LaRon Landry Injury: Washington Redskins' Safety To Injured Reserve, Says Report

Injuries to his groin and Achilles' tendon will end Landry's 2011 season, according to a report.

The Washington Redskins will place strong safety LaRon Landry on the injured reserve lit due to lingering injuries to his Achilles' tendon and groin, reports Mike Jones of the Washington Post, ending the five-year veteran's 2011 season early. Landry, who will become a free agent after the season ends, also missed the end of the 2010 season due to the same Achilles' injury.

Landry missed Washington's preseason and opening two games of the 2011 season to rehabilitate the Achilles' injury, but managed to play in seven straight games before his Achilles' "flared back up," Wise says, which kept him out of the Redskins' loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 20. When he returned to the lineup the following week, he injured his groin. He has neither played nor practiced since Nov. 27.

Landry has 48 tackles (35 solo), 1.5 fumbles, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery in 2011. Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett announced Thursday he would start DeJon Gomes at Landry's position for the rest of the season. The Nebraska product has 22 tackles (11 solo) in his rookie campaign.
