The Redskins offensive line just took a huge hit.
Sitting at 2-1 on the season, the Redskins can attribute a lot of their success so far to the offensive line's ability to keep Kirk Cousins upright and to open up the offense for big plays and touchdowns.
However, it sounds like that unit may be missing one of its best players for the next few weeks. According to reports, offensive lineman Ty Nsekhe underwent core muscle surgery and is now expected to miss the next 3-6 weeks as he recovers.

The veteran lineman has started in 32 out of a possible 35 games for the Redskins since the start of the 2015 season, and has been an instrumental part of that unit since joining the team.
With Trent Williams continuing to anchor down the left tackle position, the team will likely turn to Morgan Moses to take over at right tackle until Nsekhe is back and healthy.
