Redskins LG Lichtensteiger active for playoff game

Washington Redskins left guard Kory Lichtensteiger is active for

their playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks despite missing

practice the entire week because of a sprained left ankle.

Lichtensteiger was hurt in the third quarter of the previous

week’s NFC East-clinching win over the Dallas Cowboys.

With Lichtensteiger active Sunday, the Redskins were expected to

start the same five offensive linemen for the 16th time in 17 games

this season.

Nickel cornerback Cedric Griffin was also active for Washington

in his first game since a four-game drug suspension. Safety DeJon

Gomes was active despite being limited in practice with a sprained

left knee.

The Seahawks have been healthy and had no surprises on their

inactive list. Cornerback Brandon Browner was active as he returned

from a four-game drug suspension.
