Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry is headed to injured reserve due to a left Achilles tendon injury that might need surgery. Dr. Robert Anderson, a Charlotte, N.C., specialist, has recommended surgery.

"It's got to get well," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan told reporters. "Because last year, in the first nine games that he played, he should have been player of the year. If he feels like he needs to have surgery on it, something's seriously wrong."

Landry will be a free agent after this season. "You've got to check out exactly how the surgery went," Shanahan said. "You've got to talk to the doctors. You to make sure the athlete's in a good rehab program."
