The Washington Redskins claimed linebacker Bryan Kehl after the Kansas City Chiefs released him. He played three games for the Chiefs and was with Washington for the preseason but did not make the cut. The Redskins released linebacker Mario Addison to make room for Kehl.
Redskins LT Trent Williams and LB London Fletcher did not practice on Wednesday but they are probably to play on Monday against the Giants.
The Redskins have ended right tackle Jammal Brown’s season after he was placed on the reserve/physically-unable-to-perform list at Tuesday’s deadline to activate him. He suffered a set back after having left hip ligament surgery.
Redskins vs Giants
Monday, 7:30 pm CST
Robert Griffin III has been a great rookie quarterback for the Redskins especially over the last two games.
The New York Giants suffered a loss last week when RB Andre Brown broke his fibula. Safety Kenny Phillips should be able to play despite suffering a knee injury and offensive tackle David Dehl is questionable for Monday night after leaving the game with neck pain.
The Redskins need to watch out for Hakeem Nicks. He looked pretty healthy in the game against the Packers last week as he caught five passes for 77 yards and a touchdown.
When the Redskins and Giants met in Week 7, they had trouble containing the Giants defense of Justin Tuck, Jason Pierre-Paul and Osi Umenyiora. They sacked RG3 three times in that match up. They will definitely have an impact on the Redskins running game if they play the same way they did in Week 7.
This game will be a close one. Tune in Monday night to see the outcome.
