Chris Samuels to miss next game against Chiefs

From The Associated Press:

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins left tackle Chris Samuels will miss next week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, another blow to an already fragile offensive line.

The six-time Pro Bowler suffered a stinger during the first quarter of Sunday's loss to Carolina.

Samuels had an MRI exam on Monday to determine the severity of his injury. Coach Jim Zorn said Samuels has "some tingling" and that Samuels needs time to "quiet this thing down."

The Redskins are already without right guard Randy Thomas, lost for the season with an arm injury.

For next week's game, the Redskins will rely on at least two linemen who didn't play in the league last season. With Samuels out, Washington managed only 198 yards total offense against the Panthers.
