Washington WR Kelvin Harmon Tears ACL, Out For 2020


According to Ian Rapoport, Washington WR Kelvin Harmon tore his ACL while training and will miss the entire 2020 season. 

Harmon tweeted he had surgery last week and expects to be ready for the 2021 season. 

Harmon had been in the driver’s seat to start for Washington after flashing as a rookie, so the team will now need to find another starting outside receiver across from Terry McLaurin

Harmon is the second Washington receiver to be lost for the season due to injury after WR Emanuel Hall tore his Achilles a few weeks ago. 

The team drafted WR Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round this April but there’s a good chance they’ll need to bolster the position before the start of the season. 

Harmon, 23, was drafted by Washington in the sixth round out of N.C. State in 2019. He’s entering the second year of his four-year, $2.64 million deal and was set to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2020 season. 

In 2019, Harmon appeared in all 16 games for Washington and caught 30 passes for 365 yards (12.2 YPC) and no touchdowns.
