Commanders place rookie Ricky Stromberg on IR; sign OL from Eagles’ practice squad

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.
