Jason La Canfora reports that Redskins center Spencer Long had a minor knee scope and is expected to return in two weeks. Long will miss the final two preseason games, and should be ready to play week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Redskins will turn to their 6th round rookie Chase Roullier to start in his place on Sunday when they host the Cincinnati Bengals. The Redskins traded up for Roullier in the draft and Head Coach Jay Gruden has already indicated he's set to make the roster this year.
Spencer Long update: I'm told knee scope was to repair cartilage. Can confirm the approximate 2 week timeline reported by @JasonLaCanfora.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) August 22, 2017
