After missing the previous four games due to injury, receiver Santana Moss admitted to some pregame jitters Sunday.
“Once I got out there and got a couple hits here and there and caught a couple balls, it was like normal,” Moss said.
Making his return to the starting lineup, Moss had 29 yards on four catches in Sunday’s win at Seattle. He was targeted seven times, tied for the team lead with Jabar Gaffney and Roy Helu.
Moss broke a bone in his hand Oct. 23 at Carolina and didn’t return to practice until last week. He said his hand caused no problems Sunday.
“I’m glad we got a win,” he said. “My main focus was just to give us the much needed help that I can. I took some of the looks that I know have been missing all week and just tried to do all that I had in my might to give us a chance, give us some hope. As a team, we went out there together, fought hard and came up with one.”
Moss had only one catch in the second half, but the Redskins spread the ball around. Rex Grossman hooked up with eight different pass-catchers on the day. Moss has been among the most outspoken players when it comes to Grossman.
“I think earlier in the season, Rex did the same thing for us: He gave us hope,” Moss said. “As long as we go out there and run our routes the right way and get open, he’ll give us a chance to get the ball.
“His presence alone has kind of lifted a lot of guys’ spirits. Offensively, we had a rhythm with him earlier, and just to have him back, that was one of our keys.”
