LaRon Landry Injury Update: Washington Redskins' Safety Won't Have Surgery On Achilles

Despite missing 15 games in the last two years in large part due to an ongoing Achilles injury, Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry will not be having surgery to repair the injury over the winter, coach Mike Shanahan confirmed to reporters at the Senior Bowl on Monday.

Landry has been bothered by many nagging injuries, but all go back to his Achilles. He first missed the final seven games of what was a breakout 2010 season, then struggled in 2011 after passing on surgery that offseason. The Redskins finally put him on injured reserve late in the year after seeing him shuffle in and out of the lineup all year.

Landry is a restricted free agent, and this injury concern further complicates his status. The Redskins could sign him to a long-term deal, or they could give him the franchise tag.
