Over the next two weeks, CSNWashington.com Redskins reporters Tarik El-Bashir and Rich Tandler will grade each position group’s performance in 2012 and evaluate its outlook for 2013. Yesterday, we looked at offensive tackles. Today, it’s the interior offensive line.
2012 starters: LG Kory Lichtensteiger, C Will Montgomery, RG Chris Chester
Key reserves: Josh LeRibeus, Adam Gettis, Maurice Hurt
Key free agents: Lichtensteiger
What was supposed to be a weak area for the Redskins turned out to be quite good. Lichtensteiger, Montgomery, and Chester were the core of the line for the team that led the NFL in rushing. Montgomery in particular was solid in run blocking and he allowed just one sack all year.
