Two Redskins — James Thrash and Renaldo Wynn — needed surgery after Washington’s victory at Tampa Bay on Saturday. The Redskins are hopeful the receiver will be available for the divisional playoff game at Seattle on Saturday, while the defensive end will not be.

Thrash will have a small plate and two tiny screws inserted into his thumb, which then will be placed in a splint. Redskins director of sports medicine Bubba Tyer hopes Thrash can practice later this week and play against the NFC West champion Seahawks.

Wynn had two plates placed in his broken right forearm at Reston Hospital yesterday. Wynn will be placed on injured reserve this week and will be in a brace for eight weeks. Wynn is expected to make a full recovery before minicamp this spring.

Cornerback Shawn Springs, who didn’t play against Tampa Bay because of an injured groin that had been bothering him since Dec. 11 at Arizona, vowed to be in the lineup in Seattle.

“I’ll be ready,” Springs said. “This is the healthiest I’ve been in four weeks. I probably could’ve gone this game. My [specialist] from Atlanta came up, fixed me up, and I had a breakthrough on Thursday.”

Cornerback Carlos Rogers, who played for the first time in four weeks, said his ailing biceps held up fine.
