Colt McCoy held the No. 1 spot Sunday when the Washington Redskins released their first depth chart of training camp.

Coming back from a broken leg suffered last December, the 32-year-old veteran is followed by offseason trade acquisition Case Keenum at No. 2 and first-round draft pick Dwayne Haskins at No. 3.

“Colt’s got the most experience in the system, but he still hasn’t played a whole lot,” coach Jay Gruden said. “He hasn’t taken a lot of reps. Last year it was all about Alex (Smith), the year before that it was all about Kirk (Cousins), and getting them ready.

“Case has all the reps, but he doesn’t have much experience in the system. He’s doing a nice job, and obviously Dwayne is a rookie. All three of them have shown flashes of being really good and really productive, and all three have shown flashes of, ‘Hey, we’ve got to get better.'”

McCoy, who is in his fifth season with the Redskins, appeared in three games (two starts) last season before suffering a fractured fibula in a Week 12 loss at Philadelphia.

McCoy has passed for 5,958 yards, 29 touchdowns and 26 interceptions in 38 games with the Cleveland Browns (2010-12), San Francisco 49ers (2013) and Redskins. He has a 7-20 record as a starter.

Keenum, 31, passed for 3,890 yards, 18 touchdowns and 15 picks and went 6-10 as the starter for Denver last season. The Broncos traded him to Washington in March.

Haskins, 22, was the 15th overall pick out of Ohio State. He passed for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns last season for the Buckeyes and finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting.

The Redskins open their preseason schedule Thursday night at Cleveland.
