The Redskins are going to be short on defensive linemen when they open camp tomorrow.

According to ESPN 980 (via CSNWashington.com), defensive ends Jason Hatcher and Stephen Bowen will be placed on the physically unable to perform list to open camp.

Hatcher had an arthroscopic procedure after minicamp, and is in the middle of the four- to six-week recovery time.

Bowen, however, is coming off microfracture surgery, which makes his return harder to figure.

Hatcher signed a deal with $10.5 million guaranteed to come over from Dallas this offseason.

That will stretch a defensive line that was already old, with most of its key contributors over 30.
