Washington QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to undergo hip surgery, out for rest of 2021 season

Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his injured hip Tuesday, which will end his 2021 season. The 38-year-old, whose contract expires after the 2021 season, suffered the injury in a Week 1 loss to the Chargers.

Fitzpatrick, a 17-year veteran quarterback, was only in his first season in Washington before sustaining the hip injury. He only went 3-of-6 passing for 13 yards before going down against Los Angeles. Washington is Fitzpatrick’s ninth team in the NFL.

Taylor Heinicke has filled in for Fitzpatrick since then, guiding WFT to a four-game winning streak. The team currently sits sixth in the NFC playoff standings.
