NFL Injury Report:
The Washington Redskins lost a pair of offensive linemen
during yesterday’s rout over the Cleveland Browns, right tackle Tyler Polumbus
and center Will Montgomery, reports Mark Maske of the Washington Post.
But they ended Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns minus
two starters on the offensive line. Right tackle Tyler Polumbus suffered a
concussion and center Will Montgomery suffered a knee injury.
Montgomery suffered his knee injury, a sprained MCL, when
fellow offensive lineman Trent Williams was blocked into his left leg. While
the severity of the injury remains unknown, Montgomery said he’s hoping not to
miss any games as a result. He is set to undergo an MRI to determine the extent
of the knee injury.
Polumbus suffered a concussion and will now have to be
cleared by an independent neurologist before practicing or playing.
The Redskins have had the same five starting offensive
lineman in every game this season, which has contributed to the team’s success.
It will be determined later in the week if they’ll be able to keep that
impressive streak alive.
