Bad news for the Redskins defense

NFL: Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins have reportedly lost OLB Trent Murphy for the season with a torn ACL. Murphy was injured in last night’s preseason loss to the Ravens when a Baltimore player rolled up on his leg. Murphy was already set to miss the first 4 games of the year due to a suspension for a PEDs violation. Now the Redskins will look to replace a player who had 9 sacks, 47 tackles, and 3 forced fumbles last season. Murphy is on the last year of his rookie contract with the Redskins.

UPDATE: Murphy also tore his MCL
