No coach ever wants to have to resort to an emergency quarterback.
But with every player being jsut one play away from injury, every team in the NFL needs to have a backup plan when the backup plan doesn't work.
On Thursday, Jay Gruden revealed his plans for an emergency quarterback.
"We're working on that right now," he told reporter's during his afternoon press conference. "We're putting a package together for somebody. It's either going to be Jordan Reed or (Jamison) Crowder."

Redskins coach Jay Gruden may have tipped his hand on how many running backs the Redskins will carry. Here is what he said when asked about the status of Evan Royster, who has been with the team as a reserve running back since they drafted him in 2011.
"He's in competition with the rest of them. Right now, we have obviously Alfred [Morris] as the slam dunk and then we have Roy [Helu] who's had a good camp and then we're looking for the other two to step up.”
The emphasis is added. Gruden has said previously that he is looking forward to what fullback Darrel Young can do in his offense so Young, Morris, Helu are locks. Gruden said that they are looking for two more so it looks like the plan is to carry five total running backs.
While nothing is etched in stone, it looks like Helu's job is safe and he should be the third down back with a chance to catch some passes in this offense. Some believed that he would lose out to Thompson, who now looks like he's in a battle to make the team. Young has been a target in the red zone in the past from time to time but never enough to make him fantasy worthy but it sounds like he could have some sort of role again.

"He's a very good fullback," Gruden said. "He can run, he can catch. We're excited about having him ... .The personnel will vary, but DY will be a major part of this offense."
