Makeshift line has ex­pe­ri­ence

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

Look, the Red­skins would pre­fer to have their start­ing of­fen­sive line from Week 1.

And it’s true they’ll be with­out at least three (Lau­vao,

Scherff and Trent Wil­liams) of those five play­ers on

Sun­day — and pos­si­bly a fourth if Morgan Moses (sprained MCL) can’t go. But the

Red­skins signed three ex­pe­ri­enced line­men in Luke Bowanko,


Cooper and

Austin Howard.

Cooper, who will most likely start at left guard, is the for­mer sev­enth over­all pick from 2013 and has started 27 of his 42 games. Howard, the team’s likely right tackle if Moses is out, has started 88 games. Bowanko has been with three other teams.
