Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan believes G Kory Lichtensteiger will return to the line-up by training camp set to open July 26. Lichtensteiger tore both his ACL and MCL in the Week 6 home game against Philadelphia. LT Trent Williams went down in the same game. Say what you want about a "quarterback-driven league," but offensive line is still the deal. The Redskins entered the Eagles game 3-1. They lost that game without Williams and Lichtensteiger, and then lost nine of the next 11 while suffering a rash of injuries on the O-line and the rest of the team. It's football. Injuries happen. The Redskins got better with Roy Helu and Evan Royster after Tim Hightower's injury. Fred Davis was more than adequate replacing Chris Cooley. Jabar Gaffney was a steady influence, but the team could not overcome Santana Moss' injuries and the loss of Leonard Hankerson. No part of the offense was more devastated than the offensive line that took its biggest his with Trent Williams
