Washington Redskins have lost the services of Tim Hightower for the rest the rest of the NFL season after the running back suffered a torn left knee ligament.
To add to their woes, receiver Santana Moss will alo miss up to seven weeks with a broken left hand.
The Redskins have now lost five offensive starters to significant injuries in their last two games.
Hightower was hurt on a run in the third quarter of Sunday’s 33-20 loss to Carolina.
Moss was injured in the first half of the game and had surgery on Monday.
Washington lost tight end Chris Cooley, left tackle Trent Williams and left guard Kory Lichtensteiger to injury in the previous week, when the Redskins fell to Philadelphia.
