Redskins' Gruden confirms Junior Galette (Achilles) will miss season

(8/27/2015) Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed linebacker Junior Galette will miss the 2015 season after suffering a torn left Achilles in practice Wednesday. He will undergo surgery Friday.

Redskins' Gruden 'concerned' after Junior Galette suffers injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2015) Redskins outside linebacker Junior Galette was carted off the practiced field Wednesday after suffering an apparent injury to his left ankle/foot area, according to the team's official website.

Coach Jay Gruden confirmed the news after practice, but he didn't know the severity of the injury. Gruden said he was "very concerned."

It appears Gruden's concern is warranted, as ESPN and NFL Network are reporting sources said Galette might have suffered a torn Achilles. If that is the case, then Galette would be sidelined for the 2015 season.


Redskins LB Junior Galette still recovering from pectoral injury


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/7/2015) Redskins linebacker Junior Galette is still recovering from a previously injured pectoral muscle, per The Washington Post.

Galette suffered the injury during the offseason, but opted to forgo surgery after receiving advice from doctors that the surgery was not necessary. He passed a physical on July 27 and again on July 30 when he signed with the Redskins.

I’d say about 75, 80 percent if you calculate it right now,” Galette said. “It’s tough [being patient], especially for somebody that’s as passionate about playing as I am, but it’s about when I’m finally comfortable and doing reps that I was doing in the weight room. We’re just being cautious. If there was a game next week I’d be able to play, but I’m not. … We just want to be cautious because we can’t afford to have any setbacks right now.”

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Saints' Anthony Spencer works ahead of Junior Galette Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Saints linebacker Anthony Spencer worked ahead of Junior Galette in the team's base 4-3 defense, a run-heavy look that featured just three linebackers, ESPN.com reports.

"However it came out, we’re not worried about depth chart now," defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said. "We’re putting in a defense, we’re all working hard together and getting to know each other, our teammates and what we got. But I know both those guys can play, so we’re excited about 'em."

Spencer had a career-high 11 sacks in 2012 but has managed just 24 total tackles and a half-sack in 14 games over the last two years while dealing with a major knee injury.

"I think sometimes there are tougher positions to evaluate at this time of year," coach Sean Payton said, when asked to give his early thoughts on Spencer. "But I think, No. 1, he can affect the passer. ... He’s an edge player, I think he’s very good at fitting the run, and I think he can affect the passer."

Domestic violence charge against Saints' Junior Galette dismissed


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) The misdemeanor domestic violence charge against Saints linebacker Junior Galette has been dismissed, per a statement by his attorney. The Kenner City Attorney's Office confirmed the dismissal, per the New Orleans Adovcate.

"This happened after the four witnesses in the case were interviewed and after further investigation," attorney Ralph Whalen said. "The case will not be prosecuted."

The woman who accused Galette of beating her has filed a civil lawsuit against the Saints linebacker, the Associated Press reports. The lawsuit also contains allegations against other Saints players.

Whalen said Thursday that the lawsuit is "filled with lies" and was filed only after his client rejected a $2 million "shakedown."

"We unequivocally rejected their offer because we are confident an investigation and a full hearing of the facts will reveal that Junior Galette behaved appropriately and will be cleared," Whalen said.

Galette was arrested and booked with misdemeanor battery on Jan. 5 after the police responded to a disturbance at his home in Kenner, a suburb of New Orleans.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Loomis acknowledged he has not had any contact with Galette following the incident, but noted that the team's security director had been in contact with him as of two weeks ago. Loomis also noted that he is unsure of the league had begun its independent investigation on Galette.
