Redskins vs. Atlanta Falcons: Week 5 Injury Report

The bad new is that the Redskins Secondary took another blow with nickel back Cedric Griffin ruled to be definitely out this week against the best passing game the Redskins have seen so far this year.  This is in addition to another game without either of our starting safeties playing today.  Meriweather is still recovering from a setback that occurred during pregame warm-ups last week in Tampa.  The good news is that Trent Williams is expected to play which allows the RG3 and the Shanahan clan able to open up the play book and put up points against the Falcons.  Below is the full injury report.  I will be updating you later today with the official inactive list.
