Digest: Redskins' Galette to miss season after suffering injury to other Achilles' tendon

Washington Redskins outside linebacker Junior Galette will miss a second straight season after suffering his second Achilles tendon tear, two people with knowledge of the situation confirmed Monday.

Galette missed all of the 2015 season after rupturing his right Achilles tendon during the preseason. He had made a nearly complete recovery and anticipated practicing fully once training camp began Thursday, but Galette tore his left Achilles on Sunday while doing drills. Galette tweeted Monday, "Haven't felt so good best shape of my life and this happens to me now Idk what else to so when does da rain stop[?]"

Galette signed with Washington for the veteran's minimum last season after getting released abruptly by the New Orleans Saints. But he never played a down. This offseason, he turned down a multiyear deal with the Redskins because he anticipated making a full recovery and performing well. Galette, who had 22 sacks in 2013 and 2014 combined, instead signed a one-year, $1 million deal that featured $500,000 in bonuses and $2.5million in incentives.

More Redskins: Washington released safety Kyshoen Jarrett after he failed his physical before training camp. Jarrett sustained nerve damage to a shoulder in the regular-season finale against the Dallas Cowboys and didn't participate in any offseason activities. Coach Jay Gruden said in May that the 23-year-old was seeing a specialist in Denver. Jarrett, who played at Virginia Tech, appeared in all 16 regular-season games as a rookie in 2015 and started six. He had 58 tackles, which includes his time on special teams. Jarrett's release leaves 88 players on the roster.
