Seattle Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons hurt his knee in yesterday’s win over the Redskins, and the team fears it’s a season-ending ACL tear.After the game, Clemons’ agent Donal Henderson ‘blamed the ‘crappy’ conditions at FedEx Field for contributing to the injury,” Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
