Redskins Injury Report: Sundberg, Kehl out for the Year With Knee Injuries
- Updated: October 14, 2013
Redskins Injury Report
After a game in which the Washington Redskins special teams were already reeling from, they now will have to move forward without two key players.
MRI’s performed on Monday showed that linebacker Bryan Kehl suffered a torn left ACL in Sunday night’s loss to Dallas and will miss the rest of the 2013 season, Coach Mike Shanahan said in his weekly news conference at Redskins Park. Long snapper Nick Sundberg has also been lost for the year with a knee injury.
Kehl said Sunday night that he would have been in position to tackle Dwayne Harris on the 86-yard punt return for a touchdown. Instead, Kehl felt something “pop” in his knee as he cut to make the hit and Harris burst into the open field.
Sundberg suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee. The Redskins will likely sign a full-time replacement just as they did last season when Sundberg was sidelined for eight games with a broken arm.
“Anytime you lose a guy that you count on, it takes some work, it takes some timing,” Shanahan said. “Whether it’s on extra points and field goals, if it’s on punts, it does takes some time.”
Shanahan did not provide any new information on cornerback David Amerson, who suffered a concussion when he was hit helmet-to-helmet on kickoff coverage against the Cowboys.
“We’ll monitored that day-by-day and go through the protocol that we usually do with concussions,” Shanahan said of the rookie. “It was definitely helmet-to-helmet. David, in that position, he’s going to learn in time that he’s got to hit that hole a little it harder. He can’t wait. He’s got an excellent opportunity to go in there and make the play. That’s just a guy with a little inexperience. Next time he’s in that position, he’ll make the tackle.”
