Report: Torn pec feared for Brandon Scherff

An MRI will provide further word on Washington right guard Brandon Scherff‘s injury, but the initial diagnosis isn’t a good one.

Scherff left Sunday’s loss to Atlanta with what was called a shoulder injury and head coach Jay Gruden said after the game that Scherff would get more tests, including an MRI, on Monday. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that those tests could confirm that Scherff has suffered a torn pectoral muscle.

If confirmed, that might mean Scherff is done for the season and he’d certainly be out for an extended period of time.

With left guard Shawn Lauvao getting an MRI on what looked like a serious knee injury and left tackle Trent Williams out indefinitely after thumb surgery, it’s a fairly bleak state of affairs on the offensive line.

  1. Thats huge. That line was great allowing AP to be the old AP. Without that line, AP is back to being the new average AP as of late. The past Sunday, he only put up 17 yards on 9 carries with a 1.9 average against an Atlanta team that is not even a top 10 rush defensive team. A team that allows over 100 yards per game against average RB. They got Texans, Bucs and Cowboys next games and all 3 teams have a top 10 rushing defense so AP going to have a miserable second half season stats. A player his age with a potential FA next year needs to finish strong. Doubt it now

  2. Even for a Cowboy fan that is a sad state of affairs on the O line. Loved Callahan when he was with the Boys, and thought letting him get away was a huge mistake. But even he is going to have a difficult time patching up that O-line unless Washington finds some good big bodies, and quick. Big job ahead of him. With the bodies, he will be up to the task.

  3. I know football is a violent sport but why every single year does our line continue to get hurt? It’s time for either new linemen or a new strength coach. End of story. These are good players but what good are they if they get hurt every single year? Your teams season literally relies on healthy linemen on both sides of the ball. If they go down then you can just about count the Redskins season goodbye. Panthers, Falcons, Cowboys, all have lost good linemen and they are doing just fine. Our backups are terrible and have been for YEARS.

  4. Brandon Scherff is the best right guard in all of professional football. He will come back bigger, faster and meaner. Look out opposing DBs and LBs when he returns. Brandon is coming to “hunt” for you!!

  5. It’s always a difficult reality check the week after playing the Giants. Teams get so pumped up thinking they suddenly found the magic. Only to realize it’s a mirage, and just because the Giants stink.
