5 Washington Redskins Who Must Step Up After Fred Davis' Injury
Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Washington Redskins have to count on other playmakers, as Fred Davis was injured against the New York Giants.

And according to Mike Florio of NBC Sports:

Redskins tight end Fred Davis, who signed a one-year franchise tender for 2012, probably won’t be on the wrong end of the franchise tag again.

Davis, we’re told, has a torn Achilles tendon.  It means that he’ll most definitely miss the rest of the year.

This is most definitely an unfortunate set of circumstances for Davis and the Redskins. Still, injuries are part of the game, so being prepared in advance is necessary to sustain consistent execution.

That holds especially true when the offense fields a rookie quarterback like Robert Griffin III. The last thing a team needs is for unprepared guys to step in, because that would only enhance the NFL's difficulty for the rookie.

With that, let's check out who must now contribute more for Washington's offense to keep rolling.
