THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Washington Redskins outside linebacker Marcus Washington’s season ended yesterday when the team placed him on injured reserve because of a sprained left knee.

On Friday, Washington was ruled out of today’s game at St. Louis because of the injury, sustained late in last week’s 16-10 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Since joining the Redskins in 2004, Washington has not missed a game. It marks only the second game in seven NFL seasons that he has missed because of injury.

To fill Washington’s spot on the roster, the Redskins signed fullback Nehemiah Broughton from the practice squad, where he has spent the entire season. Broughton played four games last year for the Redskins.

Washington finishes the season with 86 tackles, 2 sacks and two fumble recoveries. Jeff Posey, Warrick Holdman and rookie Rocky McIntosh are all candidates to start in Washington’s place against the Rams.
