Lorenzo Alexander injury: Redskins LB hurts shoulder, questionable to return

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Redskins backup LB Lorenzo Alexander was hurt while making a tackle late in the second quarter of the team's game against the Browns.

Washington Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander left in the second quarter of the team's game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday with a right shoulder injury. He is questionable to return, according to Redskins beat reporter Grant Paulsen.

With the Redskins holding onto a three-point lead late in the first half, Alexander left the field after making a tackle on Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, who gained five yards on the play. Shortly after Alexander's departure, the Redskins allowed the Browns to take a 14-10 lead on a 1-yard touchdown run by Trent Richardson. Alexander only had one tackle prior to suffering the injury, but was generally active and around the ball over the course of the opening half.

Alexander, 29, entered the game with 33 tackles, two sacks and a fumble recovery in 2012. A sixth-year pro out of California, he has 150 tackles, seven sacks, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 89 career games.
