The Washington Redskins announced Wednesday that they’ve designated C Kory Lichtensteiger as their player to return from injured reserve.
- The Redskins also signed CB Dashaun Phillips to their practice squad.
Lichtensteiger, 31, is a former fourth-round pick of the Broncos back in 2008. He lasted just over a year in Denver before he was waived and later claimed by the Redskins.
Lichtensteiger is in the fourth year of his five-year, $17.5 million contract that included a $2.75 million signing bonus. He was set to make a base salary of $3.5 million for the 2016 season before agreeing to a pay cut at the start of the season.
The Redskins placed him on injured reserve a few weeks into the regular season.
This year, Lichtensteiger has appeared in three games for the Redskins. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 16 center out of 34 qualifying players.
