Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Washington Redskins offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus sustained a concussion in the third quarter of the team's game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. He will not return to the game.

Polumbus was on the field for the Redskins' opening drive in the second half, but left the game prior to the Alfred Morris touchdown run which capped off the series.

Polumbus, a six-year pro out of Colorado, is in his first season as a full-time starter in the NFL. Prior to this season, Polumbus started just 19 games in five seasons. Before arriving in Washington, D.C., Polumbus spent four years with the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.

The 32-year-old veteran Jordan Black replaced Polumbus after the injury. Black, in his seventh year out of Notre Dame, is in his first season with the Redskins. Prior to this year, Black started 40 games with the Kansas City Chiefs, Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars.
