ESPN 980 Redskins Insider Craig Hoffman confirms the worst – LB Junior Galette has suffered a torn achilles and is out for the season.
Galette faces a six-to-eight month rehabilitation, a source told ESPN.com’s John Keim.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden didn’t confirm the Achilles tear but told reporters earlier Wednesday that Galette suffered a left ankle/foot injury.
“I’m very concerned,” Gruden said.
Galette, 27, was released by the New Orleans Saints earlier this summer, less than a year after they signed him to an extension worth up to $41 million. (More at ESPN.com)
