Redskins receiver Santana Moss was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week yesterday after catching three touchdown passes in the Redskins’ 35-20 win over the New York Giants on Saturday.

Moss is the third Redskins player in as many weeks to earn NFL honors. Return man Antonio Brown and defensive end Phillip Daniels were honored for their performances in wins over Arizona and Dallas, respectively.

Moss caught five passes for 160 yards against the Giants, including touchdowns of 19, 52 and 72 yards.

He also earned player of the week honors in September when he caught five passes for 159 yards, including two late touchdowns in the Redskins’ 14-13 win at Dallas.

Meanwhile, the season ended for linebacker Chris Clemons yesterday when the team placed him on injured reserve.

Clemons sustained a partially torn medial collateral ligament in the win over the Giants. He finished the season with eight tackles and two sacks in 14 games.

The Redskins did not immediately fill the roster spot.

In a practice squad move, the Redskins signed tight end Calen Powell and released tight end David Kashetta. Powell, who played at Duke, was released from Seattle’s practice squad in October.
