Linebacker and special teams captain Adam Hayward suffered a season-ending right leg injury Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. But on Wednesday, his number remained on the practice field.
In an act of solidarity, fellow inside linebacker and good friend Will Compton shed his personal No. 51 for Hayward’s No.55 during the Washington Redskins’ first practice since coming back to Loudoun County, Va.
11 games into his first full season, Compton has totaled 20 tackles. He has valued Hayward’s presence on the field and developed a strong relationship—and similar facial hair styles– with him, as evidenced in a couple of Instagram photos together.
