Redskins: Injury Update

CSN Washington reported yesterday that the Washington Redskins will be without right tackle Jamal Brown and fullback/tight end Mike Sellers. The team is also without safety LaRon Landry (Achilles), left tackle Trent Williams (suspension), and tight end Fred Davis (suspension) for the rest of the season.

For a third straight day, Sellers and Brown did not practice with the team yesterday. With that in mind, Head Coach Mike Shanahan decided that they would not be active for this weekends game against the Giants.

In warm ups against the Patriots, Jamal Brown re-injured his groin. Sellers hyper extended his right elbow while covering a kickoff in the first half.

Filling the void at right tackle for a second straight week will be Tyler Polumbus. Against the Patriots, Polumbus did a solid job at holding his blocks and giving Rex Grossman time to throw the football. He also did a good job at opening up running lanes for Roy Helu Jr.

Filling in at the tight end spot will be Dominique Byrd. Logan Paulsen is slated as the starting tight end and Byrd will see time when the Redskins go to a two tight end formation. The Redskins also have Richard Quinn that could see action Sunday.

The Redskins do expect Stephen Bowen (knee), safety Reed Doughty (rib), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), punter Sav Rocca (ankle), and reciever Donte Stallworth (ankle) to play this Sunday against the Giants.
