Moses, Minnifield Hurt in Redskins' Preseason Loss

The Baltimore Ravens came away with a 23-17 victory over the Washington Redskins in preseason action on Saturday night, but for Virginia football fans the more noticeable losses came before the game was over.

Redskins' offensive tackle and former UVa star Morgan Moses suffered an MCL sprain in the third quarter of the loss. The team confirmed the injury after but did not know how severe the sprain was.

Former UVa cornerback Chase Minnifield, who is battling for a spot on the Redskins' roster, suffered a hamstring injury. Minnifield told reporters after that he expects to be ready to play by the next preseason game.

In the Redskins' loss, Robert Griffin III struggled, finishing 5-for-8 with no touchdowns and an interception. Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 14-of-20 passes, throwing two touchdowns and no interceptions.

The Redskins will play their final preseason game on Thursday at Tampa Bay. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
