Redskins Lose Hightower, Moss to Injury 

NFL/Washington Redskins(ASHBURN, Va) -- Washington Redskins running back Tim Hightower will be out for the season after tearing his ACL in his left knee, and on top of that wide receiver Santana Moss will now miss 5-7 weeks of action with a broken bone in his left hand.

Moss was hurt during the first half and Hightower went down during the third quarter of Sunday's 33-20 loss to the Panthers.

This is now a total of five offensive starters who have been sidelined for Washington with significant injuries in the last two weeks.  Before Moss and Hightower suffered the injury bug, they lost tight end Chris Cooley, left tackle Trent Williams and left guard Kory Lichtensteiger during the game against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6.

They'll travel to Buffalo this week for a showdown with the Bills.

Report: Palmer Accepts $5 Million Pay Cut (TEST TEST TEST)

(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- Carson Palmer took a $5 million pay to play with the Oakland Raiders this season, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Palmer, who was acquired by the Raiders in exchange for a 2012 first-round pick and a conditional first-rounder in 2013, was set to make a prorated figure of $7.44 million this year. According to Schefter, Palmer accepted a pay cut that will see him earn $2.5 for the rest of the season.

The Raiders also guaranteed $5 of his $12.5 million contract next season after potentially giving up two first round picks -- the 2013 pick becomes a first-rounder if the Raiders make it to the AFC Championship Game this season.

Palmer, 31, has yet to play this season after demanding a trade from the Bengals during the summer. The nine-year veteran passed for 3,970 yards with 26 touchdowns and 20 interceptions in 2010.
