It was deja vu for Washington quarterbacks on Sunday.

Washington quarterback Kyle Allen was diagnosed with a dislocated ankle, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Allen was carted off after falling awkwardly after being sacked by Giants safety Jabril Peppers. He will have an MRI on Monday afternoon to confirm the severity of the injury.

In the last two years, the Washington Football team has dealt with three quarterbacks who have suffered season-ending leg injuries (via JP Finlay). Allen, Colt McCoy, and Alex Smith.

Smith replaced Allen for the rest of the game. He was 24 for 32, 325 yards, a touchdown, and three mind-numbing interceptions.

The Washington Football Team lost 23-20 and is 2-6 on the season.

More from the NFC

  • The Giants earned their second win of the season and quarterback Daniel Jones remains “undefeated.” Seriously, Jones is 4-0 vs the Washington Football Team with eight touchdowns, three interceptions, and a 100 quarterback rating. Why is this important? Because he is 1-16 against the rest of the NFL and an absurdly low 79.7 quarterback rating.
  • Cowboys continue to deal with offensive line injuries, but this one was before kickoff. Rookie starting center Tyler Biadasz was a late-game scratch after suffering a hamstring injury, according to Jane Slater of NFL Network. The 2020 fourth-round pick injured his hamstring while going through pregame warmups. Veteran offensive lineman Joe Looney replaced him at center vs the Steelers. That is five different offensive line combos in eight games.
  • Cowboys’ injury woes continue. Rookie cornerback Trevon Diggs was diagnosed with a foot injury (via Patrik Walker of CBS Sports). Diggs suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter against the undefeated Steelers. The 2020 second-round pick will have an MRI on Monday. The Cowboys will be on a bye next week.
