Lauvao (ankle) played 10 snaps during Thursday's preseason game against the Bronco.
Lauvao was battling a minor ankle issue earlier in camp, but his presence on the field during Thursday's preseason contest suggests he has gotten over it. The veteran interior lineman is slated to start at left guard for Washington again in 2018.
Lauvao (ankle) took part in individual work at practice Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Lauvao, who has never played a full 16-game season in his career, seems to be progressing in his recovery and on track for Week 1. Given the 30-year-old's durability concerns, what appears to be a minor ankle injury remains worth monitoring until he is fully cleared.
Lauvao has missed 23 games over his four years with the Redskins, never once playing in all 16 games. He finished 2017 on injured reserve with a neck stinger that sidelined him for the latter half of the year. When healthy he's a candidate to start for the club, and he'll look to do so again in 2018.
Lauvao has been limited the last few weeks due to a stinger injury, which forced him to miss the Redskins' Week 9 game against the Seahawks. With Lauvao's condition failing to show much improvement, the Redskins opted to shut him down, making him the 15th player on the team to land on injured reserve this season.
