ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins guard Dave Fiore will have surgery Friday on his sore right knee.

Fiore, who has missed three straight games, hopes to miss just two more and return Nov. 9 against Seattle. The soreness is a lingering effect from Fiore's season-ending knee injury a year ago while with San Francisco.

Fiore signed a four-year, $6.5 million contract with the Redskins in the offseason. Rookie Derrick Dockery has been starting in his place.
