UPDATE: Mike Jones of the Washington Post reported Monday afternoon that Bernstine is out for the year with a torn ACL, PCL, and MCL.
Sunday marked Jordan Bernstine’s first regular-season game as an NFL player. Now we wait to see when his second game will be.
Bernstine suffered a sprained knee while on the field during a kickoff return for the Washington Redskins in their win at New Orleans, and was carted off. After the game, he had a cast on the injured leg.
Washington Coach Mike Shanahan said “He’ll be out.”
Bernstine was a seventh-round 2012 draft pick out of Iowa.
Two other Iowa rookies, Green Bay Packers defensive end Mike Daniels and Redskins offensive guard Adam Gettis, were inactive Sunday. Daniels was a fourth-round draft pick, Gettis a fifth-rounder.
Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway had 13 tackles in his team’s 26-23 overtime win over Jacksonville. Only one player in the NFL had more tackles on Sunday, linebacker A.J. Hawk of Green Bay.
Greenway also had a diving break-up of a Blaine Gabbert pass on the Jaguars’ final possession.
The Vikings are in a three-way tie for first-place in the NFC North with Chicago and Detroit at 1-0. Green Bay is in last place at 0-1.
Shonn Greene of Iowa had a workhorse first game of the season with the New York Jets, with 27 carries for 94 yards and a touchdown.
That gives him 22 more carries and 83 more yards than teammate Tim Tebow.
And here’s former Iowa tight end Scott Chandler of the Buffalo Bills (4 catches, 36 yards and a touchdown in a 48-28 loss to the Jets), with the old catch-the-ball-then-clobber-Rex Ryan play:
