MRI reveals torn ACL for Seahawks DE Chris Clemons

By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com

Robert Griffin III wasn't the only big name to go down in Sunday's NFC wild-card matchup between the Redskins and Seahawks. Seattle lost defensive end Chris Clemons, one of the league's most underrated pass rushers, midway through the third quarter.

On Monday, a league source told CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora that Clemons' MRI revealed a torn ACL, which means his season is over as the Seahawks prepare to face the NFC's top-seeded Falcons this weekend.

Clemons agent, Donal Henderson, blamed the "crappy" FedEx Field conditions on his client's injury.

“It's a shame,” Henderson told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. “He's worked so hard to get there."

In addition to the 11.5 sacks, Clemons had 40 tackles, three forced fumbles, and four passes defended.
