Redskins DT Neild out for year with torn left ACL

Tuesday - 8/14/2012, 6:42pm  ET

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins defensive tackle Chris Neild is out for the season with a knee injury.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Tuesday that Neild has a torn left ACL.

The second-year player was injured during Monday's practice. He had the knee wrapped and did some running after he was hurt, but he was unable to return.

Neild was a seventh-round draft pick out of West Virginia last year. He played in all 16 games last season and had two sacks.
