Santana Moss Injury Update: 'Outside Chance' Redskins' WR Could Return In Week 12 Vs. Seahawks

There's an 'outside chance' Santana Moss could return to the Washington Redskins' lineup on Nov. 27 against the Seattle Seahawks, coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday, according to Grant Paulsen. A broken hand has sidelined the veteran wide receiver since Oct. 23, when he suffered the injury against the Carolina Panthers. At the time of the injury, Moss led all Redskins wideouts in receptions and yards, and ranked No. 2 on the team in those categories to tight end Fred Davis.

Prior to facing Seattle, the Redskins take on the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 20. The team has already ruled Moss out for that game, but his potential return a week later is good news for a team that's struggled in the passing game in his absence. In the three full games Moss has missed, Washington quarterbacks John Beck and Rex Grossman have thrown for 677 yards, one touchdown, and five interceptions. Jabar Gaffney recorded the Redskins' lone touchdown reception in the interim.

This season, his seventh as a Redskin, Moss has 25 receptions for 301 yards and two scores. With 6443 receiving yards, Moss stands just 49 yards behind Bobby Mitchell for No. 4 in Washington franchise history.
