Washington's football team has suffered heartache after heartache this season, and this week delivered another blow to the team. Cornerback Chris Culliver is out for the season with a torn ACL and MCL from Thursday's practice, Ian Rapoport from NFL.com reports.
The 27-year-old came down awkwardly while jumping for a ball during practice, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
However, a post-fall MRI showed the injury to be more serious than initially thought, putting Culliver out for the rest of the season.
Culliver tore his ACL back in 2013 and missed that entire season during his time playing for the San Francisco 49ers. He played in 46 games and spent four seasons with the 49ers before signing with Washington in the offseason for a four-year, $32 million contract.
Washington's football team is 4-6 this season, and they play the New York Giants Sunday, Nov. 29 at FedEx Field at 1 p.m.
