Last week we reported that Redskins guard Arie Kouandjio had suffered a quad injury. Now there is a report that he will go under the knife and is likely to be out at least until the early part of the regular season. That timetable will create a roster dilemma for the Redskins.



Ian Rapoport of NFL MediaA said that Kouandjio will have surgery this week to repair a a€œpartially torna€ quad. The recovery will last a€œseveral months.a€



J.P. Finlay of NBC Sports WashingtonA reported last weekA that Kouandjio had been injured. When asked about the report, coach Jay Gruden confirmed that the fourth-year player did indeed sustain an injury.
