The Washington Commanders were busy making roster moves on their off day Tuesday, first, placing rookie center Ricky Stromberg on the reserve/injured list. The third-round pick from Arkansas injured his knee in the Week 8 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Replacing Stromberg on the roster is Julian Good-Jones. Washington signed Good-Jones from the Eagles’ practice squad. Good-Jones, 26, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2020 out of Iowa State. Philadelphia released Good-Jones during its final cuts that summer.
In 2021, Good-Jones signed with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League, where he spent two seasons. While in the CFL, Good-Jones was a part of a Calgary offensive line that led the league in rushing.
Last January, Good-Jones returned to the NFL, signing a reserve future contract with the Eagles. Philadelphia released Good-Jones this summer and re-signed him to the practice squad.
Stromberg appeared in four games this season at guard.
Washington also added two names to the practice squad, bringing back a familiar face in Jonathan Williams and also signing linebacker Brandon Bouyer-Randle.
The Commanders return to practice Wednesday to begin preparation for their Week 12 game at Seattle.
The Commanders made multiple roster moves:
*Signed G Julian Good-Jones from Philly's practice squad
*Placed C Ricky Stromberg (knee0 on IR
*Signed LB Brandon Bouyer-Randle to the practice squad
*Re-signed RB Jonathan Williams to the practice squad
