Injured Redskins TE Derek Carrier out for the season

Tight end Derek Carrier, acquired in August because of injuries, is reportedly out for the season with a knee injury.

The Redskins just cannot keep tight ends in one piece this season.

Derek Carrier suffered a season-ending knee injury in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Chicago Bears, according toNFL reporter Ian Rapoport.

Washington acquired Carrier from the 49ers in August after placing tight ends Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen on the injured reserve list, which is where the 25-year-old is soon headed.

In 12 games, Carrier caught 17 passes forr 141 yards and one touchdown. Beyond any offensive stat, the 6-foot-4, 241-pounder provided Washington with a viable option for two-TE sets or when starter Jordan Reed was off the field.

Look fo the Redskins to add a help this week. Inexperienced TE Je'ron Hamm is the only other active option behind Reed. Offensive tackle Tom Compton filled in, but he's strictly a blocker.
