ASHBURN – Stephen Bowen tore the PCL in his right knee in the Redskins’ 45-41 victory over the Bears on Sunday.
An examination taken on Monday showed the torn ligament, which should not prevent the defensive end from continuing to play this season. He sustained the injury while being blocked by Bears left tackle Jermon Bushrod on a running play on the first drive of the third quarter, but still returned to the game.
Bowen tore the PCL in his left knee in the Redskins’ game against the Seahawks in 2011 and finished out the final five games of the season.
