Washington Redskins[edit]

On March 11, 2014, Lauvao signed a four-year, $17 million contract with the Washington Redskins.[4] He took over the starting left guard position in the Redskins' offensive line after the previous starter, Kory Lichtensteiger, switched to center.[5][6]

On November 21, 2017, Lauvao was placed on injured reserve after dealing with a stinger injury that sidelined him for a few weeks prior.[8]

On May 4, 2018, Lauvao re-signed with the Redskins.[9] On November 5, he was placed on injured reserve after suffering a torn ACL in Week 9.[10]
