Redskins claim LB Kehl off of waivers

The Redskins have brought back linebacker Bryan Kehl, who was waived by the team during the final roster cuts.

Kehl has been with the Chiefs since the signed him on Oct. 3. The move was announced in a tweet by his agent.

The Redskins liked his play during training camp and in the preseason but he ran into a numbers game and was released. They had an roster opening after linebacker Keenan Robinson went on injured reserve earlier this week. The team had signed Roddrick Muckelroy to fill the spot but that was before they knew Kehl would be available.

According to Adam Caplan of FoxSports.com, the Redskins released linebacker Mario Addison to make room for Kehl. 

Kehl is in his fifth NFL season after being drafted in the fourth round out of BYU by the Giants. He also played for the Rams.

Report: Mason Foster getting second opinion on dislocated shoulder

Report: Mason Foster getting second opinion on dislocated shoulder

Mason Foster saved the Redskins’ win last Sunday. He might be watching this Sunday’s game from the sideline, according to a report.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Foster is getting a second opinion on the shoulder that he dislocated in the second quarter of the Redskins’ win in Los Angeles. Rapoport said that it is "likely" that Foster will be out against the Raiders on Sunday night.

Foster popped the joint back into place and continued to play, not missing a snap. After the Redskins took the lead with less than two minutes to play, Foster sealed the 27-20 win with an interception on the Rams’ first play after the score.

The severity of the shoulder injury is not known, but if he is going to get a second opinion that usually means that the initial diagnosis was a fairly severe injury. The fact that he played with it for a half doesn’t mean that the injury won’t cause him to miss time. It’s not unusual for the adrenaline of being in the game will allow a player to push through an injury but problems pop up the following morning.

Fortunately for the Redskins, they do have an experienced backup should Foster miss any time. Will Compton has played in 50 games with the Redskins with 29 starts, including 15 starts last year.

Jay Gruden will speak to the media about Foster and several other Redskins who came out of Sunday’s game with injuries following the team’s practice, which starts at 1:45 p.m.
