Cofield was among four key Redskins injured on Monday night. The list includes quarterback Kirk Cousins and wide receivers Aldrick Robinson and Leonard Hankerson.
According to Russell, the index and middle finger on Cofield's right hand were taped up after he came out of the game, and the initial prognosis is not positive.
After the bad luck Washington has had with injuries in recent years, these latest injuries seem to have cruel timing. Although the severity of each is unclear at this point, no injury news is good news for a team already missing its starting quarterback, Robert Griffin III, as he returns from a torn ACL.
