Trent Murphy Will Miss the Entire 2017 Season With Torn ACL/MCL

Redskins LB Trent Murphy Will Miss the Entire 2017 Season With Torn ACL/MCL

Washington Redskins linebacker Trent Murphy is coming off of a nine-sack season in which he dealt with adversity every step of the way. Murphy was asked before the 2016 season to add more weight in order to transition to playing defensive end for the Redskins. Murphy did as he was told and added the weight, only to be asked a few weeks later to cut the weight and go back to linebacker after Junior Galette injured himself again.

In the aftermath of adding and then cutting weight, Murphy found himself in trouble for using a weight-cutting, over-the-counter additive that also happened to be on the league’s banned list of substances. The result: a four-game suspension that Trent has owned and attempted to move on from graciously.

As it turns out, that four-game suspension is the least of Murphy’s worries now, as the fourth-year linebacker was hurt in last night’s preseason opener against the Ravens. Murphy’s MRI on Thursday showed that he tore his ACL and MCL in his knee and will miss the entire 2017 season.

Murphy was having a stellar camp despite the fact that he was going to have to miss the season’s first four games.

Redskins safety Su’a Cravens had an MRI Friday as well, and the results showed that Cravens simply “tweaked” his knee and will miss two to three weeks while he recovers.
