[UPDATED 3:30 p.m.]
Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss had surgery on his broken left hand, a day after he injured it in the first half of Washington’s 33-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Moss tweeted news of his surgery earlier in the day.
Moss, who entered Sunday’s game leading all Redskins wide receivers with 22 catches for 284 yards and two touchdowns, suffered the injury while trying to break his fall on a play. He recorded two catches for 17 yards before he was injured.
Moss left the game and watched the remainder of the first half with his left hand heavily wrapped. When Washington emerged from the locker room at the start of the third quarter, Moss was wearing street clothes.
When asked about his injury after the game, Moss said, “It is what it is. I know how this game is. I don’t let that stuff rattle me. I don’t like missing nothing, so at the end of the day, you don’t [know] why it happened. Everything happens for a reason. Take it for what it is. Take it for how it is. Get it healed up and bounce back.”
