Report: LaRon Landry To Be Placed on IR

Thursday December 15th, 2011

A source has told Mike Jones of The Washington Post that Washington Redskins strong safety LaRon Landry will be placed on the injured reserve list due to groin and Achilles’ injuries.

The fifth-year veteran has been plagued with injuries the past two years and will end up on the season-ending list for the second year in a row.

Head coach Mike Shanahan was unsure of Landry’s ability to play the remainder of the season on a few occasions.

“I keep on thinking that [Landry is day-to-day], so I can’t tell you for sure. … Should know more tomorrow,” the coach said. “Even if he does come back, what speed can he practice at? What speed can he play at? Usually when a guy comes back after being away for a week or two weeks, it takes a little time to get back in football shape and play in a game.” Landry will be eligible for free agency at the end of this season, and his future with the team is uncertain. Through five seasons with the team, Landry has 383 tackles, 5.5 sacks and four interceptions.
