Left guard Kory Lichtensteiger [ankle] did not practice again today and will be a game time decision for the Redskins on Sunday at FedEx Field when they face off against the visiting Seattle Seahawks in the first round of the playoffs. Lichtensteiger was injured in the week 17 win over the Dallas Cowboys and was replaced by backup rookie Josh LiRibeus last Sunday. If Lichtensteiger cannot play against Seattle, LiRibeus would again take his place, this time in the starting lineup.
