The Washington Redskins escaped Sunday’s 26-20 victory over the Minnesota Vikings without any new injuries, but they watched right tackle Morgan Moses aggravate his left ankle injury. Moses went down in the third quarter but later came back in the drive to finish the game.
Moses left the locker room with a walking boot on his left foot, however. He initially suffered the injury two weeks ago against the Cincinnati Bengals and was listed as questionable despite receiving time off during the bye week. Moses made the start, but he’s been battling through pain to help contribute along an offensive line that played without left tackle Trent Williams, who served the first game of his four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.
“It’s about playing with my brothers, man,” Moses said. “Our offensive line, man, we’ve dealt [with injuries] over the past year man. When you’ve got guys like that that’s counting on you to pull through, man, it makes it easy to get back out there.”
Despite his limitations on the practice field during the week, Moses said he still received enough repetitions in practice and watched enough video to be physically and mentally ready for the game. The concern throughout the week was whether the swelling in his ankle would reside, and that will be something the Redskins will keep an eye on throughout the week as they prepare for the Green Bay Packers.
Tight end Vernon Davis briefly left the game after landing on the ball following his 15-yard reception in the first quarter. Davis returned once he caught his breath and finished the rest of the game.
“He flattened the ball, but his abs are okay,” Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said.
