Jason Hatcher Getting Knee Scoped, Out 4-6 Weeks

Hatcher will be visiting everyone's favorite knee doctor.

Jason Hatcher will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee with Dr. James Andrews, and is expected to be out 4-6 weeks.  That time table could jeopardize his participation in Redskins Training Camp which starts July 24th in Richmond.  Camp runs from July 24th-August 11th.

Hatcher was one of the Redskins biggest free agent acquisitions this year, and will turn 32 this year.  Knee surgery is not a good start to his Redskins career.  Hatcher was specifically brought in to get after the QB, and disrupt the line of scrimmage as the Redskins try to shift to a 1 gap system.  The age and injury history of the Redskins defensive line was a concern before free agency and the draft, and is still a concern now.

[UPDATE: 6/19/14 3:45PM] Jason Hatcher's surgery is complete.
