Santana Moss’ return a welcome sight for Redskins’ offense

The Washington Redskins‘ depleted offense is about to get one of its key players back.

Receiver Santana Moss returned to practice Wednesday after missing the past four weeks with a broken left hand. He fully participated in the session and is expected to play Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.

“I feel like my hand is ready,” Moss said on his way off the practice field Wednesday.

Moss had pins removed from his hand last Monday and soon started catching passes as part of his recovery.

“I’m big on not trying to get everybody too crazy and getting their hopes up too high,” he said. “I just want to go out there and take today to see where I’m at and then tomorrow progress even more. But from the standpoint of just catching and running around, everything was pretty normal.”

Moss broke his hand when he fell on it while trying to catch a low pass against Carolina on Oct. 23. He had surgery and missed four games. His absence contributed to a major offensive slump that serves as the main cause of the Redskins‘ six-game losing streak.

Moss has 301 yards and two touchdowns on 25 catches this season.

“It feels great to have him back,” coach Mike Shanahan said. “The hand didn’t seem to bother him. He was catching the ball well coming in and out of the breaks. He looked pretty good.”
