The Washington Redskins offense has been banged up all season, and they hope to get one of their leaders, wideout Santana Moss, back in the near future as he recovers from a concussion.

Moss has passed all concussion tests and is cleared to play Sunday against Philadelphia, according to Zac Boyer of the Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star.

After losing favorite target Fred Davis for the season and missing Pierre Garcon for a large chunk of the year, Moss' return would be crucial to Washington's passing attack. Moss has been working hard all week to come back and help Robert Griffin III get their struggling offense back on track, and it seems to have paid off.

Moss’ short day ended with the wideout recording just one reception for two yards. The Redskins lost the game 21-13 and dropped to 3-6 on the season.

After a slow start to the season, Moss put together two consecutive impressive performances. The 33-year-old had three touchdowns in the last two games.

Heading into the matchup with the Panthers, he was the Redskins’ second leading receiver behind Fred Davis and was the only player with multiple touchdown catches. He has five on the season and was unable to add to that total today.

The Redskins are already thin at wide receiver, as free-agent pickup Pierre Garcon has missed the majority of the season and may not return this year, as noted by’s Gregg Rosenthal.

Washington will hope that Moss is able to recover quickly. Check back to this page for updates on his condition going forward.
