The Washington Redskins’ battered offensive line is dealing with more injuries, as left guard Maurice Hurt sat out Wednesday’s practice with a knee injury while right tackle Sean Locklear was limited because of a sprained ankle.

After Lichtensteiger suffered a season-ending knee injury in the fifth game of the season, Will Montgomery slid over from center to left guard for two games while Erik Cook stepped in at center.

It happened again Wednesday at Redskins Park. One quarterback talked about winning the starting job. The other talked about losing it.
This time it was Rex Grossman getting the special treatment, holding a news conference upstairs in the old Washington Redskins media room.
At the same time, John Beck was downstairs standing in front of his locker, dealing with another demotion...
It was only 10 short weeks ago that the Redskins were criticized for having too many receivers in training camp. But by the middle of November, injuries and lack of production had taken their toll, causing the Redskins to bring back recently released Donte Stallworth.
His time away from the team amounted to a personal bye week of sorts, in which he was able to get away...
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said safety LaRon Landry (Achilles), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), receiver Niles Paul (toe) and guard Maurice Hurt (knee) all did not practice on Wednesday.
Safety Oshiomogho Atogwe (knee, toe) practiced fully, as did running back Tashard Choice (hamstring). Tackle Jammal Brown (groin), and tackle Sean Locklear (knee, ankle) were limited.
Redskins safety LaRon Landry (Achilles) and three offensive linemen are questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys, Coach Mike Shanahan said.
Jammal Brown, Sean Locklear and Maurice Hurt are all dealing with injuries and if they can’t play, the Redskins face some big questions along the offensive line. If Brown and Locklear are unavailable, rookie Willie Smith would be...

The Washington Redskins have not played so well in recent weeks, and it is possible the team could go 3-13.
It doesn’t have the usual buzz to it, but this is indeed Dallas Week, and Sunday’s matchup features two teams apparently going in opposite directions.
The Redskins have lost five straight, while the Cowboys have won three of their last four.
Here’s how these teams compare:

It’s mid-November. For the 10th time in 12 years under owner Dan Snyder, the Redskins are going to watch the playoffs from home. (This will mark the fourth straight season.) That means it’s time for a fresh wave of criticism for how Snyder and his staff run the team. Former Redskins cornerback Carlos Rogers, now…
Sunday’s game could mark the debut of RB Tashard Choice in Redskins’ burgundy and gold. Washington claimed Choice off waivers Oct. 31 after he was cut by the Cowboys, but a lingering hamstring injury has prevented him from playing until now.
“He’s definitely going to be ready,” said Redskins defensive end Stephen Bowen, another former Cowboy, in a conference call Wednesday...

You hear it again and again on DC sports talk radio: The fanbase has little faith that Shanahan actually knows what...
