EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. | Already banged up plenty on defense, the Washington Redskins can ill afford more injuries. But they got one late in the first quarter Sunday at the New York Giants.

On a second-and-goal play, tight end Fred Davis appeared to injure his left leg. Davis tried to hop off the field before stopping. He needed assistance to get to the sideline.


It was announced that Davis suffered an injury to his left Achilles tendon and was out for the game.

Davis then spent time on the trainers’ table being looked at before hopping onto a cart. He put no pressure on his left leg.

The injury occurred on the Redskins’ first drive of the game, which included 17 plays and 93 yards in 9:11. It ended in a 20-yard field goal by Kai Forbath. Davis committed an illegal shift penalty earlier that negated a touchdown.
