According to The Washington Post, Murphy will serve his suspension while injured at a loss of $185,315 of his base salary.

The Washington Redskins will be without starting defensive end Trent Murphy throughout the 2017 season after he suffered a torn ACL, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

An MRI exam Friday revealed the injury, which occurred during Washington's third defensive series against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.

Murphy left the game after this play and was seen on crutches in the locker room. Murphy will miss the rest of the 2017 season.

Murphy is coming off his best season as a professional, collecting nine sacks in 2016.

Murphy is entering his fourth season with the Redskins after being the team's top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Stanford.

Murphy was already suspended for the first four weeks of the regular season for violating the league's policy on banned substances. The Redskins have stalwart Ryan Kerrigan as a starter but are presently without a healthy Preston Smith or Junior Galette. Smith started all 16 games last season and has 12.5 career sacks in two years.
