Tight end Jason Goode, the rookie free agent from Maryland, wasn’t on the field. His right foot was in a walking boot to protect the turf toe he suffered making a grab in the fourth quarter against the Jets eight minutes before his game-winning touchdown catch.

“It’s one of those things that you have to deal with,” Goode said. “My priority is always my health, making sure my foot is OK.”

Receiver Antwaan Randle El (hamstring), running back Ladell Betts (knee) and guard Randy Thomas (knee) all practiced. Rookie receiver Malcolm Kelly ran some routes in individual drills and could make his debut Saturday at Carolina. Linebacker H.B. Blades (knee) figures to play for the first time this preseason against the Panthers.

Wallace waived

Rian Wallace has a knack for making plays. Unfortunately, the former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker also has a knack for getting hurt, and that cost him his roster spot. Wallace missed the preseason opener after breaking a hand in the intrasquad scrimmage and followed that by separating his shoulder against the Jets. Given that he would miss the final two preseason games, the Redskins cut Wallace on Monday and signed linebacker David Holloway.

A three-year starter at Maryland, Holloway was on Arizona’s practice squad as a rookie last season until being activated for the final game. His father, Brian, starred at Churchill High School and went on to be a Pro Bowl offensive tackle with the New England Patriots.
