The New Orleans Saints faced a dire situation on Sunday, but somehow, some way, they extended their winning streak to eight games with a 34-31 win over Washington at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson suffered a leg injury late in the third quarter against the Saints, causing him to be carted off the field.

With many significant injuries suffered throughout the National Football League, fantasy football owners have had to be up to date on their wavier wire knowledge especially in a season that very few players are consistently putting up quality numbers. He returned for the first defensive play of the second half, but then went to the locker room and missed the rest of the game. A devasting blow for the team who had already lost another running back for the year in Rob Kelley earlier in the season.

The Redskins have suffered a number of injuries this season, but Thompson's could arguably be the biggest because of his productivity and the fact that he'll be hard to replace.

The dual-threat running back left the game after having four carries for 17 yards as well as one catch going for a 16-yard touchdown.

The loss of Thompson would seriously hurt the Redskins' hopes of making a playoff run.
