Redskins placed LB Adam Hayward (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

It’s a procedural move after Hayward tore his ACL in Week 2 of the preseason. A special-teams only player, 31-year-old Hayward is under contract for $885,000 next season.

Redskins LB Adam Hayward suffered a torn ACL in Thursday night's preseason game and will miss the entire season.

Hayward doesn't play defense but is a special teams cog. He recorded 11 tackles in kick coverage last season before going down with a broken bone near his knee.

Redskins special teamer Adam Hayward was forced from Thursday's preseason game with a knee injury.

It had the looks of a potentially serious issue. Hayward is a core special teamer, but he'll likely be headed to injured reserve if he's dealing with anything more than a day-to-day injury.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden is hoping LB Adam Hayward will give the special teams unit a boost in 2015.

Even after missing the last five games with a broken bone near his knee, Hayward still finished second on the Redskins with 11 tackles on special teams. Gruden said Hayward has fully recovered and will be back to captain the special teams unit in 2015. Hayward only played ten snaps at linebacker last season.

Redskins placed LB Adam Hayward on injured reserve, ending his season.

They promoted LB Steve Beauharnais from the practice squad to take Hayward's place. Signed to a three-year, $3 million deal in March, Hayward was primarily a special teamer. He's out of place trying to play much on defense.

Redskins agreed to terms with LB Adam Hayward, formerly of the Bucs, on a three-year, $3 million contract.

Hayward, 30 in June, doesn't play much defense but is a stalwart on special teams. He racked up eight tackles on coverage units last season. Hayward's missed just five games in seven seasons. He'll also back up at the inside 'backer spot.

The Bucs reportedly aren't counting out Adam Hayward as a candidate for the starting middle linebacker job.

The organization has been "pleased" with Mason Foster, who remains the strong favorite. A special teamer and reserve at all three linebacker spots, Hayward was unable to beat out Foster, Geno Hayes or Quincy Black for a starting job in the past.
Tue, Jul 31, 2012 01:22:00 AM

Bucs re-signed LB Adam Hayward to a three-year contract.

Hayward recorded 29 tackles and one sack as a backup linebacker at all three spots and special teamer last year. His role projects similarly in 2011. Hayward garnered some interest from the Rams last week, but ends up with the team that drafted him back in 2007.
Mon, Aug 1, 2011 10:37:00 AM

The Rams are reportedly showing interest in free agent LB Adam Hayward.

The Rams have been connected to a slew of second- and third-tier linebackers. They may only be offering just above the minimum considering the targets. Hayward was the Bucs' sixth-round pick in 2007. He's made four career starts.
Wed, Jul 27, 2011 08:44:00 PM

The Bucs are expected to use both Adam Hayward and Dekoda Watson at SLB to fill in for the injured Quincy Black (forearm).

Hayward should get most of the snaps, as he plays more in the base defense, while Watson will be out there in the nickel defense. It's not a particularly enticing situation for IDP owners.
Mon, Dec 13, 2010 11:36:00 AM

Bucs agreed to terms with sixth-round LB Adam Hayward.

The Portland State alum will battle for a backup middle linebacker slot. The Bucs have now signed four of their draft picks.
