The Washington Redskins will be without three attacking attackers when the team goes to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
Left tackle Trent Williams (thumb surgery) was officially ruled out on Friday and guards Brandon Scherff (shoulder) and Shawn Lauvao (ankle) were both placed on the wounded reserve this week. Proper tackle Morgan Moses (knee) was limited in practice Thursday and Friday. He is listed as iffy.
Washington Coach Jay Gruden did not have a complete plan for a starting line after drawing three new attacking lines this week.
Ty Nsekhe and Moses will be the tackles, if Moses is healthy. Rookie Geron Christian will intervene if Moses can not go. Chase Roullier is scheduled to stay central and Tony Bergstrom will be the right guard. Jonathan Cooper seems to have the inside to start with the left guard.
"We hope that the experience that Jonathan has will help, and Bergstom has played a lot," said Gruden. "Of course, Chase, and hopefully we get it [Morgan] back. So that is still pretty solid, if you ask me. When you are on the field, you get a better idea of how things are going. How we protect. How we are blocked. How they handle the heat and the disks and the communication. Time will tell. I am curious to see it. "
The team will also run without Chris Thompson (ribs), who has already missed three games. Cornerback Quinton Dunbar (tibia) and wide receiver Jamison Crowder (ankle) were mentioned as questionable.
Dunbar played two games before returning to the Atlanta Falcons, but again aggravated a nerve problem in his leg. He has not practiced the whole week. Crowder missed the last four games, but returned to practice on a limited basis on Thursday.
Sunday's game is also the first since wide receiver Paul Richardson injured with a shoulder injury. Maurice Harris is next in the rotation, with Michael Floyd and Brian Quick ready for extra snaps if Crowder misses another game.
The Buccaneers will be without a defensive end Vinny Curry (ankle), back-bound Ronald Jones II (hamstring), cornerback M.J. Stewart (foot) and offensive lineman Evan Smith (hip / wrist).
