Robert Davis the latest Redskins player with season-ending leg injury
Wide receiver Robert Davis is out for the 2018 season with a torn PCL, Jay Gruden announced.
Davis suffered the injury during Saturday’s practice when he came down to the ground hard on a passing play. He will need surgery and a 9- to 12-month rehab, Gruden said.
After running back Derrius Guice and tight end Manasseh Garner tore ACLs in Thursday night’s preseason opener at New England, Davis was the third Redskin in three days to see his 2018 season cut short.
“He went up for the ball yesterday and ... he landed awkwardly on his knee,” Gruden said.
Previous reports said Davis broke his tibia and tore his LCL.
Against the Patriots, Davis caught three of his four targets and gained 35 yards receiving, second-most on the team, with a long of 20 yards. He was competing for a depth spot on the roster with Maurice Harris and some rookies like Trey Quinn and Cam Sims.
