Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley broke his right ankle in Monday night's 27-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and will miss the remainder of the season, a team source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora.

|Redskins TE Chris Cooley will miss the rest of the season after breaking his ankle against the Eagles.|
Cooley was hurt on the first play of the second quarter. He limped to the sideline but was later carted off to the locker room. He caught two passes for 21 yards before leaving.
The news is another blow to a Redskins offense that already was without starting linemen Chris Samuels and Randy Thomas. Washington (2-5) has failed to score more than 17 points in any game this season.
"When it rains, it pours," center Casey Rabach said. "We just keep taking hits on the offensive side of the football."
Cooley went to the Pro Bowl after each of the last two seasons and has never missed a game since entering the NFL in 2004.
"Losing Chris is big," Campbell said.
