LaRon Landry Injury: Redskins Safety Confirms He Will Likely Miss Season Opener Vs. Giants

Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry confirmed he will likely miss the Redskins' NFL Week 1 game against the New York Giants because of a hamstring injury. While he did add "as of now" to his proclamation, it would seem like a shock right now that he would actually play.

Here is his quote, via John Keim of the Washington Examiner:

"As of now, yeah it looks like I'm going to miss it," Landry said of the opener.

Landry was asked about a timetable beyond Sunday's game and said he was taking it "a day at a time." He added that the injury was a setback over the weekend that was revealed in an MRI on Monday.

Landry also apologized for a series of tweets in which he seemingly blamed the Redskins' medical staff for the setback, calling them "unprofessional." He deleted one of those tweets, but another remains on his feed.
