Redskins Vs. Titans: Many Injured Washington Players Not Likely To Play Next Week

The Washington Redskins may have gotten themselves a big win against the Tennessee Titans, but it looks like it came with a major cost. All the injuries that occurred was a subplot of the game, and the news doesn't appear to be good with many of them.

Speaking in his post-game press conference, Mike Shanahan said that several of the Redskins that were hurt today are "longshots" to play against the Minnesota Vikings next weekend. LaRon Landry and Carlos Rogers, two Redskins that missed this week's game, were on that list, as was Clinton Portis (groin). Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander is also a "longshot" with a hamstring injury, while center Casey Rabach will have an MRI on his injured knee. In addition, Rocky McIntosh's groin injury was described as "fairly serious."

Yeesh. Oh, and Chad Simpson, the third-string running back who was activated this week before hurting himself in warmups, will require season-ending surgery. The Redskins' depth was tested this afternoon, and it passed. It looks like it will be tested again going forward.
