Cornerback Chase Minnifeld was signed off the practice squad on Friday, filling the roster spot that had been vacant for three days.
The Redskins made some roster moves including sending Stephen Bowen to the injured reserve list.
On Thursday, in a 34-27 road loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Redskins were humiliated by a botched fake punt attempt in the third quarter that was negated by a penalty, then were left with an 11-yard net gain on the ensuing try. It was the fifth time in six games the Redskins have had a miscue on special teams.
That unit is expected to act like clockwork. Hit field goals and extra-point attempts, don't turn the ball over, provide the occasional big play and make sure the opponent doesn't. It's a pretty simple formula, but so far the Washington Redskins have struggled to execute it.
