DETROIT—The Redskins not only have to deal with a tough loss to the Lions, they face the possibility of playing without two of their best players, one on each side of the ball.

Cornerback Josh Norman left the game in the third quarter. He tried to make a play on a long pass to Marvin Jones and as he lunged he appeared to hit his head on the artificial turf. He lay on the field for a few minutes before being helped directly to the locker room area. It was later announced that he has sustained a concussion. He will automatically enter the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Then on the next to last play of the game Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams went down with what he later said is a hyperextended left knee. He also was on the field for a few minutes before being helped off and being assisted into the locker room.

He spoke to reporters before leaving and said that he would get an MRI on Monday and he would know more then. Williams was very noticeably favoring his left leg as he limped out of the locker room towards the team bus.

Guard Brandon Scherff left the game for a while late in the second quarter with what Jay Gruden said was an AC joint sprain on his shoulder. He returned to the game after halftime and in the locker room he didn’t have a wrap or a sling.
