Looking at other Redskins position questions

ASHBURN, Va. -- Quarterback isn't the only position that's somewhat in limbo for the Washington Redskins. In all honesty, quarterback really isn't a question, as it's quite simple: Colt McCoy will start, barring some major (and unforeseen) turnaround from Robert Griffin III.

But other positions have some questions:

Inside linebacker: Perry Riley was a full participant in practice Thursday, but he’s still not quite fully recovered from his sprained MCL. Gruden said Riley and Will Compton could alternate Monday night. Compton did a solid job the past two weeks filling in for Riley. But, Gruden said, “When Perry does come back at 100 percent, it’s his job.”

Right tackle: Gruden still isn’t sure who will start from among Tyler Polumbus, Tom Compton or even Morgan Moses. Gruden said it’s a close decision and said part of Polumbus’ problems this season stem from soreness in his knee. He also said Compton deserved a chance last week, which is why they alternated him with Polumbus. A rotation remains an option Monday.

Left guard: There really wasn’t any decision to make because it’s not as if Gruden had said anything about a change. But it’s also not as if Shawn Lauvao has been solid all season. So Gruden was asked if Josh LeRibeus would be getting more reps. “We’re not anticipating moving Shawn out of the spot at left guard,” Gruden said. “We feel good about him. We feel good about Trent [Williams]. Kory [Lichtensteiger] is doing a good job, Chris Chester’s doing a good job.”
