Update, 10/9 at 1 a.m.: This keeps getting worse:

The Washington Redskins got smashed on Monday Night Football, and it wasn't just on the scoreboard. After suffering a rash of injuries, the Redskins will limp back to Washington with the bye week already in the rear-view mirror.

Josh Norman was nursing a hamstring injury coming into this week and hit the pine late in the first half. It's possible that he was benched because of performance in the first half, but he was replaced by rookie seventh-rounder Greg Stroman to start the second half. Stroman was targeted by Drew Brees on consecutive passes, including a 35-yard touchdown that left Stroman trailing all the way to the end zone.

Whatever ailed Norman seemed to clear up after that drive, and he re-entered the game. It is unclear why he was not available to start the second half.

Adrian Peterson avoided major injury on a scary hit during the opening drive but was not attended to by doctors during the game. It is likely that he was lifted because the game became non-competitive.

Here are the other notable injuries that were confirmed to have happened during the game:

They join wide receiver Josh Doctson (heel), who was inactive on Monday.
