Redskins RB Royster leaves game

Landover, MD ( - Washington Redskins running back Evan Royster left Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs with what was later diagnosed to be a high ankle sprain.

The Redskins had initially ruled Royster questionable to return with a left knee injury, but later deemed him out for the remainder of the contest.

Royster was making a run after catching a pass on 3rd-and-19 in his own territory early in the second quarter, but his knee and leg rotated awkwardly as he fell to the turf.

He was escorted from the field while placing no weight on the left knee, then was taken to the locker room for evaluation.
