NFL News & Rumors:
Coming off a tough loss this afternoon to St. Louis, the Redskins received more bad news as defensive end Adam Carriker will likely be out for a significant amount of time after suffering a serious knee injury.
Carriker, 28, is expected to undergo a MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injury but head coach Mike Shanahan has already indicated that the injury is severe enough to expect an extended absence, potentially the remainder of the season. Mike Jones of the Washington Post is reporting that surgery to repair the damage in Carriker’s knee is expected regardless of the outcome of the MRI.
In his fifth season as a professional, Carriker has only missed one game up to now, and has totaled 84 tackles, nine sacks, and three fumble recoveries. Carriker is in first season of the four year, $20 million deal he signed with the Redskins in the off-season.
