  • Another Injured Player on Troubled Washington Reds

    Another Injured Player on Troubled Washington Redskins

    October 10, 2001

    The troubled Washington Redskins lost another player during last Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants, reports the Associated Press.

    Defensive end Bruce Smith suffered a dislocated shoulder and expects to be out for two to three weeks.

    The injury occurred during the first offensive play of the game. Smith walked off the field and did not return. The 38-year-old was later diagnosed with a dislocated right shoulder.

    An MRI revealed no structural damage to Smith’s shoulder, which is good news for him and the team. He will need to take time off to rest but will not require surgery.

    The Redskins are off to a poor start this season. They are 0-4 and have already lost starting outside linebacker Shawn Barber for the season with a torn ACL. Their most embarrassing loss so far has been to the Kansas City Chiefs. The final score was 45-13.

    Smith is widely regarded as one of the best defensive ends to play professional football. The first 15 years of his career were spent with the Buffalo Bills, during which time the team won four Super Bowls.
