Redskins placed OT Morgan Moses on injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury, ending his season.
Moses, the 66th pick in May's draft, played 131 snaps as a rookie, making one start at left tackle in Week 12. He gave up two sacks that day. Moses may have a future at right tackle, but was unable to unseat Tyler Polumbus on the right side in year one. Lisfranc injuries have proven to be tricky in the past. Thu, Dec 11, 2014 12:28:00 PM

Redskins third-round OT Morgan Moses sprained his MCL in the team's third preseason game Saturday night.

Moses, the 66th overall pick in May, struggled out of the gates, but has played well this preseason. He's seen work at both left and right tackle and projects to fill the Redskins' swing-tackle role. Moses will miss a couple weeks.

The Washington Post leaves the door open for the Redskins to possibly cut third-round OT Morgan Moses.

Beat writer Mike Jones does write that it would be "hard to see them giving up on a third-round pick this quickly." But Moses is having trouble adjusting to the speed and strength of NFL pass rushers. Tom Compton has outplayed Moses as the No. 3 tackle behind starters LT Trent Williams and RT Tyler Polumbus. Moses' name was brought up as a potential first- or second-rounder before going 66th overall to Washington. He may be a weekly scratch in year one.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim said rookie OT Morgan Moses has struggled early in training camp.

Keim cautioned "it will take Moses time" to develop into a starting tackle. Many thought Moses would push incumbent RT Tyler Polumbus for the starting job this year, but it has become clear he has a lot of developing to do. He will likely spend his rookie season as a reserve, but Moses could push for snaps in 2015.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden conceded third-round OT Morgan Moses is a ways away from pushing incumbent RT Tyler Polumbus for a starting job.

"He’s got a ways to go," Gruden admitted. "He’s moving over to right tackle and we’re introducing him to the outside zone the way we want it, the protections the way we want it and it’s going to take some time." Polumbus was better than given credit for last season, and Moses enters the pros as a total project in terms of run blocking. He's more likely to push for snaps in 2015.

Redskins signed third-round OT Morgan Moses to a four-year contract.

Redskins fans want Moses to replace Tyler Polumbus at right tackle immediately, but that's not the way it's going to go. Beat writer John Keim says there's a "big difference" between the two right now, citing Moses' need to clean up technique. The 6'6/314 monster with 35-inch arms projects as a starter in Year 2. The Redskins have now signed all eight of their draft picks.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim "would be surprised" if third-round OT Morgan Moses was an immediate starter.

Considered a second-round prospect, Moses fell to the third due to concerns over his work ethic. He's more of a project than plug-and-play right tackle and is a liability in run blocking. Moses only has to beat out Tyler Polumbus for the starting job, so he's facing little in the way of competition. Polumbus allowed four sacks and 28 quarterback hurries in 2013.

Redskins GM Bruce Allen confirms third-round OT Morgan Moses will be in the mix at right tackle.

Tyler Polumbus' job is not safe following a rough 2013. Moses has starter measurables (6-foot-6 1/8, 314 pounds, 35 3/8-inch arms), but lacks fluidity and is an atrocious run blocker. Moses could need more than four months to adjust to the level of athleticism NFL pass rushers will throw his way.

Redskins selected Virginia OT Morgan Moses with the No. 66 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Moses (6-foot-6 1/8, 314) made 43 starts for the Cavaliers, 12 at left tackle, 30 at right tackle, and one at right guard. He was UVA's left tackle as a senior, yielding only two sacks. Moses measured in with vine-like 35 3/8-inch arms at the Combine, running 5.35 with a 21 1/2-inch vertical. Despite athletic limitations, Moses has a chance to stay on the blindside in the pros because of his length. He projects as likely NFL starter, albeit with some bust risk. There's a concerning amount of stiffness to Moses' game, he's a disinterested run blocker, and he has a reputation for laziness. The Redskins will ask Moses to play right away, likely at right tackle.

WGR 550 Buffalo believes the Bills could be "holding out hope" for Virginia OT Morgan Moses or Nevada OL Joel Bitonio at No. 41 overall.

After addressing their receiver need in the first round, the Bills want to upgrade on Erik Pears at right tackle. Moses profiles as a pure tackle in the pros, though he did start one game at guard in college, while Bitonio is capable of suiting up at all five positions along the line. If the Bills don't go offensive line at 41, there's some thought they could target a pass-catching tight end.

A league source tells the Charlotte Observer the Panthers are not interested in Virginia OT Morgan Moses.

Moses became a popular mock pick for Carolina late in the pre-draft process, but the team isn't high on him. We like Nevada OL Joel Bitonio's chances better of being the Panthers' selection at No. 28 overall, though they could also seriously consider wide receivers. But O-Line is Carolina's most glaring need.
