Redskins' Chris Thompson Carted Off After Suffering Brutal Leg Injury

The Washington Redskins had a pretty massive "oh dear god no" moment on Sunday afternoon against the Saints, almost losing both Kirk Cousins and Chris Thompson on the same play while holding a lead in New Orleans.

The Redskins have suffered a number of injuries this season, but Thompson's could arguably be the biggest because of his productivity and the fact that he'll be hard to replace.

The Saints defense appeared less dominant than in recent games, giving up some big plays - most glaring, blown coverage on two second-half Redskins touchdowns that helped seal the outcome.

After being outplayed for nearly the entire game, the Saints staged a comeback for the ages with a 34-31 overtime victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Kamara finished Sunday's game with eight carries for 42 yards along with six catches for 75 yards and a score. It was the largest fourth quarter comeback in New Orleans Saints history.

The fifth-year running back from Florida State was in the midst of the best season of his career.

Cousins also took a heavy hit on the play and received brief treatment from trainers while Washington executed a successful fake punt on fourth-and-1 on its own 15.

The footage below shows the incident taking place, and it is definitely not for the squeamish.

Kirk Cousins found Chris Thompson for the first touchdown of the contest from 16 yards.

Thompson, who had four carries for 17 yards and a 16-yard touchdown reception, had a towel over his face while he was carted to the locker room at the Superdome.

Washington is likely to turn to rookie Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall as rushing options on offense in Thompson's absence.
