Jason Taylor has surgery, out Sunday

ESPN'S Chris Mortenson is reporting on SportsCenter that Jason Taylor is going to be out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys after under going a "knee procedure." I'm looking for internet sources now.

[Note by TexSkins, 09/22/08 12:01 PM CDT ] Leave it up to JaLaCa over at Redskins Insider to have the scoop. Here's what he says:

Defensive end Jason Taylor will be out for this week's Dallas game after having blood released from his left calf muscle, Coach Jim Zorn said.

Taylor was kicked in the calf during the second quarter in yesterday's 24-17 victory over Arizona, but returned to play the entire game. He did not realize he had a problem until last night, Zorn said, when blood began to pool in the leg.

It was reported that he woke up with pain in the knee and team doctors advised he undergo this procedure to avoid "permanent nerve damage." Apparently, there was swelling in the shin area and doctors wanted to make an incision to alleviate it... I dunno.

I'm going to post this and then continue to look for source material. Not good news for the Skins's chances against a tough Cowboys team. It was said he would only miss 1 week. Updates as I know more.
