Update: Mychal Kendricks officially signed, Shaun Dion Hamilton placed on IR

Washington is reportedly making another roster move today as injuries continue to add up at the linebacker position. Mychal Kendricks will be signed from the Seattle Seahawks practice squad. He was not with the Seahawks when they came to Fed Ex Field yesterday and beat the Washington Football Team 20-15. Kendricks will fly privately and will be available to join the team immediately under the updated COVID-19 protocols.

Mychal Kendricks was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2nd round in 2012. He played there for 6 seasons, starting 74 games. He was released in the 2018 offseason, and faced with some serious insider trading charges in August of that year. The sentencing for that case has reportedly been pushed back until January of next year. Kendricks made his way to the Seahawks, and started 17 games over the last two seasons. He hasn't played during the regular season this year, but that could change quickly here.

Washington's linebacker corps was banged up going into yesterday's game, and then Shaun Dion Hamilton left the game with an elbow injury. LBs Cole Holcomb(concussion) and Kevin Pierre-Louis(ankle) were ruled out of the game during the week. Thomas Davis is too slow to be any kind of option. Khaleke Hudson had to step up due to the mounting injuries. Adding a veteran like Kendricks could mean one or more of Washington's LBs is expected to miss more time.
