By all accounts the turf at Fed Ex Field was in horrible condition. It's the same field Adrian Peterson shredded his knee on last year so there's a bad history associated with the playing surface. Redskins owner Dan Snyder is responsible for the maintenance and the up keep of the facility so there's no excuse or explanation as to why the field wasn't up to NFL standards. It seems odd that a billionaire would decide to cut corners and act in a miserly fashion when it comes to player safety.
If I was Chris Clemons I would sue the Washington Redskins organization. The average career for an NFL player is 3 1/2 years and the contracts aren't guaranteed. If a player suffers a serious injury the economic ramifications can be dramatic. What if Chris Clemons doesn't recover from knee ligament damage? What if he gets an infection during surgery? What if the Seahawks decide he is no longer the player he was and cuts him? Shouldn't someone take responsibility?
