NFL Week 3 injury roundup: Several Redskins hurt
The Redskins were hit hard by injuries in Sunday’s game against the Giants.
Defensive back DeAngelo Hall sprained his right knee in the first half and was ruled out for the game. Cornerback Bashaud Breeland injured his ankle and was also ruled out. Two starting offensive linemen—left guard Shawn Lauvao and center Kory Lichtensteiger—also had their days end early.
