Colt McCoy Headed to Hospital to Get Neck Sprain Examined

Redskins QB Colt McCoy was sent to get his neck checked after today's shutout loss

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Colt McCoy was sacked by Robert Quinn with 6:54 left in the 4th Quarter during the Redskins 2nd to last drive of the game.  Kory Lichtensteiger snapped the ball early and low and Quinn was able to shoot around left tackle Trent Williams and deliver a vicious, clubbing blindside sack on McCoy.  Three plays later, McCoy was intercepted at the Rams 2 yard line after the Redskins went for it on 4th down.  McCoy returned for the next drive, only to be sacked and driven into the ground again on the first play, his 6th sack for the day.  Robert Griffin III made his return to the field shortly after and finished the game in Redskins fashion.

McCoy was scheduled to speak to the media after Head Coach Jay Gruden, but due to the injury and needing to get examined, that was cancelled.  During Jay Gruden's presser he mentioned McCoy's injury when asked about who will start going forward.  Gruden said the coaches will evaluate the game film to determine why he has been ineffective running the offense, and also evaluate his injury before determining who will start next week.

The blindside sack from Robert Quinn:

Three weeks ago when I was at the Buccaneers game the booing, and vile chants by mothers and their kids were overwhelming towards Robert Griffin III were overwhelming and constant throughout the game.  This week it was a little different.
