Redskins put C Kory Lichtensteiger on IR, sign John Sullivan
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins have put center Kory Lichtensteiger on injured reserve with an injured calf and signed free agent center John Sullivan.
As part of a flurry of moves Tuesday, the Redskins moved offensive lineman Vinston Painter from their practice squad to their active roster, signed cornerback Tye Smith to their practice squad and released linebacker Amarlo Herrera from their practice squad.
Lichtensteiger was one of several Redskins hurt during Sunday's 29-27 victory over the New York Giants. Another was safety DeAngelo Hall, who went on IR with a torn ligament in his right knee.
Left guard Shawn Lauvao left Sunday's game with a sprained ankle.
So it was important to add some depth along the offensive line. The 31-year-old Sullivan missed all of last season with a back injury, then was cut by the Minnesota Vikings at the end of August.
