CHICAGO — The Redskins suffered a few injuries against the Bears today, but they all seem to be relatively minor, at least in the early diagnosis.
Running back Rob Kelley suffered a knee sprain late in the second quarter. He was attended to on the field and he came to the sideline. But he was back in after halftime, and he carried five more times for 15 yards. But later in the game Mack Brown came off of the bench to spell Kelley. After the game Kelley said that he could have stayed in had the game been closer. The rookie said that he thought he will be fine for next week’s game.
Cornerback Bashaud Breeland suffered an ankle sprain in the third quarter. He left the game but returned and got his second interception of the day.
Safety Donte Whitner sustained a quad injury in the fourth quarter. He left the game and did not return.
Wide receiver DeSean Jackson had a highly productive first half with five receptions for 114 yards. But early in the third quarter he suffered what Jay Gruden said was a jaw contusion and he did not return to the game.
Gruden will update the media on all of the injuries during his press conference on Monday afternoon at 3:00 p.m.
