Former Alabama defensive tackle and Washington Commanders rookie Phidarian Mathis was carted off the field early in the first quarter of the Commanders' home opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars after suffering a leg injury.

Mathis needed the help of two members of the Commanders' medical staff to get to the cart.

On the Jaguars second offensive possession, Mathis was working inside on a carry by James Robinson and appeared to hyperextend his left knee. Mathis had hurried Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence early on the first Jacksonville possession.

Mathis was taken in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft with the 47th pick by the Commanders after recording 53 solo tackles and 10.5 sacks in his time in Tuscaloosa while also being a part of the 2020 College Football Playoff National Championship team.
