Silatolu, 27, is in the final year of his four-year $4.937 million rookie contract rookie and will make a base salary of $963,242 for the 2015 season.
This isn’t the first time Silatolu has suffered a season-ending injury, as he played in only three games during the 2013 season before he suffered a torn right ACL.
He also dealt with calf and knee injuries throughout his 2014 season that caused him to miss a total of nine games.
Silatolu was injured while filling in for LG Andrew Norwell, who’s will likely return from injury this week.
