Injuries: Redskins' Colt McCoy has neck strain

Print

Another year and another injury ends Louis Delmas' season.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the safety tore his ACL in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source. The team later announced Delmas would be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Rapoport added that there is no other damage to the knee, which will help the rehab process.

Losing the safety is another blow to a struggling defense that has been hindered by a rash of injuries to its secondary.

The hard-hitting Delmas has flashed talent throughout his six-year career, but he can rarely stay on the field a full season. The 2013 season marked the only time in his career the 27-year-old appeared in all 16 games. Heading to IR, Delmas will now miss a combined 16 games over the past four seasons.

Here is some other injury news we are tracking Monday:

1. Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy said Monday he was sore after leaving Sunday's loss with a neck injury.

"I feel OK," McCoy said. "The neck's a bit (sore). I'm meeting with all the doctors today, so hopefully we can figure out what's going on."

Coach Jay Gruden confirmed that McCoy suffered a sprained neck and currently is seeing specialists. Gruden told reporters he wouldn't make a QB decision until he's received all information on McCoy's status, adding that Robert Griffin III will start if McCoy cannot play against the Giants.

2. Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters that running back Jamaal Charles has swelling in his knee and is dealing with an ankle issue as well. "He's a bit tender today," said Reid.

3. Bears receiver Brandon Marshall has been released from the hospital, coach Marc Trestman said. Chicago officially placed Marshall on IR Monday.
