Schefter adds that McCoy’s recovery is “going well” and will participate “to some extent” by minicamp, so it is clear he’s on his way to a full recovery.

McCoy would have to beat out Case Keenum and first-round pick Dwayne Haskins to be the team’s 2019 starter.
McCoy, 32, is a former third-round pick out of Texas by the Browns back in 2010. He was traded from Cleveland to the 49ers back in 2013 and later signed on with Washington as an unrestricted free agent in 2014.
McCoy stands to make a base salary of $3 million for the 2019 season before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2020.
In 2018, McCoy appeared in three games for the Redskins and completed 63 percent of his passes for 372 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions.
