With Long out, the Redskins turned to John Sullivan at center. Both while Long was playing and with Sullivan at center, the 'Skins O-line has struggled against Arizona, dealing with penalties and consistent pressure on QB Kirk Cousins.

In his third year out of Nebraska, Long was drafted to be a guard but converted to center once Kory Lichtensteiger got hurt earlier this season. Long's play has been steady and at times quite strong, a positive development for the franchise.
