Redskins Rookie RB Bryce Love Expected To Undergo Another Knee Surgery


JP Finlay of NBC Washington reports that Redskins rookie RB Bryce Love is expected to undergo another surgery to his right knee.

Ian Rapoport confirms the news adds that this is expected to be a minor procedure aimed at speeding up the rehab process. 

Love suffered a torn ACL last December and has been on the non-football injury list since this summer.

According to Finlay, Love is in Pensacola, Fla., to see famed knee surgeon Dr. James Andrews regarding his knee.

Redskins interim HC Bill Callahan told reporters on Monday that Love is “still in the rehabilitation process.”

“We’ll just see where he’s at,” Callahan said. “He’s still in the rehabilitation process.”

Back in April, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reported that Love’s knee was still “very stiff” after suffering the ACL tear and some teams had concerns about it and whether he’ll regain his movement and explosiveness.

Love, 22, could have entered the 2018 NFL draft, but elected to return for his senior year at Stanford and unfortunately suffered a torn ACL late into the season. 

The Redskins selected Love in the fourth round of this year’s draft. He later agreed to a four-year, $3.3M contract. 

During his four years at Stanford, Love has rushed for 3,865 yards on 569 carries (6.8 YPC) to go along with 49 receptions for 465 yards receiving and 32 total touchdowns over the course of 49 games.
