Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry will not play in Sunday's game against the New York Jets, coach Mike Shanahan announced in a Friday press conference. The five-year veteran strained his groin trying to chase running back Marshawn Lynch in last Sunday's win against the Seattle Seahawks and has not practiced at all this week leading up to the game against the Jets.
In eight games this season, Landry has 48 tackles (35 solo), 1.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. Against the Seahawks, he finished with four tackles (three solo) and one sack. Though he left the game after suffering the injury initially, he returned to the field later.
The Redskins list six-year veteran Reed Doughty as Landry's backup on their official depth chart. Doughty has 47 tackles (33 solo) in 2011, tallying two tackles (one solo) against Seattle.
