At his media conference on Monday afternoon, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan spoke about two offensive line injuries from Sunday's game. Shanahan said that Will Montgomery has an MCL spain and that Tyler Polumbus suffered a concussion in Sunday's 38-21 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

While Shanahan spoke about Montgomery's injury he did not reveal how severe the knee injury was and said that there would be an update on Wednesday about the center's status. Montgomery is a six-year NFL veteran from Virginia Tech.
