Washington’s Ryan Fitzpatrick to undergo arthroscopic hip surgery, out for season, per report


Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is out for the remainder of the 2021 season. NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported on Tuesday that the veteran signal-caller is undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his hip. “Fitzmagic” wasn’t expected back this season, but this surgical procedure settles it. 

Fitzpatrick suffered a hip subluxation in Washington’s season opener against the Los Angeles Chargers after playing just 16 snaps. He completed 3 of 6 passes for 13 yards and rushed once for 2 yards. The original recovery timetable was expected to be around 6-8 weeks, but that timeline continued to grow. Initially, Fitzpatrick reportedly elected to forgo surgery and rehab himself, but it sounds like going under the knife was unavoidable.

The journeyman signed a one-year,  $10 million deal with Washington this offseason, so it will be interesting to see what 2022 holds for Fitzpatrick. It’s also possible the 39-year-old decides to hang up the cleats, but surely this is not a season he wants to go out on. The former seventh-round pick is 59-87-1 as an NFL starting quarterback and No. 31 all time with 34,990 career passing yards. He has played for nine different NFL teams
