Redskins starting nose tackle Barry Cofield exited Monday’s exhibition game vs. Pittsburgh with an injury, the club said earlier on Monday night.

According to Redskins radio reporter Rick “Doc” Walker, and via Chris Russell of ESPN 980 in Washington D.C., Cofield’s injury is a broken right hand. (Walker originally said it was Cofield’s left hand but later corrected his report, according to Russell, and Walker tweeted to that effect as well.)

Per Russell, who cited a report from Walker, Cofield does not believe the injury is a major one.

Cofield, 29, has started all 32 regular-season games since joining Washington in 2011. Chris Neild and Ron Brace are the next two nose tackles on the club’s depth chart.
