The Redskins signed veteran offensive lineman Tony Moll on Saturday to bolster an offensive line that’s been besieged by injuries a week into training camp.
Mike Shanahan said after practice that Moll will work at guard
Moll, a 6 foot 5, 315-pounder who has also played tackle, has made 22 starts in a six season NFL career that’s made stops in Green Bay, Baltimore and San Diego.
Moll appeared in three games for the Chargers last season, including one start.
The Redskins had an opening on the 90-man training camp roster after placing Kentwan Balmer on the left training camp/reserve list.
The team needed to bolster its offensive line depth after losing Kory Lichtensteiger and Jammal Brown to injury.
Moll was on the field in uniform today but he could not fully participate in practice due to CBA rules.
Lichtensteiger will be sidelined for the remainder of training camp after undergoing a second surgical procedure on his right knee.
Brown is out indefinitely while rehabbing an ailing left hip that landed him on the physically unable to perform list before camp opened.
Moll, who will wear No. 54, is the second lineman the Redskins have signed this week. The team added free agent Jordan Black on Monday.
