Right tackle Tyler Polumbus also said he was planning to play after suffering a concussion in the Redskins‘ victory over the Cleveland Browns. Polumbus took part in Wednesday’s walk-through but was limited in practice.
“We have a couple different directions we could go,” Shanahan said. “Obviously, we have [Tom] Compton, we have [Maurice] Hurt, but we aren’t going to get into detail there for obvious reasons.”
It would be a challenge if there are any changes along the offensive line, which has remained in tact for a vast majority of the season.
“I don’t see a new group of guys going out there competing together,” Lichtensteiger said. “I think we’ll have all our guys in, and I think we’ll be consistent as we have been.”
“He’s got upper part of the biceps tendon, and you can play with that. Pretty painful right now, but people have played with that,” Shanahan said. “Now, if it was the lower part of the biceps, he would be out and he’d have surgery. But the upper part of the biceps you can play with, and hopefully he’ll be able to do that.”
Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (shoulder) wore a no-contact jersey and was limited in practice. The Redskins signed linebacker Vic So’oto off the Green Bay Packers’ practice squad Wednesday, but Alexander expects to play.
“[My shoulder is] doing well. I had a stinger out there, so just trying to make sure the nerves and stuff kind of come back,” Alexander said. “And a lot of that will start happening once the swelling goes down, getting the strength back.”
Veteran linebacker London Fletcher (left ankle) did not practice, but that has been typical in recent weeks. His streak of games played stands at 238.View Entire Story
