Santana Moss Fully Cleared To Play Against Philadelphia After Concussion
ASHBURN – Santana Moss said the concussion he sustained late in the Washington Redskins’ loss to Carolina on Nov. 4 “really wasn’t bad” and that he passed all subsequent tests, freeing him to play against Philadelphia on Sunday.
The receiver left the game in the fourth quarter when he collided with Panthers cornerback Josh Norman while running a route.
The team required its injured players to remain in the area and receive medical treatment during the week, but Moss was given time off when he was cleared by a team physician and an independent neurologist.
“I mean, I ain’t supposed to talk much about it, but it really wasn’t bad,” said Moss, who practiced with his teammates on Monday without restriction. “This is the first time y’all are talking to me, but I walked out of there the day of the game just like this, so I’m cool. I appreciate it.”
Moss, working primarily as the Redskins’ slot receiver this season, has caught 24 passes for 313 yards and a team-high five touchdowns.
