Josh Wilson’s Status Unknown Vs. Dallas
ASHBURN – Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan provided no update on the status of cornerback Josh Wilson, who was nearly carted off the field after sustaining an injury in the 22-21 victory over Arizona on Sunday.
Wilson tried to make a tackle on Arizona running back Chris “Beanie” Wells with 13:48 remaining in the third quarter, but his head appeared to hit Wells’ right knee. He remained on the field for several minutes, walking off only as a cart with a stretcher drove up to him.
“There’s no reason to really talk about injuries until we get a good feel for what’s going to happen on Thursday when we practice,” Shanahan said Monday. “We’ll let them go to treatment. I haven’t even talked to Larry [Hess, the head athletic trainer] today.”
When asked about the severity of Wilson’s injury, Shanahan remained mum.
“Yeah, lower back, head, neck – a combination of all those things,” Shanahan said. “But I told you after the game that it wasn’t too bad. I still feel that way. He’s no more sore today than he was after the game.”
Wilson, who signed a three-year, $13.5 million contract after the lockout ended to join Washington from Baltimore, had three tackles against the Cardinals and five in the season opener against the New York Giants.
