Redskins sign veteran C John Sullivan

The banged up interior of the Washington Redskins offensive line got some reinforcements today, as the Redskins signed veteran Center John Sullivan.  Center quickly became a need during the Redskins 29-27 win over the Giants.  Kory Litchensteiger, who was already bothered by back issues, injured his calf and was forced from the game.

Although Litchensteiger’s calf injury is said to be a ‘moderate’ injury, the Redskins have placed Litchensteiger on the Injured Reserve.  Sullivan spent eight seasons with Minnesota and was released this off-season after attempts to initiate a trade failed.  He started for Minnesota from 2009 to 2014 and only missed three games during that period.  Sullivan will provide solid veteran presence in a damaged interior offensive line.   In fact, many Redskins fans were hopeful that the Redskins would have attempted to acquire Sullivan during the off-season.  Given the lackluster play on the interior, Sullivan actually could look like an upgrade.

G Spencer Long took over for Litch during Sunday’s game.  However, starting LG Shaun Lauvao was also injured during the game on Sunday.  An MRI on Lauvao did not reveal a significant injury.
