LaRon Landry is active, will start for Redskins vs. Cowboys, plus list of inactive players

Washington Redskins strong safety LaRon Landry will start for his team Monday night against the Dallas Cowboys.

Landry missed the first two games of the regular season while nursing a strained right hamstring. The fifth-year pro hasn’t played since Week 9 of the 2010 season after a strained left Achilles’ tendon forced him to end the year on injured reserve.

Landry recorded 85 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and an interception last season. He was in the running for Defensive Player of the Year before going down with injury.

The LSU product spent all of training camp and the first two weeks of the preseason further strengthening the Achilles’ tendon, on which he had platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments during the offseason rather than traditional surgery.

Inactives for tonight’s game are wide receiver Donte Stallworth, defensive lineman Darrion Scott, linebacker Markus White, safety DeJon Gomes, tackle Willie Smith and fullback Darrel Young, who is nursing a hamstring injury.

Inactives for Dallas are place kicker David Buehler, wide receiver Miles Austin, cornerback Orlando Scandrick, running back Phillip Tanner, guard David Arkin, guard Derrick Dockery and defensive end Clifton Geathers.

Tony Romo will start at quarterback, and starting in place of Austin is Kevin Ogletree. Fellow wide receiver Dez Bryant is active as well.
