Trent Murphy Suffers Knee Sprain, Leaves Game

Redskins Doug Williams maintains that 2017 roster is the best

Redskins Doug Williams maintains that 2017 roster is the best

He was helped off the field by members of Washington's medical staff and didn't speak to the media after the game.

Murphy was already slated to miss the first four games of the season after being suspended for violating the NFL's PEDs policy.

Now, he'll miss the entire season after suffering a torn ACL in last night's preseason opener.

The injury occurred in the first quarter when Murphy was involved in a third-down stop against the Ravens offense.

Murphy is entering his fourth season with the Redskins after being the team's top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Stanford.

Murphy, 26, was second on the Redskins with nine sacks previous year, trailing only Ryan Kerrigan.

Trent Murphy's uphill climb to get ready for the 2017 Washington Redskins' season just got a lot steeper. ESPN's John Keim reported that Cravens "tweaked" an old college injury in his knee and should be better in two or three weeks, which would have Cravens back around the start of the regular season or slightly before.

Rookie Ryan Anderson, Lynden Trail and Chris Carter will each see extended playing time in the absence of veterans.
