You don’t really hear this type of story often, but sometimes I guess even professional teams make mistakes on the road. The Washington Redskins were in Minnesota on Sunday for their game against the Vikings. While they were on their way to the stadium, one of the team buses collided with other one and the front of one had a cracked windshield. Washington players on that bus were transferred to a different bus. It was reported that one escorting officer did hurt his leg and running back Silas Redd sustained back spasms during the crash, therefore not being able to play in the game.
Pierre Garcon tweeted out an image of the bus with the cracked windshield:

The official twitter account of the Washington Redskins also tweeted out their safe arrival at the stadium:
Coaches, players and staff have arrived at TCF Bank Stadium safely. Thanks for your thoughts! #HTTR

We’re just thankful that there were no fatal injuries and the Redskins were able to make it to the stadium on time. However, the Redskins did lose to the Vikings 26-29 so maybe they can use this accident as an excuse that caused emotional stress.
