Redskins insider relays bad news to Fred Davis

Redskins’ tight end Fred Davis suffered an Achilles’ tendon injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Giants and will miss the remainder of the season, as first reported on ProFootballTalk.com.

Davis appeared to get hurt while running a route deep in Washington territory. After remaining on the field for several moments, Davis was helped to the sideline, hopping as to avoid putting any weight on his left leg.

The Redskins’ medical staff worked on Davis on the sideline before the veteran was taken the locker room. Moments later, the team informed the media in the press box at MetLife Stadium that Davis had suffered a left Achilles’ injury and would not return.

Davis is entered the game as the Redskins’ leading receiver, having hauled in 23 passes for 312 yards and no touchdowns. Before leaving the game, Davis had one reception for 13 yards and an illegal shift that negated a Josh Morgan touchdown reception.
