Santana Moss Injury Update: Washington Redskins' WR Hopes To Practice, Play Vs. Seahawks

The Washington Redskins, losers of six straight games, haven't received much good news in recent weeks. However, it may come as a relief to them that wide receiver Santana Moss, who has missed the Redskins' last five games due to a broken hand, plans to "give it a go" in Wednesday's practice, potentially paving the way for his return Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. "I don't know how it's going to go," Moss said of the possibility of practicing Wednesday. "I take it day by day."

Moss led Washington wideouts in receptions and yards prior to breaking his hand, and remains the team's most dangerous deep threat. During his absence, Washington has managed just three touchdowns through the air, and only one prior to Sunday's overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

In six games this season, the 32-year-old Moss has 25 catches for 301 yards and two touchdowns. Remarkably, those figures rank him No. 4, 3, and 2 on the team in those categories, respetively, despite missing nearly half of its offensive snaps.
