Redskins rookie Jenkins out for year with torn ACL
Washington Redskins second-round draft pick Jarvis Jenkins is out for the year with a torn ACL.
Jenkins received the news Friday, a day after he injured his right knee in the first quarter of a 34-31 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
The injury is a significant blow to a Redskins' defense seeking to improve after ranking next-to-last in yards allowed in the NFL in 2010.
The defensive end from Clemson had a strong training camp and was slated to be major part of the defensive line rotation - and possibly challenge Adam Carriker for a starting job.
