Morgan Done for the Year After Being Placed on IR

Linebacker Dan Morgan is out for the year as the team put him on IR today with aMorgan partially torn Achilles tendon.  The injury took place in week three.  “It’s obviously disappointing and frustrating for Dan, and it’s disappointing for us, too,” general manager Marty Hurney said. “He tried to rehabilitate it for six weeks with no significant improvement, so he decided to undergo surgery.”  The seven-year vet has not played since suffering the injury, and in the two plus games he did play in he recorded 22 tackles, 16 solo and 6 assists.  Rookie Jon Beason, who took the spot of Morgan when he went down, will continue to start at the middle linebacker spot.
