Redskins guard Brandon Scherff may have suffered a torn pectoral muscle, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Scherff and right guard Shawn Lauvao (knee) are both undergoing MRIs on Monday.

It's worth noting Rapoport, back in August, was first to report running back Derrius Guice suffered a sprained MCL, when an MRI later showed he had, in fact, suffered a season-ending ACL tear.

Kareem Copeland of The Post reports Washington hosted six free agent offensive linemen for workouts at Redskins Park on Monday.

Scherff went down in the third quarter, wincing and grabbing his chest/shoulder area

The Redskins were already down starting left tackle Trent Williams, who had thumb surgery last week and is expected to miss close to a month, entering Sunday's game. Ty Nsekhe started the game at left tackle, but would eventually slide over to play left guard once Scherff went down. Chase Roullier remained at center, while Tony Bergstrom moved to right guard and rookie Geron Christian made his NFL debut at left tackle. Morgan Moses, who went down early in the game with a knee injury, had returned to right tackle well before that point.

Lauvao went down early in the first quarter with an apparent knee injury and did not return.
