The Redskins had a couple of game-time decisions to make before handing in their 46-man roster for Sunday’s playoff game and both of them wound up with the players declared ready to go.
Left guard Kory Lichtensteiger missed practice all this week with an ankle injury he picked up in the Week 17 win over the Cowboys, raising concerns that the team would have to go with rookie Josh LeRibeus in the starting lineup. Lichtensteiger checked out okay in pregame warmups, though, and will start for the Redskins. Safety DeJon Gomes was also questionable after being limited by a knee injury all week, but he also got the green light.
Quarterback Rex Grossman, wide receiver Brandon Banks, wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe, linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy, linebacker Vic So’oto, tackle Tom Compton and guard Adam Gettis are inactive for the Redskins.
Seahawks guard John Moffitt is active for the first time in three weeks, but J.R. Sweezy is still starting at right guard. The inactives for Seattle are wide receiver Deon Butler, safety Winston Guy, cornerback DeShawn Shead, linebacker Allen Bradford, guard Rishaw Johnson, tackle Mike Person and defensive tackle Jaye Howard.
