ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -What seemed like an annoying kick in the calf turned into a significant medical issue for the Washington Redskins and defensive end Jason Taylor, who underwent a 20-minute procedure Monday and will miss next week's game against the Dallas Cowboys.
``He's going to be fine,'' coach Jim Zorn said. ``Our problem is that he's going to be out for this Dallas game for sure. I can't tell you beyond that.''
Taylor was kicked in his left leg in the second quarter of Sunday's 24-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. He finished the game and had three tipped passes - including two during a crucial stand inside the Redskins' 10-yard line in the second half - but the leg became painful and sore Sunday night, and he lost feeling in his ankle as blood began to pool.
Taylor checked into a hospital early Monday morning.
sed that pressure,'' Zorn said.
Taylor was just starting to find his stride with the Redskins, who traded for him on the first day of training camp after Phillip Daniels was lost for the season with a knee injury. The six-time Pro Bowl lineman sprained his knee during preseason and was ineffective in the regular season opener against the New York Giants, but he had his first sack with the Redskins last week and forced the Cardinals into a field goal by tipping passes on second-and-goal and third-and-goal Sunday.
Seventh-year player Demetric Evans, a reliable Redskins backup for the last four years, is expected to start while Taylor is out, with Chris Wilson and Erasmus James also getting more playing time.
