The Ugly – Part 2

1. The Injuries

The Redskins suffered some significant injuries against the Giants that affected the outcome of the game.  The first was left guard Shawn Lauvao as he left early on with an ankle injury.  This was significant because Lauvao had been playing so well in the first two games.

Josh LeRibeus came on in relief and wasn’t terrible but losing Lauvao was huge.  Then in the second quarter the Redskins lost cornerback DeAngelo Hall to what appeared to be a foot injury.  Hall planted his foot to make a play and came up lame.

Bashaud Breeland replaced Hall and struggled mightily in his stead.  Breeland played with no confidence and Eli Manning made it  point to pick on him when the opportunity presented itself as Breeland gave two long TD passes.

One to Odell Beckham Jr. and the other to a previously struggling Rueben Randle.  Before the game Breeland said he would be aggressive in his play against Beckham but he looked timid, at times lining up several yards off the receiver.

The Redskins needed Breeland to come up with big plays on those passes but we was unable to.
