The Washington Redskins' defense suffered two major blows on Sunday, with both Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker going down with season-ending injuries.
The injury news made a tough loss against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday even worse. Losing two key players -- including arguably the team's best defensive player -- two weeks into the season is never good, and Redskins fans over at Hogs Haven took the news about as well as you could expect.
"Well, the news is as bad as can be for the injuries." -- Kevin Ewoldt
"This week just got exponentially worse" -- Bahga
"this is bad real bad. Teams are going to run left the whole game now. Raks presence off the field will be felt and people will understand that even though he only has one move to get to the quaterback he still does a lot of other things that impact games big time :( this just sucks" -- no more kwame's in dc
"Hello 6-10! Horrible news coming after an inexcusable loss." -- SlappyWilson
While most fans were understandably dissapointed, not everyone was ready to give up on the season just yet.
"Texans lost Mario Williams last year, defense didn't blink an eye. (actually it was the same injury I believe)…I’m not diving off a cliff yet" -- acno77dlye
