03:25 PM ET 11.02 | Washington Redskins linebacker Perry Riley has been declared questionable for the team's Week 9 matchup against the Carolina Panthers due to a hamstring injury, according to the official injury report released by the team on Friday afternoon. In addition, wide receiver Pierre Garcon (foot) and safety Brandon Meriweather (knee) have already been ruled out for the contest. Garcon has been battling the foot injury since the season opener against the New Orleans Saints. Meriweather strained the MCL and PCL in his left knee during the preseason and then re-aggravated the injury during warmups prior to Week 4's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Earlier in the week he had expressed a desire to make his season debut against Carolina.

The worst of Americian people, take a 4shit team like the skins, draft a good QB ignore the rest of the problems because the Shannahans are morons, and the FAN are clammering for a SB visit. You and the Dolts need to get a grip

The 'skins always have trouble with the injury bug. I could understand it when Shanahan started, because the roster was old. But their avg age is in line with the rest of the league. A few of the former players (LaRon Landry, Malcom Kelly) have complained about the training staff. Granted, those two aren't the best specimens of ideal athletes, but their comments coupled with the constant nagging injuries regardless of who is on the roster makes me wonder if there is something to their comments.

Every Team has Injuries and are banged up, the difference maker is good depth and good players and good coaching, something that the Skins are addressing but their not there yet!!!
