The Washington Redskins lost quarterback Colt McCoy to a broken fibula during Monday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

He’s the second Redskins quarterback to go down with a season-ending injury — joining starter Alex Smith.

In an interesting turn, veteran Mark Sanchez will likely be the starter for the remainder of the season. This also means Washington will have to bring in another veteran quarterback in free agency.

Obviously, the media’s focus will turn to Super Bowl signal caller Colin Kaepernick. He’s been unemployed since the 2016 season after starting the now infamous national anthem protests around the league.

As unrealistic as it might be for Washington to sign Kaepernick, it’s equally ridiculous to ignore the possibility. After all, this is a team that just recently claimed Reuben Foster off waivers. How in the world could the optics surrounding a Kaepernick signing compare to that?

Well, Twitter wants to have a word with you. Here, fans are clamoring for Washington to bite the bullet and sign the embattled Kaepernick.
