The Redskins Keep Getting Injured: Is This Karma Coming Back To Bite Them?

Early in the season, the Washington Redskins were known as the team that knocked out key players on other teams. Just ask DeMarcus Ware, Andre Johnson, Steven Jackson, Aaron Rodgers, JerMichael Finley, Clay Matthews, Michael Vick and Dallas Clark. There was even a sense of pride for this, as if the Redskins were the bad, fearsome team that everyone was afraid of playing.
