    Redskins' Gruden 'concerned' after Junior Galette suffers injury

    Redskins outside linebacker Junior Galette was carted off the practiced field Wednesday after suffering an apparent injury to his left ankle/foot area, according to the team's official website. Coach Jay Gruden confirmed the news after practice, but he didn't know the severity of the injury. Gruden said he was "very concerned." It appears Gruden's concern is warranted, as ESPN and NFL Network are reporting sources said Galette might have suffered a torn Achilles. If that is the case, then Galette would be sidelined for the 2015 season.

    Redskins LB Junior Galette still recovering from pectoral injury

    Redskins linebacker Junior Galette is still recovering from a previously injured pectoral muscle, per The Washington Post. Galette suffered the injury during the offseason, but opted to forgo surgery after receiving advice from doctors that the surgery was not necessary. He passed a physical on July 27 and again on July 30 when he signed with the Redskins. I'd say about 75, 80 percent if you calculate it right now," Galette said. "It's tough [being patient], especially for somebody that's as passionate about playing as I am, but it's about when I'm finally comfortable and doing reps that I was doing in the weight room. We're just being cautious. If there was a game next week I'd be able to play, but I'm not. … We just want to be cautious because we can't afford to have any setbacks right now."

    Saints LB Junior Galette passes physical, will be released

    Saints linebacker Junior Galette, who was informed of his release by the team Friday after his January arrest for domestic violence and his role in a video where he apparently was shown striking a woman with a belt during a brawl, passed his final team physical, setting the official stage for his release Monday, per The Times-Picayune. The physical was necessary because Galette missed time during OTAs and all of minicamp with a pectoral injury, which Galette downplayed. Galette will not pass through waivers and will be free to sign with any team.

    OLB Junior Galette criticizes Saints for releasing him

    Outside linebacker Junior Galette apparently wants to make the Saints regret releasing him one year after signing a lucrative contract extension agreed upon to keep him around long-term. Charges against Galette had been dismissed after his January arrest for domestic violence. A video had also surfaced in which a man identified as him by a league source was shown striking a woman with a belt during a brawl in 2013. "(It was) the worst call they've ever made," Gatlette told the New Orleans Times-Picayune about his release. "It was a terrible call to kick me when I'm down." Galette has certainly proven productive on the field with 22 sacks over the last two seasons combined.
