"He's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go in a different direction".
Added Gruden: "You want to have somebody with a similar skillset to the quarterback you have".
"Not a lot of time to really get a brand new quarterback and new system installed and taught in a couple of days of practice", Gruden said.
Down to Mark Sanchez on their quarterback depth chart, the Redskins signed veteran Josh Johnson on Tuesday to serve as the backup QB the remainder of the season.
Backup quarterback Colt McCoy fractured his right fibula during Monday's 28-13 loss to the Eagles, leaving Mark Sanchez as the lone quarterback left on the team.
Meanwhile, Colt McCoy, making his second start in place of Alex Smith, reportedly sustained a broken fibula in the second quarter of the game. "If it was Week 1, there would be a better possibility". "It's very hard. Whoever the backup is, they have to have skill sets similar to Mark, that he can fit into the plays we're going to run vs. the Giants". The Redskins are 6-6 and have lost four of their past five games.
Sanchez had only about 20 percent of the Redskins' playbook at his disposal when he replaced McCoy on Monday night. And yet again, they have the opportunity to essentially end the season of an NFC East rival and keep pace with the resurgent Cowboys.
