LaRon Landry Injury To Sideline Redskins' Safety For Week 1, According To Report

UPDATE: Landry has now said he will miss the game, according to John Keim of the Washington Examiner.

It appears unlikely that the Washington Redskins will have safety LaRon Landry available to play in Week 1 against the New York Giants. Sources tell Mike Jones of the Washington Post that Landry will be made inactive for the game due to his slowly-healing hamstring.

A person with knowledge of the situation said this weekend that Landry likely will miss the start of the season and possibly more time. Tuesday evening, another person close to the situation confirmed that Landry indeed won’t be back on the field in time for the season opener because of the slowly-healing hamstring.

Landry sent out a since-deleted tweet that indicated he had suffered a setback. He had missed time in training camp with an Achilles injury, but just as that healed, he suffered this hamstring problem. Landry declined to speak to reporters at Redskins Park on Monday and will provide an update on his status on Wednesday.
