A season that started so promising for LaRon Landry in a new defensive system ended Monday in disappointment.
The Redskins placed the talented safety on injured reserve with an Achilles’ tendon injury that already has kept him out four games.
Landry had his lapses in pass coverage as usual this season, but he may have been the team’s best defensive player before he got hurt. He was a solid Pro Bowl candidate, but doesn’t figure to get that honor with only nine games under his belt. He finishes with 85 tackles — only five fewer than he had in 15 games last year.
In positive news for the team’s beleaguered secondary, Carlos Rogers should be back in the mix this week against Dallas.
