The Washington Redskins are facing a big test against the Baltimore Ravens this week, but will be without the services of Cedric Griffin due to his PED suspension and DeAngelo Hall for an ankle injury.
This is a particular challenge with the no huddle offense of the Ravens, one can be sure they will put pressure on the Redskins substitution packages and communication could be an issue.
The Redskins trail the New York Giants by only 1 game and there is no room for adjustment, the next man up has to produce or it’s the Redskins season.
“We’ve lost guy after guy,” cornerback Josh Wilson said according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post. “It’s unfortunate.
But like I say, the next guy has to be able to step up without a hitch and make the plays he was making, if not more.”
“The next guy has to be able to play, has to be able to go out there and perform and step up for us.”
“It’s part of the beast,” Hall said. “Whether it’s of somebody else’s own doing or a freak injury or something like that happens, there’s nothing I can do to control it, nothing these coaches can do to control those particular situations.”
“We’re excited to get those young guys out there, get them on the field, see what they can do,” Hall said. “No stage and no time like the present.
They’re stepping into some bright lights. Hopefully they’re up for the challenge and we’ll keep getting them prepared out here in practice and in the film room so that they’re ready to go.”
