We just got a tip that defensive end Phillip Daniels tore at least the ACL in his left knee. He just came into Redskin Park with a big brace on his leg and on crutches. His wife came to pick him up and take him home.
The source added that the Redskins might be reacting by trying to trade for Dolphins standout end Jason Taylor, who’s on the outs with new boss Bill Parcells in Miami.
Taylor, who’ll be 34 in September, leads all active passrushers with 117 sacks. He had 11 last year, ranking seventh in the NFL. Taylor’s agent, Gary Wichard, is pals with Redskins front office chief Vinny Cerrato.

We just got confirmation that it’s a torn ACL.
You can’t make this stuff up. As this is getting typed, second-year defensive end Alex Buzbee is getting carted off the field with an injured ankle. More to come.
