Sav Rocca hopeful injury isn’t serious

Washington Redskins punter Sav Rocca was hopeful that the second-quarter injury that he suffered isn’t too serious, although it hampered his efforts during the second half.

Rocca injured his left ankle midway through the second quarter, when New York Jets linebacker Garrett McIntyre ran into him shortly after Rocca got off a 37-yard punt.

Rocca walked with a noticeable limp the rest of the game and he struggled to get as firm a plant with his left foot.

“I think it’s just a bit of a slight strain of the ankle. We haven’t assessed it just yet,” said Rocca, who this season has averaged 44.5 yards per punt. “I was restricted a little bit [in the second half]. I couldn’t get all of my power into the ball. Every time I planted, it was sore.”
