The Redskins came out of their game against the 49ers with a win but there are a few injuries of concern.
CB Bashaud Breeland left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury. He played very sparingly the rest of the way. Jay Gruden said that the initial diagnosis was an MCL sprain and that an MRI will be done on Monday. Breeland was seen in the locker room walking with a noticeable limp but without any sort of brace or other support.
Breeland’s health will be of great concern this week. Josh Norman missed today’s game with a broken rib and his availability for the upcoming Monday night game in Philadelphia is very much up in the air. Going into a game against the 5-1 Eagles with both starting cornerbacks sideline would be a difficult task.
DT Jonathan Allen also left in the second half with what Gruden said was a foot sprain. He was in a walking boot after the game and he will have an MRI schedule for tomorrow as well.
S Montae Nicholson had a shoulder injury, although he appeared to be moving OK after the game. S Stefan McClure had a knee sprain, and it looked like the Redskins were running out of safeties with Deshazor Everett inactive with a hamstring injury. CB Kendall Fuller said that he was the next man up if they needed another safety but fortunately the managed to keep two of the group of Nicholson, McClure, and D.J. Swearinger on the field the whole game.
