Redskins right tackle Morgan Moses will have ankle surgery Thursday, ESPN reported. 

A source told the Washington Times that noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson will preform the surgery. Moses will travel Wednesday to Charlotte, where Anderson is located. 

Moses, who played all 16 games this season, had been dealing with sore ankles throughout the year. Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins said Friday that Moses’ soreness was actually torn ligaments.

Moses, according to ESPN’s John Keim, will only have surgery on one ankle, even though he dealt with pain in both during the season. 

“I’ve been dealing with these things since Week 2, so it’s been a long road,” Moses said last week. “I’ve had surgeries in the past, and it’s just about being consistent coming in and rehabbing and taking care of your body.” 

Moses was one of the many Redskins offensive linemen who dealt with injuries in 2017. All five opening-day starters were banged up, at some point, with starters Trent Williams, Shawn Lauvao and Spencer Long winding up on injured reserve. 

Williams also had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his knee on Dec. 29.
