Injuries piling up for Redskins

Injuries are not exclusive to the Bills. Buffalo's next opponent, the Washington Redskins, have been hit hard in the last two weeks.

The Redskins announced Monday that starting running back Tim Hightower tore an ACL in Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers and will be out for the season. Wide receiver Santana Moss broke his hand and will miss five-to-seven weeks, according to a report by the Washington Post.

Skins linebacker London Fletcher, the former Bill, also suffered a left hamstring injury against Carolina, and his status for Sunday's game in Toronto is uncertain.

Two weeks ago, the Redskins lost starting left guard Kory Lichtensteiger for the season, also to a torn ACL. In the same game, starting left tackle Trent Williams suffered a high ankle sprain, making his availability for the game against the Bills unlikely.
