Our friends from Hogs Haven (along with numerous other sources) are reporting that the Washington Redskins' team buses collided today on the way to TCF Bank Stadium for the game between the Redskins and the Minnesota Vikings.
According to reports, the police escort for the buses missed the exit to the stadium and slammed on the brakes. The first bus (which had mostly administrative types and coaches) did the same, and the second bus (which contained most of the players) ran into the first bus.
All of the players are reportedly okay, and the Redskins' Twitter account is reporting that all of the players made it to the stadium on time.
So this just happened. But we are ok. http://t.co/TFW5EB4PZX pic.twitter.com/rNcaB6MG4b— Pierre Garçon (@PierreGarcon) November 2, 2014
A police officer was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Hopefully he comes out of all of this okay.
Redskins' wide receiver Keenan Robinson was able to find some humor in the whole situation.

All in all, we're glad that nearly everyone appears to have made it out okay. Seriously, this would be weird if it happened anywhere but Minnesota.
