The Washington Redskins appear poised to re-sign Jordan Pugh to improve their depth at safety for Sunday’s game at Denver.

Pugh was with the Redskins but was released when the club made a flurry of moves last week to bolster its special teams. A person familiar with the team’s planning said Tuesday the Redskins were making arrangements to re-sign Pugh. It was not immediately clear if Pugh’s return is contingent upon the NFL’s two-game suspension of Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather being upheld.

Meriweather’s appeal is scheduled to be heard Wednesday. The Redskins are permitted to sign a player to replace Meriweather on the roster during his suspension.

Also, the playing status of safety Reed Doughty is unclear this week. He suffered a concussion during Sunday’s win over the Chicago Bears at FedEx Field and would have to be cleared by an independent neurologist to practice and play.
