Offensive linemen Will Montgomery and Tyler Polumbus joined their teammates on the practice field Wednesday, three days after both were injured in the Redskins’ victory in Cleveland.

Montgomery, who suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee in the fourth quarter, said he was not hindered by the injury. He added that there is “no doubt” in his mind that he’ll play Sunday in Philadelphia. A source indicated on Tuesday that others have played through the same injury Montgomery is coping with.

“I feel good,” Montgomery said. “I practiced the whole practice and feel great.”

Polumbus, who left early in the third quarter with a concussion, was less certain about his status.  

“I did what I could,” he said. “It was a good day. I’m feeling good. I would certainly classify this as a minor deal. I’m definitely planning on playing.”

Special teams captain Lorenzo Alexander wore a gold no-contact jersey for practice. He suffered a “stinger” in his right shoulder in the first half but later returned to the game.

Alexander also said he expects to suit up against the Eagles.

Coach Mike Shanahan is expected to provide updates on the injured players later this afternoon.
