UPDATE: Kouandjio to have surgery to repair torn quad

The injury bug is already going around at Redskins Park. Last year saw the Redskins lose 20+ players for the season due to various injuries, and plenty of new faces off the streets to replace them. Arie Kouandjio was an old face they re-signed after being cut before the season started. He went on to start 6 games at the end of the year and was in competition for a spot on the line.

Now it looks like his season could be over before it even starts. JP Finley reports that Kouandjio suffered a torn quad that could take 8 months to heal. If the report is true, Kouandjio's season is over and the Redskins lose a player on the offensive line. Washington re-signed Shawn Lauvao to a cheap, 1-year deal this week. The team will also try swing OT Ty Nsekhe at guard, along with the motley crew of backups, UDFAs, and others trying to earn a roster spot.
