Tyler Polumbus did not practice on Wednesday because of the concussion he sustained 11 days ago in Cleveland, Coach Mike Shanahan said. 

“He’s checked every day, and he was checked today and doctors didn’t feel like he should practice,” Shanahan said of his starting right tackle. “He’ll go through the process tomorrow and I can tell you more then.”

Linebacker London Fletcher and reserve wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe also did not practice. Fletcher has been hampered since last month because an ankle injury but has not missed a game. Briscoe missed his return flight to Washington and will be fined accordingly, Shanahan said.

Safety DeJon Gomes, meantime, was limited in his participation because of a Grade 2 MCL sprain he suffered against the Eagles.

“I couldn’t tell you right now,” Shanahan said about Gomes’ availability Sunday against the Cowboys. “The good sign is he was on the football field to day in a limited role, and that’s a positive.”

Others receiving treatment were: special teams captain Lorenzo Alexander (shoulder), defensive end Stephen Bowen (biceps), wide receivers Pierre Garçon (foot) and Josh Morgan (hand), quarterback Robert Griffin III (knee), center Will Montgomery (knee), linebacker Ryan Kerrigan (ankle), tackle Trent Williams (thigh) and cornerback Josh Wilson (shoulder).
