Campbell Escapes with an Injury that Could have Been Much Worse

Let’s just say that it could have been a lot worse, and if it would have, the Redskins seasonCampbell takes a shot could have been in some serious turmoil right away. Of couse what we are refering to is the injury that was suffered on Saturday night in the Skins 12-10 loss to the Steelers when QB Jason Campbell went down in a heap with a knee injury. Five members of the Skins training staff quickly looked over Campbell, who after a few minutes was able to leave the field without much help from anyone else.

Campbell stood on the sideline for the rest of the game, and today will undergo an MRI on the knee, but thankfully for the team all looks well. The official term that is being used for the injury is a “bruise” which is about the best you can get for a shot that looked like it could have ended the QB’s season. “It was a scary moment,” said Campbell. On the night, Campbell looked as poised as ever, going 6-for-8 for 75 yards. He led the first team well, and had them moving when he did go down with the injury. Todd Collins ended the drive with a TD toss.

The favorite target of Campbell was tight end Chris Cooley, who hauled in a couple of key third down passes, and seemed to have the middle of the field all to himself. On the night, he had five catches for 60 yards. As long as Campbell can get back on the field in one piece, he’ll have the tools to put together what should be a solid chance to be a good NFL QB, with the support of teammates and coaches behind him. For now, he’s just happy to be in one piece after the shot he took Saturday night.
