LaRon Landry looked like one of the best safeties in football at times this year. The rest of the time, he didn’t look healthy or wasn’t on the field at all.
Landry’s season will now end on injured reserve because of a strained left Achilles’ tendon and strained groin, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.
Landry ended last year on I.R. with similar problems. Rookie DeJuan Gomes will start in Landry’s place the rest of the way.
The sixth overall pick in the 2007 draft will be a free agent in the offseason. He’s only played 17 games over the last two years, so the Redskins may be able to retain Landry on a somewhat cheap short term deal. The franchise tag is also a possibility.
