Washington Redskins Injuries List
Head Coach of the Washington, Mike Shanahan, said he had never seen anything like the injury wave that hit his Redskins on 21st November 2010 when they played Tennessee Titans in Nashville.
They had several injury problems before the game but that was nothing compared to what happened in the game.
A the end of the game Mike Shanahan said “I’ve been in a lot of football games through the years, not just in the pro level, and I have never had that many guys go down and the team stay together and keep on fighting and find a way to win. It says a lot about our football team. How they handle themselves, how hard they work. … We were able to survive.”
