Redskins' Trent Murphy out for season with torn ACL

According to The Washington Post, Murphy will serve his suspension while injured at a loss of $185,315 of his base salary.

An MRI exam Friday revealed the injury, which occurred during Washington's third defensive series against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium. He didn't talk to reporters after the game, but Murphy left the visitors' locker room on crutches with his left knee heavily wrapped.

From a big-picture standpoint, however, this is only bad news for a defense that already was a bit thin up front even before Murphy was lost for the season.

A former college star will be out for the upcoming National Football League season.

South Korea 's fell 1.7 percent to its lowest since May 24, but its losses for the week are a relatively modest 3.2 percent. A report released by the Labor Department showed a modest uptick in consumer prices in the U.S. in the month of July.

Murphy, a free agent after the season, was coming off a career-best nine sacks and was playing well in the preseason opener before the injury.

The outside linebacker is already suspended for the first four games of the regular season thanks to a positive offseason test for performance enhancing drugs.

Murphy will miss the 2017 season and deprive the Redskins of a key pass rusher. Murphy, who started 23 games in his first two years, played in all 16 games as a reserve last year.
