Anthony Armstrong Injury: Wide Receiver Injures AC Joint In Practice

As Washington Redskins training camp continues, so does the injury bug. Wide receiver Anthony Armstrong injured his shoulder at practice on Thursday. When interviewed by the media on Friday, Armstrong says that he hurt the AC joint in his shoulder.

The joint is located on the top of the shoulder and allows the person to raise the arm over one's head. For a wide receiver to have this injured is pretty serious. However, Armstrong is hopeful that he will be ready to play in the team's first preseason game against the Buffalo Bills on August 9, but does know that that is still up in the air.

The wide receiver position is one that is still filled with a lot of unknowns entering the 2012 season. Possibly not having Armstrong around will put pressure on the other receivers to try and improve their standing with the team.
