Two members of the Redskins defense will be going for medical tests on Friday after suffering knee injuries during the team’s loss to the Ravens on Thursday night.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that linebacker Trent Murphy left the stadium on crutches after hurting his left knee during Baltimore’s third offensive possession of the game.

Coach Jay Gruden said that Murphy will have an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. Whatever the result of that test, Murphy will miss the first four games of the year while serving a PED suspension.

Safety Su'a Cravens is the other player headed for an MRI on Friday. Jones reports that Cravens “suffered either a hyperextension or a meniscus-related injury” when he got hurt during the first quarter of the game.

  1. I wish that PFT would tally up all of the injuries from preseason games and share that with its viewers. Pro players shouldn’t need 4 games to get ready to play; and they don’t. It’s sad when division titles are won/loss in meaningless games.

    If you shorten the preseason then the starters would have to play even more in the preseason and take even more practice reps which would lead to even more injuries for starting players. You can not short cut preparation and expect a better product.

    The only way you can get better at playing football is to play football.
