Reports: Redskins linebacker Trent Murphy to miss season with knee injury

Now, he'll miss the entire season after suffering a torn ACL in last night's preseason opener.

He will still serve his suspension this season, it will not carry over to 2018 when Murphy is healthy. Coaches have been pleased with how he's performed in practice.

Murphy, 26, was second on the Redskins with nine sacks previous year, trailing only Ryan Kerrigan.

Murphy was already suspended for the first four weeks of the regular season for violating the league's policy on banned substances.

The Redskins have signed former Louisville wide receiver Jamari Staples, who is taking the place of linebacker Trent Murphy on the active roster.

The Dolphins are already without outside linebacker Koa Misi for the 2017 season due to a neck injury, and could look to bring in a veteran free agent to fill the void in their linebacker corps.

Following the 2014 season, Staples transferred to Louisville after it was announced that UAB's football program was being shut down.

In two seasons at Lousiville, Stapled pulled in 73 receptions for 1,253 yards and five touchdowns.
