Starting left guard Kory Lichtensteiger did not practice Wednesday because of a sprained left ankle and said he might know until Sunday morning whether he’ll suit up against the Seahawks. 

“We’ll do treatment and try to increase the work level a little bit and see what I can handle,” Lichtensteiger said of his plan for the week. “It’s nothing serious, it’s just something that’s going to hurt. Nothing surgical, so from that standpoint it’s a relief.”

“I’m going to try that much harder,” he added, when asked if there’s more urgency because it’s the playoffs. “But I just don’t know.”

If Lichtensteiger can’t go, he’ll likely be replaced by rookie Josh LeRibeus, who saw his first snaps on offense against the Cowboys.

Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins also did not practice (flu). Linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and cornerback D.J. Johnson (knee) were held out, as well.
