The Redskins came out of their game with the Giants in fairly good shape on the injury front.
Their most gruesome injury should cost the player little if any playing time. After making a play on the ball in the third quarter, cornerback Quinton Dunbar suffered an injury to his left index finger. He told the story during CSN’s Redskins Postgame Live.
"I got a little dislocation," he said. "The bone was sticking out, so they had to sew it back in but I'll be all right.”
Oh, just a bone sticking out. No big deal.
"I made the play and then I celebrated a little bit and I didn't feel it, then a second later I looked down and my finger was leaning all the way to the left and I'm like, 'Oh, Lord.' I ran off to the sideline and showed them my finger and that was that."
By “that was that” Dunbar, a rookie who came to training camp as an undrafted wide receiver and converted to cornerback when some injuries hit the position, meant that he couldn’t return to the game. He had put in a good day’s work, with three passes defensed and an interception that stopped a key third-quarter New York drive.
Jay Gruden said that Dunbar will see a finger specialist to determine treatment, which could include surgery
Tight end Derek Carrier left the game in the first quarter and did not return. Gruden said that he is day-to-day.
DE Chris Baker (hyperextended elbow) and RB Chris Thompson (AC joint sprain) both left the game with injuries but returned.
