Tackle Tyler Polumbus did not appear to be present for the start of Wednesday’s practice, which was being held inside the practice bubble as a wintry mix fell in Ashburn.

Polumbus missed Sunday’s game in Philadelphia with a concussion that he sustained the previous week in Cleveland. Maurice Hurt performed solidly in place of Polumbus, who was supposed to be examined by team doctors Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, according to Coach Mike Shanahan.

The other players who got dinged against the Eagles – safety DeJon Gomes (knee), Kedric Golston (shoulder) and Josh Wilson (shoulder) – were present at the start of practice.
