The Redskins entered Week 8 against the Cowboys with a laundry list of injuries.
Before the first quarter came to an end, they added another to the list.
Following a 41-yard pass from Kirk Cousins to Jamison Crowder that put the Redskins in the red zone, Rob Kelley plowed through the Cowboys' defense for the team's first touchdown of the game.
But when the dust settled, tight end Niles Paul remained down on the field.
While attempting to clear a hole for Kelley, Paul went helmet-to-helmet with Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee.

Paul suffered a concussion on the play, evident by the way he exited the field.
Paul went into concussion protocol and was later officially ruled out of the game.
The Redskins were already without Trent Williams, Brandon Scherff and Bashaud Breeland.

The Redskins have a bunch of new players on the active roster.
Players who haven't been with the team for more than a few weeks, what with the number of injuries growing by the week.
Pete Robertson is one of those new players, having been with the active roster for all of two days before the Thanksgiving matchup against the Giants.
Robertson was thrust into the spotlight on Thursday with a costly mistake early on.
Following a Tress Way punt that was looking to pin the Giants near the end zone, Robertson inexplicably picked up the ball at the 10-yard-line and ran it into the end zone for a touchback instead of allowing the ball to bounce toward the goal line.

To be fair, the Week 12 game against the Giants was the official NFL debut for the former Texas Tech linebacker.
Teammate Quinton Dunbar was not pleased with Robertson's mistake and gave him an earful following the play.
