Colt on IR — out for season

Unfortunately, not really surprising news ….

The Washington Redskins say they’ve decided to put quarterback Colt Brennan on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ruling him out for the season.

The team reported on its Web site Saturday that Brennan aggravated a nagging hamstring problem during Thursday night’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Brennan and Chase Daniel spent the preseason battling for the third-string job.

Still, Daniel will not make the 53-man roster and is unlikely to be a practice squad candidate, a team source told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

The Redskins plan to carry just 2 quarterbacks on the 53-man roster — Jason Campbell and Todd Collins.

With the news that the Skins are behind Campbell, and Collins is the backup plan should he falter, it seemed unlikely that Colt would have seen any significant playing time (at least in the first half of the season — if things faltered, who knows?).


One response to “Colt on IR — out for season

  1. Though not a Redskins fan, I was at the Skins-Jaguars game on Thursday and was pleasantly surprised to see how well Colt Brennan was throwing the ball. This came after a poor performance by Jason Campbell and a very lackluster showing by rookie Chase Daniel. Colt’s play was easily the best of the three quarterbacks… and even though I don’t have a dog in the fight, I can’t for the life of me understand how Colt isn’t in consideration for the starting job in Washington. Look for Campbell to have another mediocre year…
