Redskins LS Nick Sundberg is done for the season with a knee injury.

The Redskins have a borderline-unhealthy affection for Sundberg, using their injured reserve/designated return device on the long snapper in 2012 before signing him to a four-year extension in the offseason. This time, his injury is too severe for the Redskins to keep Sundberg on the roster.

Redskins agreed to terms with LS Nick Sundberg on a four-year contract.

26-year-old Sundberg was shockingly given the "designated for return" tag after fracturing the ulna in his arm in last year's season opener. The Redskins could have used that designation on a more valuable offensive or defensive player, but clearly have a high opinion of Sundberg's long-snapping abilities.

Redskins placed LS Nick Sundberg (fractured ulna) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Sundberg suffered the injury to his "guide" arm early in the season opener. He wound up snapping eight more times in the game, playing through "pretty terrible" pain and earning the respect of his teammates and coaches. He's expected to be in a cast for the next couple of weeks while his arm is immobilized. Justin Snow was signed to take his place.
