Redskins Add 4 Eagles to Endangered Species List

One adjective I wouldn't use to describe this Redskins team prior to the season was "physical," especially given the age of this roster. That was clearly not the case on Sunday. The Redskins battered four of the Eagles key players and Andy Reid spoke this morning on the injuries:

"Michael Vick has a rib cartilage injury. There are no broken bones, but he does have a rib cartilage injury. It's up high in the second and third ribs. LeSean McCoy has a rib fracture and they're doing some further tests on that but right now he has one rib fracture."     

WR Riley Cooper and CB Asante Samuel also suffered concussions - Samuels got his concussion courtesy of trying to take on Mike Sellers. Injuries aside, the Redskins had a pop to their play yesterday that made them exciting to watch. Ryan Torain's steamroll of Quintin Mikell and  Lorenzo Alexander's pummeling of Jorrick Calvin on the kickoff return are the grand highlights of that. Who would have thought it'd be DHall involved on the play knocking a QB out? Hopefully this team can keep the momentum going against a very physical defense in the Green Bay Packers
