 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Washington Redskins defensive end Jason Taylor left Saturday's game against Carolina with a sprained right knee.
The six-time Pro Bowl pick, acquired in a trade with Miami last month, was hurt when his leg bent awkwardly after he ended up in the middle of the pile following DeAngelo Williams' 5-yard run.
Taylor immediately screamed in pain and was attended to for several minutes on the field. He walked off the field on his own, but put little pressure on his right leg.
A team spokesman said Taylor would not return.
Taylor, who has started 130 consecutive regular-season games, spent the previous 11 seasons in Miami. But he angered the Dolphins for appearing on the television show ``Dancing With the Stars'' rather than working out with the team this offseason and was later dealt to the Redskins for two draft picks.
