Washington Redskins defensive tackle Stacy McGee has been sitting out recent offseason workouts with the team.

According to Matthew Paras of the Washington Times, head coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday that McGee recently had surgery to address a groin injury.

McGee had not taken part in the last two weeks of OTAs and was not in attendance for the start of the team’s mandatory mini-camp on Tuesday.

McGee appeared in all 16 games for Washington last season and made 10 starts after signing a five-year deal worth up to $25 million last March. He recorded 44 tackles in his first season with the Redskins after playing his first four seasons with the Oakland Raiders.

  1. The way the coaches have talked in OTAs, it sounds like McGee is the odd man out.

    Jonathan Allen, Daron Payne, and Matt Ionnaidis are locks and fifth-round pick Tim Settle is pretty much a lock. They also have invested a lot of time in Anthony Lanier and like his upside.

    Where the coach talk comes in is that the coaches routinely go out of their way to talk up Ziggy Hood. That’s fine — he’s a nice steady veteran, albeit better as depth than a starter.

    Washington was also prepared to start Phil Taylor last season before he got hurt.

    McGee is going to need an injury — someone else’s injury — to open a path.
