Brandon Banks makes the roster

In case there was any doubt, second-year punt/kick return specialist Brandon Banks has solidified a spot on the 53-man roster, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

Banks had missed the last two preseason games with a bad left knee, but returned to action Thursday and reeled off a 95-yard punt return for a touchdown.

The Redskins will continue to monitor Banks’ knee.
