Colt McCoy throws for touchdown after Alex Smith injury

Alex Smith Was Carted Off With An Ugly Looking Ankle Injury Against Houston (UPDATED)

Smith broke the tibia and fibula in his right leg while being dragged to the ground in the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans, immediately ending his campaign in stomach-turning, gruesome fashion.

According to NFL.com, the Redskins have chose to sign Mark Sanchez, who will serve as Colt McCoy's backup in Washington.

McCoy, 32, is in his fifth year with Washington. His first start will come Thursday in Dallas, with first-place on the line.

The Washington Redskins reportedly brought in Sanchez along with Kellen Clemens, T.J. Yates, EJ Manuel and Josh Johnson. Redskins offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh spent four seasons as Sanchez's QB coach in NY (2009-12).

Carlos Ghosn arrested; Nissan likely to sack him
As per Bloomberg, Carlos Ghosn was paid $2 million by Mitsubishi, $8.5 million by Renault and $6.5 million by Nissan annually. Nicknamed Le Cost Killer, Brazil-born Ghosn, 64, is known for overhauling Renault and Nissan starting in the nineties.

Mark Sanchez is a play away from quarterbacking a division leader.

Sanchez apparently beat out at least National Football League flameouts EJ Manuel and TJ Yates to be in the wings for a Washington squad that is controlling the NFC East but just had its season rocked. Yet here he is, ready to play for the Redskins during their playoff push. The goal is to win games and Smith has done exactly that.

The only way the NFL's decision to blackball Kaepernick could look more obvious is if Nathan Peterman gets another job following his release from the Bills.
