Josh Wilson Injury Update: Mike Shanahan Says Washington Redskins' CB Was 'Woozy'

Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson is "woozy" after taking a hit to the head in Sunday's victory against the New York Giants, coach Mike Shanahan said Monday, according to Rich Campbell of the Washington Times. Wilson will undergo tests on his head Tuesday.

It's unclear when specifically Wilson suffered the injury, though he performed well against New York, recording four tackles (all solo) and an interception of an Eli Manning pass to the endzone in Washington's upset victory.

On the season, Wilson has 56 tackles (43 solo), two interceptions, 15 passes defensed, and one fumble recovery. He remains a key part of the Redskins' defense, which ranks No. 16 in points allowed and No. 7 in passing touchdowns allowed.

Washington's next game is Saturday against the Minnesota Vikings. One assumes the team will release details on Wilson and his availability for that contest once the results of his tests come in.

Josh Wilson Injury: Washington Redskins' Cornerback Not Available To Media Due To 'Head Symptoms'

Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson was not made available to the media following Sunday's 23-10 win over the New York Giants due to "head symptoms," according to Nathan Fenno of the Washington Times. While nothing is confirmed, it looks possible that Wilson suffered a concussion in the victory.

It's not clear when the injury occurred. Wilson did stagger out of the game a couple times during the fourth quarter, but he also got a key fourth-quarter interception on Eli Manning in the end zone.

Wilson has been a key player in the Redskins' secondary this season. While he has not been quite as good as the man he replaced, Carlos Rogers, he did have one interception and 12 passes defended this season prior to Sunday.
