Many Redskins fans assume that safety LaRon Landry has played his last game with Washington, largely due to his injury concerns. And in a Twitter conversation with one such fan early Tuesday morning, Landry suggested that the injury came after he ‘shot [the ankle] up’ in order to play for the Redskins.
Obviously much of this is written in Twitter shorthand, but here’s the dialog. Go to Landry’s feed if you want to see it all.
Fan: we need answers...as a Skins fan, i feel im owed an explanation as to why u feel like its ok to go the same route as David Boston
Landry: lol not in my veins fam... Stay blessed
