There’s a good reason Colt McCoy‘s on crutches.
The Washington quarterback, who broke his fibula on Dec. 4 against the Eagles and threatened to play late in the season if the playoffs were on the line, will have a longer recovery.
According to Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic, McCoy had another surgery on his right leg. He described it as “preventative maintenance” (a description most people put on things like haircuts rather than leg surgeries).
While the timing of the procedure is unknown, he’s expected to be ready for offseason work.
McCoy created some concern when he showed up on crutches to give the “start your engines” call at yesterday’s IndyCar event in Austin, Texas.
