The Washington Redskins will be without wide receiver David Patten for the remainder of the season after he had surgery on his right knee on Friday.

Patten has been feeling discomfort in his knee for the past few weeks, but has played in all of the Redskins games. When the pain became worse this week, doctors advised him to have season ending surgery.

"We were hoping that it was going to be something where it was just cleaned out, but they had to do some kind of repair to it," said Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs. "I don't think it's anything serious."

Although Patten could have been back in six weeks, he would not have been available unless the Redskins were to make the playoffs. That is why the Redskins placed him on the injured reserve.

Patten has only caught 22 passes for 217 yards, far behind Santana Moss. Receiver Taylor Jacobs, in his third year, will replace Patten as the other starter beside Moss. James Thrash will be the team's third receiver.
