Anthony Armstrong Has Unique Solution To Jersey Issue
ASHBURN – When Anthony Armstrong returned to practice Monday, the Washington Redskins’ receiver knew he was doing so with a second-degree sprain of the AC joint in his right shoulder.
To remedy any potential setback, Armstrong donned a yellow non-contact jersey – the types usually worn by a quarterback. That jersey was without a number, and as he walked to the Redskins’ indoor training facility for the team’s morning walkthrough, he vowed to change that.
Armstrong came up with a unique solution, taping an upside-down question mark to the front of the jersey. A regular question mark was applied to the back.
“I hadn’t seen the question mark before,” head coach Mike Shanahan said, smiling. “I have to admit – that was something new.”
Armstrong sustained the injury on Thursday while trying to make a catch. Monday marked the first day he was able to return to practice.
