Washington Redskins left tackle Chris Samuels will make a decision on retirement in February after consulting with more doctors according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network.
Samuels was sidelined after suffering an injury in week five against the Carolina Panthers and placed on injured reserve shortly thereafter.
The former Pro Bowler also suffers from Stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal column.
“I hope to see where I am physically over the next couple months,” Samuels told reporters in October. “At this time, I have not made a decision (about retirement), but I love playing for the Redskins and hope to be back.”
The 1999 Outland Trophy winner out of the University of Alabama was drafted third overall by the Redskins in 2000 where he has played his entire career.
