Commanders veteran OT done for season

Charles Leno‘s season has come to an end. The Commanders are placing the veteran offensive lineman on injured reserve, according to ESPN’s John Keim.

Leno suffered a calf injury earlier this month, forcing him to miss Week 17’s loss to the Jets. The offensive lineman had already been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the 49ers.

The 32-year-old has spent the past three seasons in Washington, starting each of his 47 appearances. This season, Pro Football Focus has Leno graded 25th among 84 qualifying offensive tackles, and he’s earned especially high marks for his pass-blocking ability.

After spending the first seven seasons of his career with the Bears, the lineman inked a one-year deal to start his tenure in Washington in 2021. Leno later inked a three-year, $37.5M extension with the organization in 2022.

The Commanders are dealing with injuries throughout their offensive line. Center Tyler Larsen will be sidelined on Sunday with a knee injury, while right tackle Andrew Wylie is questionable with an elbow issue. If Wylie can’t go, Cornelius Lucas and Samuel Cosmi will likely fill in at OT for another week.
