Through four games, the Redskins have avoided major injuries. That appears to have changed as starting offensive lineman Kory Lichtensteiger was forced to ride a cart off the field following a first quarter Rex Grossman interception.
According to a television report Lichtensteiger injured his knee on the play. His return to the game is questionable.
Lichtensteiger has been a quality player for the Redskins this year and a stable presence on the offensive line. If the knee injury forces Lichtensteiger to miss significant time it will be a blow to a Redskins offensive line that has played better than some expectatins this year.
After taking a hard hit on a pass completion, tight end Chris Cooley also went into the locker room. No word yet on his status.
