The Washington Redskins will be without one of their top WRs this season. Ian Rapoport reported that second-year receiver Kelvin Harmon tore his ACL while training. Harmon confirmed the report, and said he had surgery last week.
Harmon was drafted in the 6th round last year, and being projected to go a lot higher in the draft. He had 30 receptions for 365 yards, and added a pass for 11 yards to his resume. He was poised to potentially play a bigger role in the offense this year. The Redskins #1 WR is fellow second-year WR Terry McLaurin who had a breakout rookie season. After that it’s pretty much open. Steven Sims Jr. played very well at the end of year, and Washington drafted Antonio Gandy-Golden this year. The Redskins also lost WR Emanuel Hall for the season last month due to a Achilles tear while working out.
#Redskins WR Kelvin Harmon tore his ACL while training prior to camp, sources say. The promising former sixth rounder, who had 30 catches for 365 yards last season as a rookie, now has eyes on 2021.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 14, 2020
Confirmed that Harmon tore his ACL. Tough blow for second-year WR; would have definitely helped this season. https://t.co/V6FeVMNZQz— John Keim (@john_keim) July 14, 2020
