With the lack of football action this time of year, wouldn't you want to see some less-heralded players in action?

The Redskins announced on Tuesday that they have signed wide receiver David Gettis to a futures contract.

After 16 weeks of working, preparing and hoping to catch his break, rookie practice squad linebacker Will Compton finally received the nod earlier this week.

Linebacker Nick Barnett will miss the final game of the season after tearing the medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Meanwhile, outside linebacker Brian Orakpo is day-to-day with a groin strain.

The Redskins on Wednesday claimed former Denver Broncos center J.D. Walton off of waivers and released wide receiver Lance Lewis, according to the NFL's daily transaction report.

The Redskins promoted rookie running back Jawan Jamison to the 53-man roster to fill the spot vacated by Evan Royster, who suffered a season-ending injury.

The cornerback was re-signed to the practice squad in September after he failed to make the season-opening roster.

The Redskins have promoted wide receiver Lance Lewis from their practice squad to their 53-man roster.

After 10 weeks of living out of a portable metal locker in the center of the Redskins’ locker room, rookie wide receiver Nick Williams is ready to be a contributor.

The undrafted player from Maryland has been on three practice squads prior to this.
