Redskins Injury Update: Chase Roullier recovering from offseason shoulder surgery

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

Chase Roullier was the Redskins ironman on offense last season. He was the only player in on every offensive snap, and was rewarded for it with an extra $481k.

The Redskins offensive line was devastated by injury again last year. Both starting guards were lost for the year when Shawn Lauvao(ACL) and Brandon Scherff(pec) went down. Both starting tackles were limited by injuries. And when backups started dropping, guys were getting signed off the street to play.

Roullier told the Washington Times that he had shoulder surgery to deal with an injury that has bothered him the last few years.

“I just got it done this offseason to make sure it doesn’t hinder me in the future,” Roullier said.

At OTAs, Roullier has been working off to the side in the team’s rehab area. This offseason, Washington has used a variety of different offensive linemen with the first-team as many of last year’s starters work their way back from injuries.

Roullier is working to be ready for the start of Redskins training camp on July 25th. The Redskins have brought in multiple offensive linemen this offseason. They re-signed Tony Bergstrom, who has experience starting at center with the team. They also drafted Wes Martin and Ross Pierschbacher.

The Redskins top 2 healthy QBs have never played a snap for the team. Dwayne Haskins was drafted in the 1st round this year and is the future of the team. Washington traded for Case Keenum, a veteran who could start the season until Haskins is ready. Having a healthy Roullier, along with the rest of the OL starters, will be huge for both QBs.
