faces quaestions about if he will be able to play again.
Prior to playing last season, McCoy attempted just 11 passes between the start of 2015 and Week 10 of the past year, playing behind Kirk Cousins and Smith. He was in his fifth year under coach Jay Gruden’s system, though, and the staff believed he could lead an effective offense because of that.
