October 14-- Skins suffer more O-line injuries in 17-14 loss at GB

The Redskins fell to the packers 17-14 after being held scoreless in the second half partially due to turnovers and partially due to an array of injuries that crushed the offensive line..

C Casey Rabach suffered a groin injury, the severity of which won’t be disclosed until tomorrow, he could not return and was replaced by back-up center Mike Pucillo..

T Todd Wade left in the first half with a hamstring injury that he admitted happened earlier last week which limited him in practice.. His replacement Stephon Heyer suffered a hamstring injury as well forcing Wade back into the game at the end because the team had no one else to play.. he described the situation as “dire straights,” but is believed not to have a serious injury..

The team de-activated G Rick Demulling, he likely will be active next week against Arizona if the team does not have Wade/Rabach/Heyer..

WR Santana Moss had a few drops including a long pass down the sideline that hit him in the helmet.. he also had a ball tip off his hands that ended up being intercepted by Charles Woodson even though Antwaan Randle El may have had possession of the ball as well.. Moss also fumbled a second half reverse that was returned for the decisive score by Woodson.. Moss then took himself out of the game dealing with a hamstring injury and said he wanted some others to go in to “try to make some play.” Moss shouldered the blame for the loss saying he is probably going “ to want to break my TV when I see the things I did tonight.” Moss’s coaches and teammates came to his defense saying no one player should shoulder any of the blame for the loss and the mood in the locker room was essentially that despite the injuries and mistakes, the team had every opportunity to win..

TE Chris Cooley who had 9 catches for 105 yards and a touchdown said the injuries began to add up where the team was not going to be able to run to the right and that the Packers were aware of this..

RB Clinton Portis said “I need to stop fumbling the ball,” after he lost a second half fumble that resulted in no Packer points when Mason Crosby missed a field goal..

Other injuries: WR James Thrash (leg contusion) he continued playing.. CB Leigh Torrence (sprained knee) but continued playing as well..

The team de-activated WR Reche Caldwell in favor of Brandon Lloyd who just missed catching a touchdown throw when the ball slipped off his fingers as he dove full out for a Campbell pass.. Lloyd was slowed by a chest injury that occurred during that play but also returned to the game.. James Thrash started for the second straight week this time in place of Antwaan randle El who did play despite suffering a hamstring injury in the Lions game.. he still has yet to miss a game in his NFL career..

LB Marcus Washington was not active due to a hamstring injury.. He was replaced in the starting line-up by Randall Godfrey.. Sean Taylor had two interceptions helping Brett Favre break the all time mark for most interceptions in a career..

The Skins have not won in Green Bay since 1986..

OK men..

Was Lloyd playing because he's slowly regaining favor with the team or was it just in the eyes of the coaches a necessary evil to play him?

I was really excited for him to see the deep ball thrown his way. That would have been an amazing catch.

I think a little bit of both.. Players have been supportive of Lloyd in recent weeks and with WR injuries, maybe he'll get more chances..

Does this rash of O'line injuries effectively guarantee Randy being placed on IR? With the trade deadline fast approaching could we see some last minute deals?

I would just like to say a few things about our great D !
Carlos Rodgers could not tackle my Mother and Sean T. dropped a pick in the Packers first drive that was a easy 6 . Lets not be so fast to blame Santana

I'm tired of all the fucking bullshit.

Most teams would be 5-0 but we KEEP KEEP KEEP finding ways to lose. What the heck is wrong with Washington, D.C.?

Bram, why did I see you smiling while holding your mic up to Santana Moss during the Post Game Live interview? You're sick, Bram.

Man, I really like Santana, that was hard to watch..

Gibbs says trades are "very unlikely" to fix the O-line..

As for Randy, we shall see, depends if these guys can heal fast and not force the team's hands..
