In just his second start of the season, Jim Ned graduate and Big Country native Colt McCoy broke his right leg on Monday night in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The injury will cause McCoy to miss the rest of the Washington Redskins' season, according to ESPN.

McCoy hurt his leg on the last play of the first quarter when he scrambled, slipped and his leg swung and hit the leg of an charging Eagle defender.

He finished the offensive series, jogged off the field, and walked around on the sideline before going into the locker room.

McCoy became Washington's starting quarterback when Alex Smith broke his leg during a loss to the Houston Texans on November 18.

The 32-year old started on Thanksgiving Day at the Dallas Cowboys. He threw two touchdowns and three interceptions in the Redskins' 31-23 loss to the Cowboys.

Mark Sanchez came into the game as quarterback for Washington.

Monday night's game was McCoy's 27th start of his 8-year career.
