As the rest of Rapoport's tweet went on say, there are some things to work out first. Johnson is also the first pick of the San Diego Fleet of the Alliance of American Football, so he will at least temporarily need to get out of that to back up Sanchez.
The Washington Redskins lost another quarterback. They lost another game, too. And a season that started to look promising a month ago now appears headed for a tough finish.
Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy broke his right fibula Monday in a 28-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, ending his season in only his second start this year. He's also the second Redskins starting quarterback to suffer such a fate. Alex Smith broke his fibula and tibia in Week 11.

Alex Smith‘s lower leg injury was a compound fracture, meaning the bone broke through the skin, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Washington quarterback underwent surgery Sunday night, and trauma surgeons discovered a spiral fracture, defined as a long bone broken by a rotational force.
