Lineup/ Injury Issues: The weekly listing of left tackle Trent Williams with a thigh injury continues, but he hasn't missed game time lately. Center Will Montgomery is also listed with a knee injury, but should be fine for Sunday night's big game. Right tackle Tyler Polumbus missed Week 16 recovering from a concussion, and he has yet to practice. His status is in doubt.
Starting right tackle Jammal Brown was placed I.R. (11/28) with a hip injury.
Backups: Tyler Polumbus (concussion), Adam Gettis, Jordan Black, Josh LeRibeus
Fantasy Impact: The Redskins' offensive line was another unit that was ravaged by injuries in 2011, and was forced to mix and match guys on a weekly basis. The return of Williams at left tackle has really righted the ship, as has the arrival of the shifty Robert Griffin III. Right tackle is still somewhat of an issue, but overall, this is the best unit that's been knocking heads in the nation's capital for some time.
Change from Last Rank: None
Reason for the Move: The Redskins held their spot at no.2 this week, as they continue to push teams around in the trenches, and lead the NFL in rushing. Their pass protection isn't quite elite, but they do well enough to hold this lofty standing.
