Question of the Day
Concussed right tackle Tyler Polumbus was cleared to participate in the walk-through portion of Redskins practice Thursday. He would fully participate in Friday’s practice if he remains asymptomatic, coach Mike Shanahan said.
Strong safety DeJon Gomes (sprained MCL, left knee) was limited in practice. Playing without Gomes against Dallas on Sunday would impact the strong safety rotation the Redskins have employed in Brandon Meriweather’s absence.
“We would just put the next guy in,” defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said. “DJ is really good in the box. That’s what he did in college. He was a dime linebacker. We’re just trying to put those guys in positions where they can help us win.”
Linebacker London Fletcher (sprained left ankle) was limited. The Redskins practiced inside their indoor practice facility because wind gusts of up to 30 mph made it unsafe to film an outdoor practice from the lifts. They also practiced indoors Wednesday because of the rain and snow.
Before the facility opened in the spring, practices on such days were held at an airport hangar or a local basketball gym — not exactly the best way to prepare for a division title game.
“We couldn’t have gone out there [Wednesday] and been productive at all,” Shanahan said.
