Jay Gruden on losing streak We can't lose confidence'have to practice harder USA Today Sports

The Redskins signed journeyman quarterback Josh Johnson to backup Mark Sanchez, leaving many to wonder why the team wouldn't sign Colin Kaepernick.

Washington head coach Jay Gruden told reporters this week the team had discussed Kaepernick as an option after losing its top two quarterbacks - Alex Smith and Colt McCoy - to injury, but concluded it would be too hard to fit Kaepernick into the offense quickly.

Kaepernick, who sparked controversy around the league when he made a decision to kneel during the national anthem in protest of perceived racial injustice across the USA, has reportedly been working out and staying prepped in ready should an NFL team call his phone.

The perpetual free-agent curiosity, who is alleging the NFL has blackballed him following his spearheading the protests during the national anthems that so consumed the league, would play for Washington if asked, sources told Yahoo Sports on Sunday.

It appears that the Washington Redskins chose to sign Mark Sanchez in favour of Kaepernick.

Meng, he said, had misled US banks into thinking that Huawei and Skycom were separate when, in fact, "Skycom was Huawei". Her family assured the court she would remain in Vancouver if she was granted bail, according to the court documents.

"No call for a job, no call for a tryout, no calls period - nothing", one source said.

"Just football, strictly football", Gruden said. This despite Kaepernick having run a Super Bowl offense under Jim Harbaugh that contained zone reads and featured other similarities to the scheme now run in Washington. "He's been talked about, but we'll probably go in a different direction". Not that Colin can't do some of the things we've talked about. "We want someone with a little more familiarity".

The Redskins are 6-7 after Sunday's loss to the New York Giants.

Johnson led two scoring drives and was 11-of-16 passing for 195 yards, a touchdown and an interception, while rushing for 45 yards and a score. Johnson was throwing his first regular-season pass in the National Football League since 2013.
