The Washington Redskins did not add a punter to their roster Saturday, apparently signaling that the team believes Sav Rocca is sufficiently healthy to punt Sunday against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.
The team announced no roster moves and a Redskins official confirmed that no moves had been made.
Coach Mike Shanahan said Friday that the team would pick a punter Saturday after evaluating the soundness of Rocca’s knee.
Rocca suffered a knee injury while jogging after a practice this week, according to Shanahan. The Redskins auditioned three punters Friday at Redskins Park, including former Pittsburgh Steelers punter Daniel Sepulveda and former Philadelphia Eagles punter Chas Henry.
Shanahan said the Redskins would evaluate Rocca on Saturday to see if he could punt, and make a roster move to add a punter if Rocca was unable.
Rocca also serves as the Redskins’ holder on field goals and extra points.
The Redskins announced earlier Saturday that wide receiver Leonard Hankerson had been added to their injury report. Hankerson is listed as probable with an illness, the team announced.
