Redskins’ Davis Sprains Knee
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) _ Washington running back Stephen Davis, the NFC’s leading rusher, left the Redskins’ game with a sprained knee Saturday after running for 119 yards in the first half against the Detroit Lions.
Davis, who entered the game nursing a sore ankle, had 15 carries and touchdown runs of 1 and 4 yards when he was injured on a third-down run with 10 minutes left in the second quarter.
The Redskins were leading 17-0 when Davis left the game.
It was Davis’ first game since he sprained an ankle Dec. 19 at Indianapolis.
