Garner has been ruled out for the 2018 season after suffering an ACL tear in Thursday's season opener, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Garner received a promotion from Washington's practice squad last December after failing to make the roster out of camp, but he failed to appear in a game for the Redskins. His pursuit of a 53-man job out of camp this season just hit a major snag and he will now have to wait until 2019 to take another shot.
Garner previously attended training camp with the Redskins before being cut in September and latching on with the team's practice squad. He'll slot in fourth on the depth chart at tight end for Washington, making it uncertain if he'll dress for the season finale Sunday against the Giants.
