The Redskins are injury-free, for the most part, heading into Week 1 of the NFL season.
Most teams suffer unfortunate losses before the season starts when players get hurt in practices or preseason games, but with the Redskins' four-game slate in the past, the team is unscathed for the most part.
There's Jammal Brown, the team's starting left tackle, who hurt his hip before the start of training camp and recently underwent surgery that will keep him out for 4-6 weeks. And there's backup nose tackle Chris Neild, whose ACL surgery will leave him out until the start of the 2013 season. But other than that, Washington is ready to go for the team's season opener at close to full strength.
The Redskins suffered no major injuries against the Bucs and they will go into the regular season with as much of their preseason depth chart intact as just about any other NFL team.
That might not seem very interesting, but in the physical world of the NFL, the fact that there's news is rare enough that it's news in and of itself.
