Washington Redskins guard Arie Kouandjio’s 2018 season is in jeopardy after he suffered a quadriceps injury.
Kouandjio, who started six games in 2017 for Washington, reportedly suffered a torn quad, according to NBC Sports Washington, which cited sources with knowledge of the situation.
The injury is expected to sideline Kouandjio for eight months. He was expected to compete for a starting job with Shaun Lauvao and Ty Nsekhe.
Kouandjio, a fourth-round pick by the Redskins in 2015 out of Alabama, was among the final cuts by the team prior to the start of last season.
He landed on the practice squad of the Baltimore Ravens before Washington signed him following a season-ending injury to Lauvao and wound up starting the rest of the way.
