Injury roundup: Colt McCoy hurt in Redskins' game

Colt McCoy was shaky to play all week for the Washington Redskins because of a neck injury. Once the action started in New York, it didn't take long for him to get hurt again.

McCoy left in the first quarter and did not return to the Redskins' game against the Giants. Robert Griffin III entered the game and got off to a hot start.

McCoy wasn't the only QB that exited Sunday. Jake Locker exited the Titans' game during the second quarter with a shoulder injury and never returned. Charlie Whitehurst replaced him. 

Here are the other injuries we're tracking in Week 15:

  1. Houston Texans starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick injured his leg against the Indianapolis Colts and was quickly ruled out. Fitzpatrick suffered a broken leg, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a team source.

Tom Savage took over at quarterback with Houston's season on the line. Savage took a shot to the knee on the second-to-last play of the game, causing him some discomfort in his knee. Savage will have an MRI, according to Rapoport, per a team source.
