Tight end Fred Davis was taken from the field on a cart after injuring the Achilles’ tendon in his left leg in the first quarter of the Washington Redskins’ game Sunday against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.

Davis will not return to the game, the Redskins announced. It was not immediately clear how long Davis would be sidelined or whether the injury could threaten his season.

Davis was helped from the field by members of the team’s medical staff after he was hurt on a pass play near the Giants’ goal line. Davis ran a pattern and ended up on the turf near the back of the end zone. Davis was examined behind the team’s bench, then helped onto the back of a cart and taken from the field.

He led the team with 23 catches and 312 receiving yards entering the game. The Redskins are playing Sunday’s game without Pierre Garcon, who was signed during the offseason and expected to be the team’s top wide receiver. Garcon has an injury near the second toe of his right foot.
