LANDOVER, Md. (CBSDC) — For the first time this season the Washington Redskins will have all three quarterbacks on their roster activate for a game.
Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins will be joined by Rex Grossman, a 13-game starter last season who has only been active one previous time this year, as they take on the Dallas Cowboys with the NFC East title and a trip to the playoffs on the line. Grossman served as backup to Cousins with Griffin out with an ailing knee against the Cleveland Browns, but did not see any action.
Tyler Polumbus (concussion) is expected to start at right tackle.
Safety DeJon Gomes is inactive with a MCL sprain in his left knee.
Brandon Banks is also among Washington’s inactive players, perhaps signaling his time on Mike Shanahan’s roster has come to a close.
Also inactive for the Redskins: PR/KR Brandon Banks, OL Adam Gettis, OL Tom Compton, LB Vic So’oto and LB Roddrick Muckelroy.
Dallas Cowboys inactives: RB Phillip Tanner, OL Kevin Kowalski, OL David Arkin, OL Ronald Leary, DT Robert Callaway, OL Darrion Weems and DT Jay Ratliff.
Sean Lissemore is expected to start in place of Jay Ratliff while Eric Frampton is expected to spell Danny McCray.
