Washington Redskins wide receiver Robert Davis will miss the entire season due to the serious right leg injury he sustained on Saturday, coach Jay Gruden told reporters on Sunday.

Davis will undergo surgery and be sidelined nine to 12 months, according to Gruden. Published reports say Davis broke his tibia and injured multiple knee ligaments.

"I just know its season-ending," Gruden said. "You know, it will be a major surgery; it's a nine- to 12-month rehab process, PCL I believe and some other damage. So, Robert's in our prayers, but he will recover quickly. He's a good, strong, young guy, and we'll take care of him."

Davis, 23, was injured Saturday when went up for a pass during a seven-on-seven drill and got tangled up with defenders. He was unable to get up from the ground and was helped to the sideline before being carted off the field.

Davis was a sixth-round draft pick in 2017 and appeared in one game for Washington last year. He did not have a reception.

Davis was one of three Redskins to sustain a major injury in recent days.

On Friday, Washington announced rookie running back Derrius Guice will miss the entire season after an MRI exam performed earlier in the day revealed Guice hurt the ACL injury in his left knee against the Patriots. Multiple reports stated the injury was a torn ACL.

The Redskins had also announced that tight end Manasseh Garner also sustained an ACL injury.
