Washington Redskins reshuffle offensive line after injuries

Just when the Washington Redskins believe they have finally solved their longstanding quarterback woes with rookie Robert Griffin III, those assigned to protect the Heisman Trophy winner are disappearing.

Right tackle Jammal Brown went on the physically unable to perform list after re-injuring his chronically ailing left hip while running sprints the day before training camp opened on July 26. While Brown won't need a repeat of surgery thLeft guard Kory Lichtensteiger, who missed the final 11 games of last year after tearing his left anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments, began camp with the starters and without a knee brace. However, Lichtensteiger had surgery on Monday to remove loose particles in the knee and is likely out until the Sept. 9 regular season opener at New Orleans.

Maurice Hurt, a seventh-round choice in the 2011 draft who began his rookie year on the practice squad, is replacing Lichtensteiger as he did for eight games last season. Tyler Polumbus, who was cut by Denver in 2010 and by Seattle last October before signing with the Redskins on Nov. 9, is filling in for Brown as he did for three of the final four games of 2011.

"I'm glad that they feel I was capable enough to move me back over to guard," said the 6-foot-3, 329-pound Hurt, who began camp as a backup right tackle. "I was just excited for the opportunity. I'm definitely much better this year even though I was playing tackle during OTAs and minicamp because we had the whole offseason.

"My knowledge of the offense has grown. I know what the tackle is supposed to do on every play and what the guard is supposed to do. I can understand different blocks, where before I was just trying to focus in on my position."at sidelined him for all of 2009, there's no timetable for his return.
