Santana Moss just happy to be back on the field

Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss will return to action Sunday for the first time since he broke his left hand. But although he is glad to take the field, Moss hasn’t allowed himself to become overly excited.

“It feels good, but ... me talking about it isn’t going to make it better or make it worse,” said Moss, who has 23 catches for 301 yards and two touchdowns in six games. “I’m glad to be back going, I just want to go out and help turn this thing around.”

Moss suffered the injury while trying to break his fall during the first half of Washington’s game against Carolina.

He had two pins inserted in his hand. They were removed last week, and Moss began catching balls soon after. The receiver said on Friday that he hasn’t had any trouble holding onto the ball, and hasn’t had to alter the way he catches.

The Redskins offense has struggled without Moss in the lineup. Coach Mike Shanahan said he expects the 11th-year pro to quickly regain his rhythm.

Moss said that he hasn’t set any goals or expectations for himself.

“Just go out there and play. I don’t set goals,” Moss said. “Just go out and play, be productive and help my team win.”
