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.
Lauvao is questionable to return to Sunday's game with a neck injury, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Lauvao was questionable for Sunday's game as he has been dealing with a neck stinger since late October, and he appears to have aggravated the injury. Tony Bergstrom stepped in at left guard in his absence.
Lauvao (neck) is active for Sunday's tilt against New Orleans.
Lauvao played every offensive snap in Week 10 and will be playing through injury once again. Barring a setback, he shouldn't be limited during the game.
