The Washington Redskins are once again in the market for a backup quarterback after Colt McCoy suffered a fractured fibula just two weeks after starter Alex Smith broke his leg. Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the National Football League in October of 2017, alleging an organized effort to keep him off a roster as a result of his protests.
"There's not a lot of time to get a brand-new quarterback and system installed in a couple of days", he said.
Gruden added: "He's been talked about and discussed, but we'll probably go in a different direction".
"Not that Colin can't do some of the things I'm talking about".
"Sanchez had experience in a pro-style offense".
Against the Eagles, the 32-year-old Sanchez compiled a passer rating of 53.7, going 13 for 21 for only 100 yards with one interception and one fumble that he managed to recover.
"It's about evaluating the skill set", Gruden said. Yates before going with Sanchez.
Gruden said McCoy would not go on injured reserve immediately because there is a slight chance he might be able to return to action by Week 17.
Several owners, coaches and team executives have been called to testify, and the case is scheduled to go to trial.
