Washington Reskins: 4 Injured Players Who Will Be Missed the Most

No matter how much we hate to see solid players go down, injuries come with being in the NFL. The Washington Redskins are certainly not the exception to the rule—half of the offensive line was gone by mid-season last year.

That's bad news for a good quarterback, much less the sub-par ones who took snaps under center in 2011.

The Redskins enter 2012 with the same dismay on the offensive line. Fortunately, most of them should be available for the season opener against the New Orleans Saints.

The backfield has also been hobbled over the last few years and that trend seems to be unbroken. Alfred Morris took advantage of the injuries in his last preseason game, pounding his way to 107 yards on just 14 carries with the starters.

Washington has three players on IR and one on the PUP list. Two of those players on IR were supposed to play an integral role in the Redskins' depth at their positions.

As of now—knock on wood—there aren't any starters placed on the IR but there undoubtedly will be at least one by the end of the season.

I also have a feeling there are two players already on their way to the injured reserve list—it's only a matter of time.

We can only hope the person behind them produces at a level that will keep this team in contention.
