Terrance "Pot Roast" Knighton has been ruled out of the Redskins Week 9 matchup against the New England Patriots due to a migraine. He remained in Washington as the team flew to New England on Saturday. (redskins.com)
Losing "Pot Roast" is a big loss for the Redskins defense, who face the tall task of trying to slow down Tom Brady and the Patriots this week. Knighton's presence leaves a big void in the run defense, and they'll also miss his ability in the passing game to eat up blocking and free up the edge rushers. It could be a long day for the Washington defense.
