Redskins' Trent Murphy to miss season with torn ACL

Redskins' Trent Murphy to miss season with torn ACL

Trent Murphy might not be too broken up when Carson Daly and Co. celebrate 2018 beginning, because 2017 has been brutal for the Washington Redskins edge defender.

Murphy fell and twisted his left knee awkwardly in the first quarter of the team's preseason game against the Ravens Thursday night.

Murphy left the game after this play and was seen on crutches in the locker room.

Wall St rises on inflation data but on track for weekly losses
The Vix, a measure of how much volatility investors expect in stocks, jumped 34.8 per cent, the biggest increase since May. The Russian dollar-traded index RTS was down 1.49 percent, and ruble-traded MICEX fell 1.29 percent by midday.

The biggest blow was the injury to Murphy who tore his ACL and MCL and will miss the 2017 season. ESPN's John Keim reported that Cravens "tweaked" an old college injury in his knee and should be better in two or three weeks, which would have Cravens back around the start of the regular season or slightly before. He recorded nine sacks, which almost doubled his two-year total coming into last season.

Coming off of a nine sack breakout year in 2016, Murphy would have been suspended the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs had he not been injured.

The Washington Redskins selected Murphy in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft after a stellar career at Stanford.
