Washington made some practice squad moves today, as they continue to churn the “bottom” of their roster. Safety Cole Luke spent time with the team last year, and ended up on the 53-man roster in November. He was re-signed to the practice squad last week, but that was a short-lived visit. Kelvin Harmon tore his ACL last June while training on his own for his 2nd NFL season. He spent the 2020 season on the non-football injury list. Harmon was released in August, but signed to the team’s practice squad 3 weeks ago. Harmon never made the protected list, or got elevated to the active roster. He is now a free agent again.
Washington added two players to replace Luke and Harmon. Kicker Chris Blewitt was signed to the practice squad earlier in the month, but only lasted 8 days. He was brought back this week for a tryout with two other kickers(Sam Sloman, Lirim Hajrullahu). Blewitt will serve as the emergency/COVID-19 kicker for now.
Washington also signed LB De’Jon Harris(6’, 230lbs) to the practice squad. He was signed as an undrafted free agent from Arkansas by the New England Patriots after last year’s draft. After being released during final roster cuts, he was signed to the Green Bay Packers practice squad. Harris was elevated for two games, but never signed to the 53-man roster after. He rejoined the Packers after the season, but was released before at final roster cuts, and has been a free agent.
