The Washington Redskins' improved pass rush took a hit on Wednesday.

It's feared that outside linebacker Junior Galette sustained a torn Achilles, FOX Sports 1 NFL insider Mike Garafolo confirmed. ESPN's Dianna Russini first reported the initial developments.

"I'm very concerned," head coach Jay Gruden said, via the team's Twitter account.
