RICHMOND – Injured cornerback Courtney Bridget Jr. passed through waivers unclaimed and now will revert to Washington’s injured reserve list, according to the NFL’s daily transaction report.
The 6 feet 3, 195-pound Bridget tore the labrum in his right shoulder during Monday’s practice and had an MRI the following day. It was learned that he will need surgery and will miss the entire season. Washington waived him Wednesday. Because he went unclaimed and reverts to the team’s injured reserve list, Washington retains Bridget’s rights.
Meanwhile, starting right tackle Tyler Polumbus rejoined his team after missing the last two practices to tend to a personal matter.
Polumbus went through Thursday’s afternoon walkthrough.
Coach Jay Gruden said that the team doesn’t yet know the extent of the injury that rookie wide receiver Jerry Rice Jr. suffered Thursday morning. Rice, the son of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, left the practice session after injuring his shoulder.
Gruden said the team was still waiting for the results of the tests, but added, “It’s pretty significant, I believe.”
The Redskins earlier this month signed Rice, who went undrafted out of UNLV.
