Brandyn Thompson back on Redskins’ 53-man roster

The Redskins will re-sign rookie cornerback Brandyn Thompson to the 53-man roster to help bolster their battered secondary and have released offensive lineman Jonathan Compas to make room for him.

Thompson opened the season on the 53-man roster and appeared in two games, but was cut and then re-signed to the practice squad during the bye week to make room for veteran Phillip Buchanon. Buchanon missed the first four games while on suspension.

Compas, a guard/center, was signed as a free agent Wednesday, but did not impress coaches during three practices.

Starting cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall (hip) and Josh Wilson (hamstring) were both limited in practice this week. Buchanon, suffering from a neck injury, also was limited.

Thompson, whom Washington drafted in the seventh round out of Boise State, recorded two tackles in his two games.
