Bashaud Breeland Hurts Knee During Practice
Redskins cornerback Bashaud Breeland’s bad day got worse this afternoon. The second-year corner got hurt in 1-on-1’s while trying to change directions and come back upfield towards the ball. After spending several minutes down on the field Breeland was carted off to the team’s facilities. Breeland appeared to be holding the back of his knee.
Breeland was already in the news earlier today after being suspended one game for an incident last offseason.
More details will be available after practice…check back for updates.
