Redskins TE Davis out for season with torn Achilles

Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis will miss the rest of the season after tearing his left Achilles tendon in the first quarter of Sunday's 27-23 loss to the New York Giants.

Davis was running a route in the end zone when he tried to make a cut and immediately fell to the ground. He limped his way to the sidelines before being carted to the locker room to have his left leg examined.

"Achilles...right now it's a tear," Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan confirmed after the game. "He'll be out for the year."

The fifth-year pro entered play on Sunday with a team-high 312 receiving yards on 23 catches.
