Redskins vs Falcons Injury Update: Shawn Lauvao leaves game with knee injury

Another injury for Lauvao and the left side of the Redskins offensive line

NFL: Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Shawn Lauvao did not have a good start to today’s Redskins vs Falcons game. On the second play of the game, he had a questionable holding call wipe out a Jordan Reed first down catch. On the next play Falcons DT Grady Jarrett bull rushed him, and got the sack on Alex Smith. Lauvao went down clutching his knee, and was helped off the field. Lauvao has been dealing with a calf injury that has caused him to miss time, but he has played the last two games.

The Redskins are already missing LT Trent Williams on the offensive line after he had thumb surgery this week. Tony Bergstrom finished the drive out at left guard. When Lauvao missed time earlier this year Chase Roullier moved to LG with Bergstrom playing center.
