The Washington Redskins have officially placed TE Fred Davis on season-ending injured reserve after he torn his Achilles’ tendon during Sunday’s game.
Chris Cooley has been signed to replace him and has passed the necessary physical.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that Redskins’ Tight End Fred Davis will miss the rest of the season after he suffered a torn Achilles tendon during today’s game against the Giants.
Davis appeared to twist his ankle during the first quarter after getting tangled up with Antrel Rolle. Davis ends his season with 23 receptions for 312 yards, but no touchdowns.
During the offseason, Washington franchised Davis, but it seems very unlikely that they would be willing to use the tag on him again, considering that it would require an additional 20 percent increase. Veteran TE Chris Cooley could be an option for them in the coming weeks.
Davis really seemed like a great young player, but hasn’t lived up his promise. We have him listed as the No. 40 best player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
