Marcus Mason, the kid from Georgetown Prep who led the NFL in rushing in preseason (admittedly the Redskins played an extra game) won’t be coming back to Washington. He was signed to Baltimore’s practice squad.

But apparently the Redskins weren’t holding their final practice squad spot open to re-sign Mason, whom they cut on Saturday. A team source re-iterated coach Zorn’s comments that Mason had made some mental errors in the preseason finale against Jacksonville. The team source said that Mason couldn’t master Zorn’s offense and wasn’t a good enough special teams player to stick around for a second year on Washington’s practice squad.
