FedEx Field Playing Surface Being Re-Sodded During Away Games
- Updated: November 5, 2013
Following the Washington Redskins overtime victory against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday grounds workers began re-sodding the playing surface at FedEx Field.
Many will remember that the playing surface at FedEx Field became a major source of criticism a year ago after the Redskins lost in the first round of the playoffs against the Seattle Seahawks. That game marked the day that rookie phenom quarterback Robert Griffin III injured his right knee.
The NFL announced in the offseason that it would be more proactive this season in monitoring the condition of playing surfaces in stadiums league-wide. Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen said in the offseason that the team had missed an opportunity to re-sod the field last season, suggesting that it would not miss a similar chance this season.
The Redskins next two games are on the road in Minnesota on Thursday night and November 17th in Philly. The team won’t play at home again until November 25, a Monday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers.
