Washington Football Team tight end Ricky Seals-Jones suffered a neck injury after colliding with a cameraman during Sunday’s Week 17 battle against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was carted off the field and immediately ruled out of the contest.

WFT will be down a potentially key player on offense for the rest of the contest as they battle an NFC East rival on Sunday. Seals-Jones has stepped in for an injured Logan Thomas for most of the season and has put up moderate numbers. Through 12 games, he has caught 29 of 47 targets for 263 yards and two touchdowns as the team has hung onto the periphery of the NFC playoff race.

With RSJ now out of the picture, John Bates will step in as the presumed TE1 for Washington in this matchup. He already has one reception for 24 yards in the contest. Washington currently has a 13-7 lead over the Eagles.
