The Washington Redskins early sprint to the top of the NFC East is in serious danger of turning into a long, downhill marathon to the division's basement after not only losing their last two games, but losing their tight end, Chris Cooley and best running back, Tim Hightower to season-ending injuries. Wide Receiver Santana Moss is out until at least mid-November and several other key players remain questionable for this Sunday.
This team is simply not deep enough to absorb that many injuries and still be able to win enough games to keep pace in the East. The other issue at hand is at quarterback where John Beck has replaced Rex Grossman as the starter after Grossman imploded against the Eagles with four interceptions. Neither of these QB's is going to strike fear into any defensive secondary in the league which makes the injury to Hightower that much more devastating.
This week the Redskins head north of the border for a late Sunday afternoon game against Buffalo at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. Below is a link to my complete preview of the game as originally posted on Cappers Picks
