Washington was dealt a blow when tight end Logan Thomas suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday’s game against Atlanta, forcing him to miss some time. We now know that he’ll be out at least three weeks after the team placed him on injured reserve Wednesday.

To take his place on the 53-man roster, Washington signed tight end Jace Sternberger off the Seahawks’ practice squad.

Sternberger spent last season with the Packers, catching 12 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown. He came into the NFL as a third-round pick by Green Bay in 2019 but has played just 18 games in his career.

Ricky Seals-Jones played 93% of the offensive snaps against the Falcons so he’ll help replace Thomas, but Sternberger is also an option at tight end.
