Redskins Sign CB Deshazor Everett From Practice Squad; Release DE Frank Kearse

New, comments

Frank Kearse is released for the third week this year as the Redskins once again try to fill in the blanks in the secondary

The Redskins continue to deal with injuries in the secondary, and have signed another cornerback to the roster today. Deshazor Everett was with the team during the offseason, and made the initial 53-man roster, only to be released to make room for TE Anthony McCoy.  Everett has been on the practice squad since then, waiting for his opportunity to be signed to the main roster.  The Redskins lost DeAngelo Hall for an unknown amount of time to a toe injury, and are now dealing with #1 CB Chris Culliver's knee injury that happened in practice on Wednesday.  The team had hoped he would be ready to play on Sunday, but he was unable to practice the rest of the week, and the promotion of Everett makes his chances of playing look slimmer.  If Culliver is out, expect Bashaud Breeland and Will Blackmon to be the top CBs, with rookie safety Kyshoen Jarrett, converted WR Quinton Dunbar, and Everett possibly getting time on the field.

Frank Kearse gets the axe on the eve of gameday for the 3rd week this year, and will enjoy cashing his paycheck from the couch again this week.  Kedric Golston was injured last week, but with Kearse's release, it appears that he will be ready to go against the Eagles after going through a full practice on Friday.

In other roster news from this week, LB Sage Harold was re-signed to the practice squad on Friday. He replaced LB Ryan Delaire who was signed by the Carolina Panthers.
