Tyler Polumbus Active For Cowboys; DeJon Gomes Inactive With Knee Injury
LANDOVER, Md. – Tyler Polumbus is active for the Washington Redskins on Sunday and is on pace to play against Dallas in the season finale.
Polumbus, who left the Redskins’ game at Cleveland on Dec. 16 with a concussion, was not medically cleared to play a week ago at Philadelphia and was replaced by Maurice Hurt. He returned to practice in a limited role on Thursday and was fully cleared on Friday, though he split repetitions that day, according to head coach Mike Shanahan, so both players could prepare.
DeJon Gomes is inactive with a partially torn MCL in his left knee sustained against the Eagles. Gomes, who has rotated in at strong safety this season, will have his spot filled by Reed Doughty, the likely starter, and Jordan Pugh.
Rex Grossman has been listed as active, which would give the Redskins three active quarterbacks for the first time this season. Grossman, the starter for much of last year, was only active against Cleveland when Robert Griffin III was out with a knee injury. Whether Grossman being active is a sign of Griffin’s health is uncertain; Kirk Cousins has served as the backup quarterback all season.
Also inactive for the Redskins are offensive linemen Adam Gettis and Tom Compton, receivers Brandon Banks and Dezmon Briscoe and linebackers Roddrick Muckelroy and Vic So’oto.
Gettis, a fifth-round draft pick, was on the active roster all season but was never active.
