He was injured with 4:59 left in the first quarter of Thursday's 23-3 preseason opening loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Linebacker Trent Murphy is helped off the field. He didn't talk to reporters after the game, but Murphy left the visitors' locker room on crutches with his left knee heavily wrapped. In his first three seasons in Washington, Murphy appeared in 47 regular-season games with 22 starts, registering 112 tackles along with 15 sacks, six forced fumbles and four fumbles recovered.

A former starter during his first two seasons, Murphy flourished as an off-the-bench rush man in 2016.

Multiple reports are out that Washington Redskins Linebacker Trent Murphy will miss the entire 2017 National Football League season with a torn ACL. Murphy was playing behind Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith. The latter has missed two full seasons and still hasn't played for the Redskins despite signing in D.C.in 2015.

This was the final year of Murphy's rookie contract, meaning he will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

Washington, though, did draft Alabama edge defender Ryan Anderson in Round 2.
