Washington defensive end Jason Taylor left Saturday's preseason loss to Carolina with a sprained knee, according to The Associated Press.

An x-ray showed no serious damage, but Taylor will undergo an MRI on Sunday.

He was hurt when his leg bent awkwardly after he ended up in the middle of the pile following DeAngelo Williams' 5-yard run midway through the second quarter.

"I spoke to him. He's in good spirits," defensive end Andre Carter said. "We'll just have to see."
