The Redskins have finally announced the 8 players for the practice squad. Although there is speculation that a trade may occur in the future prior to Sunday's game to bring in additional O-Line or D-Line depth, for now the 53-man roster and the practice squad are set. I hadn't seen the complete list posted anywhere else on HogsHaven, so I have decided to include it below:
As per Gary Fitzgerald at Redskins.com, the practice squad is as follows.
Chris Baker NT 2nd-Year Player; Formerly With Denver Jonathan Crompton QB 1st-Year Player; Formerly With T.B. Maurice Hurt OL 2011 7th-Round Draft Pick Nate Ness CB 2nd-Year Player; Formerly With Miami Eric Olsen C/G 1st-Year Player; Formerly With Denver Aldrick Robinson WR 2011 6th-Round Draft Pick Evan Royster RB 2011 6th-Round Draft Pick Doug Worthington DE 1st-Year Player; Signed In August
The two notable additions other than this year's draft picks who had previously been cut (Hurt, Anderson, Royster) are Jonathon Crompton (QB) and Eric Olsen (C/G). Crompton was a 2010 5th round draft choice out of Tennessee. He is 6'4" and 225 lbs. Crompton is likely a Shanahan project player who can also help run the scout team in practice. Eric Olsen was a 2010 6th round draft choice out of Notre Dame, and has likely been brought in to support the interior of the offensive line in case of an injury to a starter.
Will the Skins make a trade before Sunday's (9/11) game against the Giants?
