Redskins to sign Mark Sanchez to be backup QB

Redskins to shy away from RPOs with Colt Mc Coy starting

Theismann already had his career-ending injury on his mind before Smith's injury as it happened 33 years ago to the day.

Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith was taken to the hospital after being carted off the field with a leg injury against the Giants on Sunday.

Singer Diddy’s baby mama, Kim Porter, dies at 47
As word of Porter's shocking death circulated throughout social media, entertainers sent their condolences. Atlanta native, T.I. posted, "We'll always love you and cherish your attractive spirit".

Sanchez, the fifth-overall pick in 2009, likely benefited from familiar faces in Washington. Washington's passing game coordinator Kevin O'Connell is also familiar with Sanchez and that's because he backed him up for two seasons in NY.

The Chiefs traded Smith to Washington in the offseason after getting a glimpse of Patrick Mahomes in Week 17 past year, when he dazzled in his starting debut against Denver.

Redskins offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh was the quarterbacks coach with the New York Jets from 2009-12 while Sanchez was the starter. Sanchez's last start came in 2015, while McCoy's last start came in 2014.

Sanchez, 32, spent part of last season with the Chicago Bears and has not been with a team this season. Now, Washington has to move on and play Thanksgiving afternoon against the Dallas Cowboys, who find themselves with ample life in the East.
