Even the most corrupt of sports franchises (The Redskins) and the biggest squid of an owner (Dan Snyder) should do the bare minimum and take care of the health of their players, don't ya think? We're giving them too much credit here.
Backup quarterback slash starter backslash who the fuck really knows or cares anymore Colt McCoy will sit out tonight's (Thursday's) preseason game because his injury from LAST DECEMBER is still bothering him. Seriously.
Keep in mind this isn't the worst injury the Redskins have somehow botched recently. Something sketchy is going on there, and I'm not even gonna mention RG3.
McCoy broke his leg last season, and the team basically didn't give it enough time to fully heal before putting him back on the field. Sound familiar? He had a third "minor surgical procedure" on his leg just this spring, which for a basic broken leg... sure seems like a lot. McCoy was just the second Redskins quarterback to break his leg and have it become extremely complicated afterwards. Alex Smith suffered a horrific leg injury last season, only to battle a post-op infection that he's still recovering from. He says he wants to play football again, but I highly doubt he will.
Let's keep going, shall we? Derrius Guice, their supposed new star player, tore his ACL last preseason and is also ruled out for tonight's game and still hasn't been cleared by the medical staff to play. He also needed three surgeries, and had to be on a fucking IV all day.
There's more. Su'a Cravens almost retired because of how badly the Redskins handled his concussions, then promptly called them out for being shady and "withholding information." DeAngelo Hall hated the training staff. Trent Williams is literally holding out and refuses to play because he hates the training staff.
Not trying to point any fingers here (I totally am) but someone needs to check this shit out pronto before the entire team's heads fall off or something equally as tragic.
