ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins rookie safety Jordan Bernstine is out for the season with torn ligaments in his right knee.
Bernstine was injured on a kickoff in the fourth quarter of Washington's 40-32 win over the New Orleans Saints.
Bernstine was a seventh-round draft pick this year. His injury is another blow to an already depleted secondary. Brandon Meriweather is sidelined with sprained ligaments in his left knee, and Tanard Jackson is serving a season-long suspension for failing a drug test.
