Nick Sundberg is expected to be activated from injured reserve today. To make room for the long snapper, the team is expected to release Justin Snow, according to a source with knowledge of the move.
Sundberg was placed on IR with a broken arm that he suffered during the season opener in New Orleans. Sundberg, however, was granted Washington’s one injured reserve exemption, allowing him to return this season.
He spent Tuesday morning at Redskins Park snapping the ball to punter Sav Rocca.
“It’s difficult for him, because as a punter, you want to get into a rhythm,” Sundberg said of Rocca. “Now that we’re changing things again, I just want to get out there and get as much work as we can, so when we step back on the field against Philly, everything is fluid and the way we want it.”
Sundberg said he plans to spend the remainder of the bye week in Phoenix working with his snapping coach.

ROSTER BATTLES: Left guard | Tight end | Nickel cornerback | Inside linebacker | Running back

The Redskins have a lot to feel good about going into Memorial Day weekend. Fabian Moreau, a cornerback out of UCLA and the Redskins' 81st pick, has officially signed with the team.
The 6-foot, 200-pound CB tore his pectoral muscle during the bench press at his pro day, but he recently told Redskins Insider JP Finlay that his rehab is going well. There is hope Moreau could return to the field in August or September.
All 10 of Washington's draft picks this season are now under contract with Moreau's signing.
The Redskins' 2017 draft class includes:
- Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama (No. 17 Overall, Rd. 1)
- Ryan Anderson, OLB, Alabama (No. 49 Overall, Rd. 2)
- Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA (No. 81 Overall, Rd. 3)
- Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma (No. 114 Overall, Rd. 4)
