J.D. McKissic’s status after injury scare vs. Seahawks

J.D. McKissic, Washington Football Team

A huge sigh of relief for fans of Washington football, J.D. McKissic is going to be alright. The Washington  Football Team running back got into a scary collision with Seattle Seahawks safety Quandre Diggs, which saw McKissic dive and have his helmet collide with Diggs’ thigh. McKissic was carried off in a cart to be examined by the Washington Football staff.

McKissic’s agent Doug Hendrickson tweeted the running back’s status after Monday night’s game, and gave Washington fans some relief in the process:

McKissic himself has been having a good year, averaging 4.4 yards per carry throughout the season, and he logged in 4.3 yards per carry in Washington’s game against Seattle. The Washington Football Team went on to escape the Seahawks in a tight contest, winning 17-15. For the game, McKissic recorded 30 rush yards on 7 rush attempts, and 1 rushing touchdown, good to help carry his team past the finish line against Seattle.

While the collision worried fans, teammates, and coaches alike, Nicki Jhabavla reported after the game that McKissic did suffer what seemed to be a neck injury at the time, but was walking around the Washington locker room.

Washington’s running back will be instrumental to the team in the coming weeks, as the team stands at a tenuous 5-6 record in the NFC East, good for second in the division—behind the rolling 7-4 Dallas Cowboys. As McKissic’s tests seem to have come back clean, fans can expect him to suit up against the Las Vegas Raiders in their Week 13 showdown. This is assuming nothing goes awry for McKissic.
