The good news for Colt Brennan is that he isn’t getting a visit from the Turk on Saturday. The bad news is that he isn’t going to play at all for the Redskins this season.
Redskins editorial director Larry Weisman reports that the quarterback will be placed on injured reserve after an MRI revealed a torn hamstring. Brennan was forced to leave Thursday night’s preseason finale after aggravating the injury, which necessitated the MRI.
“He could be out for a while with his hamstring,” coach Jim Zorn told Weisman. “He’s a guy we need to get rehabbed. For us it’s an opportunity to not keep putting a Band-Aid on it.”
While Brennan’s injury would seem to open the door to a roster spot for rookie Chase Daniel, Weisman reports that they haven’t made a determination about his roster status yet.
UPDATE: Brennan also suffered a hip labrum tear, according to Chris Mortensen.
