Kory Lichtensteiger good to go for Redskins


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.

  1. I’m just waiting to see who comes of the AFC to get crushed to the NFC Conference Champion Washington Redskins. All these games are just a formality as far as I’m concerned.

  2. Seattle’s a fantastic team. All the experts picked Dallas on Thanksgiving, then the Giants, then Baltimore, then Cleveland, and Dallas again last week…. Redskins keep on winning…. Hail!!

    you are so head over heels in love with your desalination that you are blinded to reality. Yes, the skins are making strides and heading in the right direction but they are the 5th best NFC team in the playoffs tops. Their season ends today. Seattle is going to run through the playoffs unscathed. Better luck next year logicalvoice. I like the skins too but you gotta be reasonable. You make all Redskin fans look snobby and whiny. Although I’m sure none of them are near as bad as you. I feel for Redskin fans who actually are logical

  4. “the Seahawks are going to crush the skins today. Better rookie QB, better running back, better defense = easy win”


    I’ll give you a better defense and a more “explosive” running back. But better rookie QB? I get you’re trolling here, but c’mon? I’ll give you “healthier” rookie QB. RGIII better Total QBR, better QB Rating, more yards, more rushing yards, more rushing TDs and less interceptions? Russell Wilson had more TDs and he had an extra game to do so.

    He is a great QB and he may very well win this game, but I don’t think he is clearly better than RGIII.

  5. Hey Seahawks,

    14-0!!! We don’t know who is going to win but the Skins are making that Def. look average!!! Your only hope is a serious injury to RG3!!!

  6. No horse in this race, but Irvin should have been ejected for such a blatant late hit on RGIII.
