by Chuck Carroll

PHILADELPHIA — A trio of Washington Redskins will undergo MRIs for knee injuries sustained in the team’s 24-16 road loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Wide receiver Leonard Hankerson suffered a possible injury to the lateral collateral ligament in his left knee, head coach Mike Shanahan revealed.

Defensive end Stephen Bowen, who suffered a posterior cruciate ligament tear against the Chicago Bears earlier this season, now appears to be battling a cartilage injury according to Shanahan.

The Redskins also fear cornerback EJ Biggers tore the meniscus in his right knee.

Rookie tight end Jordan Reed suffered a concussion in the loss and must now go through league protocol for head injuries before he may return.
