Redskins have 'discussed' bringing in Kaepernick: Coach

McCoy expected to miss rest of season

Kaepernick has not played since January 2017 after protesting against racial injustice and police brutality by kneeling during the USA national anthem. His camp has been actively pursuing a collusion suit against the NFL owners, alleging that Kaepernick has had work opportunities closed off to him, due to his activism on the national stage.

Following a season-ending injury to quarterback Colt McCoy in Monday night's 28-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington is now expected to sign Josh Johnson.

Gruden said the Redskins would be bringing in a couple of unemployed quarterbacks for workouts later Tuesday and then would decide among them and those street free agents that tried out last month when Sanchez was signed.

When Kaepernick's case is eventually heard, that may be the external catalyst for teams to sign him, one that Sherman says they now lack.

So we would assume that today's third and final poster offers yet more clues at new equipment coming to the game in Season 7. Many are speculating that season seven will be winter-themed, with most of the images featuring a winter aesthetic.

Gruden added: "He's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go in a different direction".

Gruden said McCoy had surgery Tuesday but would not go on injured reserve immediately because there is a chance he might be able to return before the season ends. But when we had a short week going to Dallas [on Thanksgiving] you had to have someone in here who had some similar conceptual awareness that we had with Colt.

"In order to utilize someone like Colin Kaepernick's skill set, you're talking about a whole new group of formations and run concepts", Gruden said. But somebody with a little bit of familiarity.
