Friday July 31st will probably go down as one of the worst days in the life and career of Bashaud Breeland.

Earlier today, the Washington Redskins cornerback was handed down a suspension from Roger Goodell and the rest of the National Football League.

Hours later and it got a whole lot worse, as Breeland was carted off the Redskins practice facility with what could be an incredibly serious injury.

Knee Injury

According to reports of the incident that is making it's way around Twitter, Breeland was covering a receiver in 1v1 drills and his knee gave way while trying make a cut, bending at a horrific angle. You can check out a video of it below...

A knee should not bend that way. Here is a freeze frame of that fateful moment in case you wanted to see the full extent of the extension.

Fingers crossed that it isn't as bad as it looks, but on first viewing he could be out for a lot longer than the ban given to him by the NFL.

The Suspension

Back to the ban, Breeland was only suspended for a game by Commissioner Goodell and co for his possession of marijuana arrest back in the summer of last year.

The Washington Times reported last summer that Breeland was caught on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond on August 11 2014.

Breeland should probably count himself lucky that his suspension wasn’t longer than just the one game. Otherwise, his place in the starting squad could have been at risk.

The cornerback started 15 games during his rookie season at the Redskins last year, after being selected in the fourth-round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He made 67 tackles, 13 pass deflections, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.
