After featuring some duplicate numbers on their training camp/preseason roster, the Redskins have reassigned digits to a few players now that the ranks have thinned out.
Running back Silas Redd will now wear No. 32, inside linebacker Will Compton No. 51 and outside linebacker Gabe Miller No. 50.
During training camp and the preseason, when the roster stood at 90 players, Redd wore No. 24, which was the same as safety Bacarri Rambo. The No. 32 had belonged first to cornerback Peyton Thompson, and then to safety Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith, both no longer with the team.
Compton wore No. 46, as did starting running back Alfred Morris. Outside linebacker Everette Brown had wore 51 prior to his release.
Miller wore 45, which was the same number as fullback Stephen Campbell, who didn’t survive cuts, and nobody on the 53-man roster has that number, but Miller opted to change his number anyway. Outside linebacker Rob Jackson wore 50 prior to getting cut.
The Redskins have given newly acquired safety Duke Ihenacho No. 35. (Editor’s note: Both Lache Seastrunk and Akeem Davis wore this number in the preseason. Also, Chris Thompson and Ryan Clark shared No. 25 in preseason games, but that’s not currently an issue on the active roster).
