Cornerback DeAngelo Hall will start after missing the last three games with a sprained right knee and fullback Mike Sellers is back after sitting out last week with internal bleeding in his left thigh.
However, defensive tackle Cornelius Griffin is inactive with a sprained shoulder. Griffin, a well-known warrior, must be really hurting to sit out against his former team, the Giants.
Stephon Heyer fought through his long-ailing right knee that kept him out of practice on Thursday and Friday to stay in the lineup at right tackle.
Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, out three of the past four games with a sprained left ankle, is back, too. And veteran defensive end Renaldo Wynn, who played last year for the Giants, is active for the first time this season.
Other than Griffin, Washington’s inactives are third quarterback Richard Bartel, offensive linemen Paul Fanaika and Edwin Williams, receiver Marko Mitchell, linebackers Alvin Bowen and Curtis Gatewood and cornerback Kevin Barnes.
