Commanders announced 15 players signed to the practice squad

The Washington Commanders wasted no time in formulating their practice squad Wednesday, announcing they had signed 15 players. Teams can have 16 players on the practice squad, so the Commanders have an open spot. However, that opening is expected to go to linebacker Jabril Cox, formerly of the Dallas Cowboys, per Mike Garofolo of the NFL Network.

For those worrying about Washington losing quarterback Jake Fromm or rookie wide receiver Kazmeir Allen, both are back on the practice squad. Fromm had an excellent preseason and will be Washington’s third quarterback.

Allen, an undrafted rookie from UCLA, was a running back in college before moving to wide receiver in his final season. He proved to be an electric kick returner in college but had no experience returning punts. Washington tried him at returning punts, and while he showed promise, he muffed a punt in the preseason finale.

Of the 15 players announced, all were with the Commanders in training camp and the preseason.

Here is the complete list:

  • QB Jake Fromm

  • RB Derrick Gore

  • RB/TE Alex Armah

  • WR Kazmeir Allen

  • WR Brycen Tremayne

  • G Mason Brooks

  • G/C Nolan Laufenberg

  • T Alex Akingbulu

  • T Jaryd Jones-Smith

  • DE William Bradley-King

  • DT Benning Potoa’e

  • LB De’Jon Harris

  • CB Nick Whiteside

  • CB Tariq Castro-Fields

  • S Terrell Burgess
