Skins WR Moss has surgery, expected out a month

Washington Post - [Full Article]

Washington Redskins wide receiver Santana Moss tweeted that he is having surgery on his broken left hand this afternoon, a day after he injured it in the first half of Washington’s 33-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

It’s expected that Moss will miss at least a month of playing time.

Moss, who entered Sunday’s game leading all Redskins wide receivers with 22 catches for 284 yards and two touchdowns, suffered the injury while trying to break his fall on a play. He recorded two catches for 17 yards before he was injured.

Fantasy Impact: 

Anthony Armstrong and Niles Paul should benefit and get more time at WR, however John Beck is far from a strong fantasy QB at this point so don't get too excited about these waiver guys. Jabar Gaffney looks to be Washington's WR1.
