Redskins head coach Shanahan on CB Wilson’s back injury: “It doesn’t look too bad”

Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post reports Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson suffered a back injury on Arizona’s first possession of the third quarter and did not return to Washington’s 22-21 victory on Sunday.

Wilson was trying to tackle Arizona running back Beanie Wells, leading with his head, when he twisted away from the play and fell to the ground face first. He lay with his face in the ground for several minutes as the training staff tended to him, and a cart appeared on the field to take him away. But Wilson got up and walked off the field – and eventually to the locker room – under his own power.

“It doesn’t look too bad right now,” Coach Mike Shanahan said after the game.

    GOOD NEWS.

    WILSON is a stout player, and an excellent upgrade over ROGERS in my estimation. It’s looked like poor technique caused a potentially serious neck-back injury. How he didn’t fracture something is beyond my understanding.

    Definitely got to watch those hip tackles. I broke a finger doing that once, but I kept my head up at least. Always felt bad about that play. The q-b I tackled went out and didn’t return for three games.

    BTW, are we keeping count on RG’s stats?

    That’s 3 TD’s, 2 INT’s, and a fumble. Right where I would expect him to be. Make a play, give one away. I see SANTANA said the int was on him for breaking off the patrtern and coming back over the middle. REX seems to be a guy who really needs the play to go according to plan for him to not only be comfortable, but effective as well. I think a top-tier q-b should be more adaptable to whatever situation develops when the play unfolds. Wasn’t JASON CAMPBELL have some issues along those lines as well.

    I like what WIL MONTGOMERY brings to the center position sans CASEY RABACH. He has great technique in my estimation even if his long-snapper skills need an upgrade. But I notice on full pass-rushes, at least one defender stops in his tracks when MONTGOMERY in in the zone. My knock on him has always been he’s a bit small for the NFL. I’ve always liked his level of play.
