The 32-year-old quarterback injured his right leg in the first half of the Redskins' Monday Night Football battle with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fox Sports tweeted the update to McCoy's status around halftime. In just his second start of the season, McCoy broke his leg.

But that didn't stop McCoy from staying on the field for a few more plays, despite eventually finding out that he had suffered a fractured fibula.

Colt McCoy doesn't have a lot of go to options in the passing game, but when he needs help, he can always count the talented tight duo of Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis.

Mark Sanchez replaced McCoy under center. 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. His season is over.

Washington's injury woes at the quarterback position continued on Monday night. However, if they're going to overtake the Cowboys and win the division, they will need to do so while being led by Mark Sanchez.
