Santana Moss Injury Update: Washington Redskins' WR Has Broken Hand

Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss was forced to leave the game against the Carolina Panthers with a hand injury, and as it turns out, the injury appears to be serious. Moss did indeed suffer a broken bone in his hand, coach Mike Shanahan announced in his postgame press conference.

Shanahan didn't say how long Moss would be sidelined for at this time, suggesting that Moss will need additional X-Rays. However, he was very clear in saying that Moss has a broken bone. He was asked later in the press conference to confirm the news, and he repeated that Moss has a broken bone.

Moss has 23 receptions for 284 yards and two touchdowns in five games this season.
