​Coming off a 26-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, the Redskins are looking to improve their record to 4-2 on the season this weekend. 


However, they'll have to do so without kicker Dustin Hopkins. 


According to Ian Rapoport, the veteran kicker is out for Week 7 due to a hip injury. 

​​This truly is bad news for Washington. 


This isn't just a minor ding, either. A partially torn muscle doesn't sound pleasant whatsoever. Plus, this may not just hold him out for one week. He could miss multiple weeks, which obviously isn't good news for the special teams unit. 

Time for Washington to bring in some free-agent kickers and see if someone can man up and knock the ball in between the posts. 


Kickers don't always get a ton of love, but the sooner the Redskins can get Hopkins back on the field, the better.
