The Redskins were rushing to get a play off with 8:59 left, so Vikings coach Brad Childress couldn’t challenge a ruling that a reception by Santana Moss was inbounds. Washington ended up botching the snap, and Minnesota momentarily got the ball back at the Washington 47 down 25-14.
“There wasn’t a penalty flag with 12 men on the field,” Childress told reporters after the game. “So who is calling the 12 on the field? I’ve never seen it like that. I’ve never seen you lose a possession. Did we have 12 on? We did. But they changed personnel. The video is going to show that, and it’s irritating as [heck].”
Fullback Mike Sellers suffered a concussion and did not return to the game. He is expected to be available Sunday along with linebackers Khary Campbell (dislocated finger) and H.B. Blades (knee), lineman Lorenzo Alexander (shoulder) and safeties Vernon Fox (thumb) and Doughty (shoulder).
Several players who missed last week could return, including receiver Keenan McCardell (calf), safety Pierson Prioleau (hamstring) and tight end Todd Yoder (knee). Offensive lineman Mike Pucillo is likely to miss a third straight game with back problems, and Campbell (dislocated left knee cap) is also expected to miss the game against the Cowboys.
