Lauvao (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

The Redskins will be a bit thin at offensive guard Sunday with Spencer Long (concussion/shoulder) out as well, so Arie Kouandjio figures to be in line for an increased workload.

Lauvao (ankle) passed his physical on Monday and is no longer on the PUP list.

EDGE Analysis

Lauvao took the field for the first time since last September, before he went through five different ankle and foot procedures. The left guard only missed three training camp practices before returning to the field on Monday. Lauvao commented on his situation after practice, "It felt good, man. The biggest thing was just getting your legs under yourself...Honestly I feel good."

Lauvao has been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list due to an ankle injury, Stephen Whyno of the Capital Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lauvao injured his ankle last September and missed the final 13 games of the season. He had five surgeries on the ankle during the offseason and isn't quite ready to return to practice, though it is expected that he'll return soon. When he does return he'll look to earn a spot on the starting offensive line.

The Redskins plan to use Shawn Lauvao at left guard.

For now, at least, undersized Chris Chester is staying at right guard, with Kory Lichtensteiger penciled in lightly at center. Lauvao was a right guard in Cleveland, but struggled there and the Skins apparently believe he'll be better off playing next to LT Trent Williams. Lauvao's contract was among free agency's biggest head scratchers, receiving $17 million over four years.

Redskins sign G Shawn Lauvao for four years, $17 million.

Lauvao missed the beginning of last season with an ankle injury, but was an every down player for the Browns beginning Week 5. He struggled as a run blocker in 2013, but has been a solid blocker in his career and should add beef to a smallish Washington offensive line.

ESPN Cleveland does not expect free agent G Shawn Lauvao back with the Browns.

Lauvao missed the start of last season due to an ankle injury. He was an every-down player from Week 5 on, but struggled badly as a run blocker and gave up 18 quarterback hurries along with four sacks. New offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan prefers smaller, more agile linemen to execute his zone-blocking scheme. Lauvao is our No. 10 free agent guard available.
