Blood in Egg?! Not the Usual little spot

Today I cracked an egg open and there was a substantial blood spot--I wish I'd gotten pics.
It spread out over the surface of the yolk in a bright red, nickel-sized circle.
One of our hens was attacked by a dog last year, and has been limping and underweight ever since--I wonder if she laid the egg, if maybe its a sign that something else is going on w/her?
We have 4 hens, and they all lay brown eggs, so I am not sure which one laid it.
Is this abnormal? Is it a sign of a health problem?
Any advice would be welcome!!
