LANDOVER, Md. (AP)

Washington Redskins left guard Kory Lichtensteiger is active for their playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks despite missing practice the entire week because of a sprained left ankle.

Lichtensteiger was hurt in the third quarter of the previous week's NFC East-clinching win over the Dallas Cowboys.

With Lichtensteiger active Sunday, the Redskins were expected to start the same five offensive linemen for the 16th time in 17 games this season.

Nickel cornerback Cedric Griffin was also active for Washington in his first game since a four-game drug suspension. Safety DeJon Gomes was active despite being limited in practice with a sprained left knee.

The Seahawks have been healthy and had no surprises on their inactive list. Cornerback Brandon Browner was active as he returned from a four-game drug suspension.
