Per the report, retaining the pass rusher will cost the team, at most, $4 million. Galette, who turns 28 on March 27, will thus look to establish his role in the Washington defense this year after missing the 2015 season with a torn Achilles' tendon. Prior to his injury, while with the Saints, Galette recorded back-to-back double-digit sack campaigns in 2013 and 2014.
Junior Galette has been suspended for two games for his role in a January off-field incident, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Galette was placed on the Washington Redskins ' injured reserve list after tearing his Achilles in August, but his suspension will still apply to the current season. Although he's unable to play, Galette's suspension stemming from a January incident will still cost him two weeks of pay.
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.
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.”
