Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy just can't catch a break in his recovery from a broken leg. 

Washington head coach Jay Gruden told reporters Monday McCoy will miss all of OTAs, and won't be ready to return until "hopefully training camp."

Now they're calling it a knee thing? Hmmmm. Is that what they've been suggesting it is? Either way...what a mess. Poor Colt.

McCoy's injury situation has dragged on longer than many anticipated since the 32-year old broke his fibula in a game against the Eagles last December. The Redskins did a procedure on him shortly after he suffered the injury to try and get McCoy back on the field before the end of the 2018 season, but that proved unsuccessful. 

Fans grew concerned when McCoy was seen on crutches at an IndyCar race in March, and as it turns out, McCoy has now had a total of three surgeries on the leg, the most recent procedure coming in April. 
After the procedure, Gruden said McCoy should be ready by OTAs, but his comments Monday confirmed that is no longer the case, and we likely won't see McCoy practicing with the team until training camp later this summer.
