Santana Moss Injury: Redskins WR Will Be Out 5-7 Weeks, Mike Shanahan Says

Sanata Moss left the Washington Redskins Week 7 loss to the Carolina Panthers with a hand injury and several followup reports indicated he was likely to miss 3-4 weeks with a broken hand.

It's actually a little worse than that. Mike Shanahan said in his Monday press conference that Moss is likely to miss 5-7 weeks with the injury.

Another injury for a Redskins team that lost Tim Hightower for the season last weekend.

The timing of Moss's return could be important. The Redskins are 3-3, right in the middle of the NFC East race, and host the Jets six weeks from now, and the Patriots seven weeks from now. 

Moss has 25 receptions for 301 yards and two touchdowns on the season.
