Alfred Morris said the injury that caused him to leave the Carolina game early in the second quarter was a stinger, and that “they blew it out of proportion on TV.”
Morris missed just five plays because of injury in the 21-13 loss on Nov. 4 and left the game on his own, concerned staying in would lead to a mistake.
A stinger is a spine injury where nerves leading to an arm are stretched or compressed, leading to a temporary loss of sensation. He also left the Redskins’ game against Minnesota on Oct. 14 with a stinger, though the numbness was in his left arm. His right arm was the one affected against Carolina.

There were rumors last week that if Garcon didn't respond by the time the Redskins bye week was over, he could be shut down for the season. We may get an answer on Garcon before Sunday comes along.

Michael Vick knocked out of game
Sunday, November 11, 2012, 7:36pm
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has left Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys with what the team is calling an eye injury. The team also announced that Vick was being evaluated for a concussion.
Nick Foles completed 18-of-27 passes for one TD and one INT in Vick's place. After the game, Reid said Vick is still his starter if he's healthy, however, Vick will have to go through the normal testing in order to get back on the field. The Eagles get the Redskins this week in what would be a pretty good matchup for either QB. Keep in mind Foles is a rookie and while his overall numbers were solid against Dallas, he lacked pocket presence and threw up some balls that otherwise shouldn't have even been attempted. He'll make his share of mistakes if he gets the start, so turnovers could be an issue if you get negative points.

Both are trying to take the place of Pierre Garcon, who we really only saw one half of quality football from this season. It's possible Garcon could be kept out for the rest of the season if his foot isn't improved by the time the Skins are off their bye this week. Neither Robinson nor Hankerson are great options going forward, but Hank's play in the redzone does give him a slight edge.

"I really dont know."
There have been reports that Garcon could be shut down if he's not improved by Week 11, as the Skins have a bye in Week 10. Those who continue to stash away Garcon may have to re-evaluate the situation in a couple of weeks.
RG3 has X-rays on ribs

Griffin took a shot while dropping back a pass play early in the game. He was slow getting up, but didn’t leave the game. Griffin took another hard shot later in the game on a fourth-quarter run that ended with him going airborne while being sandwiched by two Panthers defenders. He jumped right up after the play.
Griffin and Coach Mike Shanahan said that the quarterback and the team learned that he is suffering from sore ribs, but that there are not fractures.
“I’m fine. I’ll be ready to go,” Griffin said after the game. “No one is ever going to question the fight I have inside myself to be the greatest and to help this team to victory. It doesn’t matter what it is, I will make sure that I continue to help my team win games and that it starts right after the bye.”
The Redskins are on bye this week, so Griffin will have two weeks to heal.
