Redskins RB Betts hurts left forearm
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Redskins running back Ladell Betts
injured his left forearm against Buffalo on Sunday, and coach Steve
Spurrier said a bone might be broken.
Spurrier said Betts was hurt when he was kicked in the arm while
blocking during the first half of Washington's 24-7 loss.
Betts was making his first NFL start, replacing Trung Canidate,
who sat out with a sprained right ankle. Betts had eight carries
for 11 yards in the first half.
Return specialist Chad Morton took over at the start of the
second half and got off to a solid start. Morton provided 23 yards
rushing and 3 yards receiving in helping Washington score on its
opening drive to cut Buffalo's lead to 10-7.
Rod Gardner capped the 76-yard drive with a 25-yard reception
from Patrick Ramsey.
