Our look at the draft classes of 2011-2012 continues with Maurice Hurt needing to battle a couple of years of inactivity to make this year's Redskins team.
Redskins offensive lineman Maurice Hurt will be placed on season-ending injured reserve later Wednesday, according to Coach Mike Shanahan.
Redskins' OL Maurice Hurt, sidelined since May with a knee injury, will learn his fate today.
Right tackles generally aren't valued as highly as left tackles, largely because right tackles don't protect a right-handed quarterback's blind side. That creates an interesting dichotomy when it comes to drafting them.
"He's used to playing," said Baltimore Ravens receiver Deonte Thompson, who played with Tim Tebow in 2008 and 2009. "He's a guy that started his whole life. It's new to him. He's going through something right now."
Still bothered by the effects of a concussion, Washington Redskins right tackle Tyler Polumbus did not practice Wednesday. His status is uncertain for Sunday's NFC East-deciding game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Cedric Griffin's four-game drug suspension has created an opportunity for some of the Washington Redskins' unproven cornerbacks to contribute to a possible postseason push.
It took three quarters Sunday for the Washington Redskins' offense to move the ball effectively without Trent Williams. The left tackle's injury looked bad as his right knee gave out on him early and later when he returned, and he essentially was blocking on one leg.

Chris Cooley was pleased by his performance filling in for fullback Darrel Young in the Redskins' preseason-opening victory last Thursday.
The left tackle that practiced with the Washington Redskins' first-string offense on Saturday afternoon was planning for his retirement two weeks ago. The left guard was a rookie. So was the right guard. And he practiced next to a right tackle who played with the second string all offseason.
Five questions to keep in mind when Washington visits Buffalo in the preseason opener.
Josh LeRibeus likes to laugh. Every few seconds the convulsions shake his emerging beard, thriving since his girlfriend isn't in town, that draws comparisons to John Belushi.
Already dealing with an uncertain situation at right tackle with Jammal Brown, the Washington Redskins became thinner along the offensive line, at least in the short term, after left guard Kory Lichtensteiger had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday.
Trent Williams and Maurice Hurt were the last two Washington Redskins off the indoor practice field Saturday afternoon. While most of their teammates headed to lunch, and a few stragglers spoke to reporters, Williams tutored Hurt about squaring his shoulders to pass-rushing defenders and absorbing contact in the chest.
Asked if he thought during his time with the Gators that Tebow would be a good NFL quarterback, Hurt said: "I can't. You're asking me questions I can't be answering. No comment."
"It was amazing, man," said Hurt, a seventh-round pick elevated from the practice squad after Kory Lichtensteiger's season-ending knee injury. "Obviously, I wished there was a better outcome. But it was a great feeling."
