Cardinals Vs. Redskins: Coach Mike Shanahan Confirms Cornerback Josh Wilson Has Injured Back

The Washington Redskins come-from-behind 22-21 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2 did not come without some battle scars, as several Washington defenders were nicked up during the roller coaster Redskins win.

The most important injury was suffered by cornerback Josh Wilson in the third quarter. While making a tackle on Cardinals running back Beanie Wells, Wilson led with his head and collided with Wells’ hip, slumping to the ground and remaining there for some time as the Redskins medical staff tended to him. Just as the emergency cart made it to the field, Wilson was able to stand and walk off under his own power. He headed to the locker room and did not return.

According to John Keim, coach Mike Shanahan confirmed Wilson has a back injury, but perhaps it is not as serious as it looked:

Redskins Vs. Cardinals: Josh Wilson Questionable To Return With Back Injury

LANDOVER - The Redskins look to have received a critical low early in the second half against the Arizona Cardinals.

Cornerback Josh Wilson appeared to collide helmets with running back Beanie Wells on a first down run, and had to be tended to by the team's medical staff for an extended period of time. Wilson was able to walk off the field with help from the trainers just as the cart was coming out.

Wilson headed to the locker room immediately after being helped off the field. The team listed Wilson's injury as a back injury and listed his return as questionable. Kevin Barnes, the nickel cornerback, will replace Wilson in the lineup for the time being.
