The Washington Redskins have promoted nose tackle Chris Baker from the practice squad to the 53-man roster, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.

A third-year player out of Hampton University, the 6-foot-2, 329-pound Baker had spent the entire season on the practice squad.

He previously appeared in a game for the Denver Broncos in 2009 and one game for the Miami Dolphins in 2010 but didn’t record a tackle in either contest.

The Redskins also have nose tackles Barry Cofield and rookie Chris Neild on the roster.
