Team’s Well Wishes To Richard Crawford

If Saturday’s dominance of the Buffalo Bills was any inclination of what’s in store for the Washington Redskins in the coming months—well you’ll love the usually loathed Monday mornings.

Even with the third and fourth quarterbacks on the unofficial team depth chart, the Redskins offense was clicking on all cylinders and for a second-straight game the defense bottled up the opponent’s rushing attack, giving up only 92 yards on 26 carries this go-round.

One of the biggest storylines to come out of the game though, was the loss of second-year cornerback/returner Richard Crawford. On a routine punt return in the first quarter, Crawford went down with an injury that head coach Mike Shanahan later revealed as damage to at least one ligament.

Crawford isn’t the first player to sustain a knee injury and unfortunately won’t be the last. As Redskins fans know all too well now, there are multiple players on the current squad (Robert Griffin III, Chris Thompson, Chris Neild, Jarvis Jenkins, Chase Minnifield) who have all not only suffered knee injuries, but have come back as well.

One of the keys to the Redskins seven-game winning streak last season was team camaraderie. It isn’t a you do your thing and I’ll do mine sort of mindset. They know they can’t succeed without the contributions from each and every player. So when news broke that Crawford went down with an injury, the team send out well wishes to a speedy recovery.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III:

Crawford knows that while this is a setback; the hardest work starts now.

    Bruce Allen and Daniel Snyder need to do the right thing by Crawford and bring him back. Cutting him while he’s hurt is very uncool. I can only hope it was nothing more than a procedural move that will allow him to go on the IR. He is a very good player who seems like someone who deserves a chance to come back and make the team in 2014.

    Feel better, Craw!
