Redskins Long Snapper Nick Sundberg Played with a Broken Arm on Sunday

| by

Two negative plays on special teams were the only times the DC Skins did not look in control during their thrashing of the Saints. The Saints blocked a punt, and later a knuckleball snap was mishandled by the punter.

It turns out there was a fair reason: long snapper Nick Sundberg was playing with a broken arm. I emphatically hope he returns to the team as soon as his ulna heals. Hail, Nick Sundberg. You are a true American football hero. Hail.

UPDATE: The Raiders lost their long-snapper to injury on Monday night. The result was three botched snaps and a loss.
