Redskins' Junior Galette reportedly out for season after tearing Achilles
The Redskins pass-rusher likely will miss every game for the second straight year
The injury marks the second year in a row that Galette has had to deal with a torn Achilles tendon. During his first training camp with the Redskins in 2015, Galette suffered a torn left Achilles, which caused him to miss the entire 2015 season.
Galette took to Twitter after suffering his latest injury.

The Achilles tear could put an end to a Redskins career that never actually started. After five seasons with the Saints, Galette signed a one-year deal with the Redskins before the 2015 season, but never made it on the field due to his first injury.
The pass-rusher signed another one-year deal for the 2016 season, but obviously he won't be able to get on the field to play out his contract. At this point, it wouldn't be shocking to see the Redskins move on from Galette after this season.
Galette was originally a bargain for the Redskins because of the way his career in New Orleans ended. The 28-year-old was cut in July 2015 after a YouTube video emerged that showed him getting into a violent altercation on a beach.
