Redskins lose another offensive lineman for season
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Rookie tackle Geron Christian is out for the rest of the season in the latest significant injury to the Washington Redskins' offensive line.
Coach Jay Gruden said Monday that Christian will miss the final seven games of the regular season and any in the playoffs after tearing the medial collateral ligament in his right knee. Christian, the Redskins' third-round pick who was forced into action by a bevy of injuries, hurt his knee Sunday at Tampa Bay.

The Saints, who'd already ruled out receiver Ted Ginn Jr. with knee soreness, also scratched linebacker Manti Teo, who'd been questionable with a knee injury.
Fournette inactive for Jaguars against Patriots

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — After plugging holes on the defensive and offensive lines and at running back, the Washington Redskins still have plenty of depth needs to fill on the third day of the NFL draft.
