Redskins’ Kory Lichtensteiger hopes ankle will cooperate

Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson has been on the other side of Sunday’s wild-card matchup. He was a rookie for the top-seeded Seattle Seahawks in 2007-08 when they ended the Redskins‘ season the last time Washington made the playoffs.

The Redskins won four straight that year to earn the last wild-card spot, the No. 6 seed, after safety Sean Taylor was murdered that November.

It seemed almost supernatural the way the Redskins responded to that tragedy. But second-string quarterback Todd Collins crashed back to Earth in a 35-14 loss that January afternoon in Seattle.

Having been with the Redskins for two seasons now and rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III for one, Wilson expects a different outcome Sunday.

“We have a little better quarterback than Collins back there now,” he said. “I think we’re going to have a better game than that.”

Extra points

Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins did not practice Wednesday as he’s battling the flu. Cornerback D.J. Johnson (knee) did not practice, and safety DeJon Gomes (knee) was limited. Rookie running back Alfred Morris was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his 200-yard, three-touchdown performance against the Cowboys.
