Redskins DB Chris Culliver Tore ACL And MCL

The Washington Redskins lost cornerback Chris Culliver to a torn ACL during the team's Thanksgiving practice, but it turns out that's not all he tore. The team announced Friday that Culliver also tore his MCL. 

"He’s a good player for us, obviously," head coach Jay Gruden said. "You hate to lose good players. Unfortunately, it happened. It was just a fluke deal. He just went up for a ball and landed on it and it tore."

Culliver was the team's No. 1 CB and the team will miss his him. Breshaud Breeland will become the team's No. 1 CB in Culliver's absence. Will Blackmon will likely become the other starter. 

DeAngelo Hall and Kyshoen Jarrett had be working at safety, but could see more action at corner. Deshazor Everrett and Quinton Dunbar could also see more action at corner. 

Culliver signed a four-year, $32 million contract before this season. Of that, $16 million was guaranteed.
