McClain (toe) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's matchup with the Saints, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.
McClain will be replaced by Anthony Lanier at the defensive end position for the time being. An update on severity of McClain's injury will surface Monday, as the Redskins will be operating on a short week ahead of a Thanksgiving matchup with the Giants.
McClain injured his toe against the Saints on Sunday and is questionable to return.
McClain has rarely logged a full workload this season, only accruing 19 tackles (16 solo) and two sacks through nine games. Having a strong threat on the edges is important against a red-hot Saints' offense that features two top-tier running backs and QB Drew Brees. Until McClain can return, expect Anthony Lanier to take over his duties on the Redskins' defensive front.

McClain's deal will draw him out of Dallas and reportedly will be worth more than $21 million over the course of its four years. The defensive tackle led the Cowboys' defensive line in tackles with 41 in 2016, and also added 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and eight quarterback pressures. He should provide a significant boost for a Redskins' front seven that surrendered 119.8 rushing yards per game last season, good for 24th in the league.
McClain (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff game against the Packers.
McClain went down in Week 16 and ultimately missed the Cowboys' regular season finale against the Eagles. However, he returned to practice last week and hasn't reported a setback in his recovery since. His return would likely mean less snaps for teammate David Irving.
