The following five players had been signed to the Redskins practice squad.

S Lendy Holmes

DE Rob Jackson

WR Trent Shelton

DE J.D. Skolnitsky

FB Eddie Williams

Notably absent from the list is quarterback Chase Daniel. There are three more spots to fill in.

Update: Per Jason LaCanfora, Daniel has signed with the Saints practice squad. If this is true, the Redskins have to find a quarterback.

Update 2: Also per LaCanfora, LB Cody Glenn has signed on to the Colts’ practice squad.

Update 3: Per Chris Mortensen, Redskins have targeted 6′ 5″ QB Andre Woodson, out of Kentucky by way of the New York Giants (6th-round pick in 2008) to add to the practice squad.

Update 4: Per Redskins Insider, the Redskins have signed Woodson to the PS. That leaves two more spots to go.

Update 5: Woodson was cut by the Giants on Saturday. Have to figure that his first order of business will be a thorough debriefing with Greg Blache and the rest of the defensive staff.

    Reports Daniels goikg to NO?

    Yes, it appears that Daniel decided to sign with the Saints practice squad.

    Kind of a shame that we lost Daniels. I have to think there’s more to this story. I mean, he’d already learned started to learn the Skins offense and had a little preseason success. With only 2 active QBs, you have to figure he’s one injury away from being active on gameday. That’s not bad for an undrafted guy.

    I guess he saw a better opportunity with the Saints. I don’t get it.

    Wish we’d taken Jamon Meredith instead of Glenn now that our 5th round pick is a colt.

    Meredith did get cut by the Packers; not that he might not have been more needed in Washington.

    It was one of two things with Daniel. Either the Redskins saw that Woodson would be available and figured that he’d be a better option or Daniel looked at a team with a six-foot QB passing for 5,000 yards and a 39-year-old backup in Mark Brunell.

    Duke Robinson was NOT cut by the Panthers, even though they obviously already have one of the stronger starting O-lines in the game. As we said on draft day, it will be interesting to track his career. I remember, Rich, you were defending their neglect of the OL, arguing that it showed belief in Devin Clark and other existing reserves. With Clark, Jeremy Bridges and others getting axed, and Mike Williams struggling (as John Keim notes) I think you could argue that the season-long prognosis for the OL is even worse now than on draft day… why we passed on that potential depth i still have no idea.

    Not that the Redskins might not regret passing on Robinson but he’s a guard. I actually think that the Redskins aren’t in bad shape there with Montgomery (who made the Panthers last year) and, to a lesser extent, Reinhart and E. Williams.

    The tackle situation is truly scary.
