Ladell Betts Has Torn ACL And MCL

After conflicting reports that Redskins running back had some combination of ACL, MCL and PCL tears, Redskins head coach Jim Zorn confirmed that Betts has indeed torn his left ACL and MCL, according to Rick Maese of the Washington Post. Zorn was not sure whether Betts will require surgery, and said that the team will wait before deciding whether or not to place Betts on IR.

The Redskins will reportedly bring back running back Marcus Mason, who was cut by the team several weeks ago, to provide more depth at running back.

UPDATE: Redskins Blog says that, prior to earlier reports, Ladell Betts will be placed on IR.

Betts May Not Have Torn ACL

Contrary to the ESPN report that Redskins running back Ladell Betts had suffered a torn ACL and PCL, DC’s 106.7 The Fan reports that Betts is only now undergoing an MRI, and it is not certain that he has in fact torn his ACL.

106.7 The Fan does say that Betts reportedly has no stability in his knee, which does not augur well for him playing again this season. Whether he has suffered an ACL, MCL, or PCL injury (or some combination thereof) remains unclear.

While early speculation centered on whether Redskins running back Ladell Betts had suffered an ACL or MCL tear, ESPN reports that MRI results have shown that Betts tore both his left ACL and PCL.

Betts Injury: 'It Doesn't Look Good'

Ladell Betts has been carted off the field in Dallas, and according to at least one person, the injury could be an ACL or MCL rupture for Betts, and it "doesn't look good." But did you really need the experts for that one? Just look at that immobilized knee. It doesn't look good.

Ladell Betts Out For The Game With Knee Injury, Redskins Down To 3rd String RB

The Washington Redskins, already without starting running back Clinton Portis, just lost their backup, it appears. Washington's Ladell Betts went down in a heap during the first quarter of the Redskins-Cowboys game, and while the severity of the injury is still unknown, it's serious enough so that the Skins will hold him out for the rest of today's game.

Previously, Betts had been considered a bright spot for the Redskins, playing particularly well during last week's win over the Denver Broncos. Quinton Ganther and Rock Cartwright will split the running back responsibilities for Washington. Stay tuned for more news as reports continue to emerge from Dallas.
