The Redskins filled out their 10-man practice squad on Monday by bringing rookie safety Akeem Davis back into the fold, and by signing linebacker Chaz Sutton.
Davis spent the preseason with Washington, shining on special teams, and made the initial 53-man roster on Saturday. But Washington waived the Memphis product on Sunday to make room for safety Duke Ihenacho, who was claimed off waivers.
Davis this preseason recorded four tackles.
Sutton went undrafted out of South Carolina, but spent the preseason with Tampa Bay. He recorded one tackle in three preseason games. The 6-foot-3, 245-pound Sutton started 15 games during his five-year career at South Carolina, recording 75 tackles, eight sacks, four forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and an interception returned for a touchdown.
Washington had two openings remaining on its practice squad prior to these two signings.
Wide receiver Nick Williams, cornerback Richard Crawford, running back Chris Thompson, cornerback Chase Minnifield, safety Phillip Thomas, center Tevita Stevens, nose tackle Robert Thomas and tight end Ted Bolser round out the practice squad.
