Redskins SS DeJon Gomes suffered a partially torn MCL in his left knee during Sunday's win over the Eagles.

Gomes only has a Grade 2 sprain, so there's a chance he won't miss any time. He hasn't started since Week 3 of the regular season. The Redskins would likely turn to Jordan Pugh as their rotational safety if Gomes is ruled out.

Redskins S DeJon Gomes is expected to take over as the team's starting strong safety with Brandon Meriweather (knee) out for the season.

Gomes, in his second season out of Nebraska, started the first three games of the season with Meriweather out but was quickly replaced in the lineup by veteran Reed Doughty.
