According to Adam Caplan, the Redskins will promote OLB Houston Bates from their practice squad on Saturday.
Bates, 24, is an undrafted free agent out of Louisiana Tech. He was apart of the Redskins’ roster cuts this offseason, but was added back to the practice squad.
Bates has actually played considerably well this preseason, accumulating three sacks and four tackles. Pro Football Focus ranks him as the No. 18 overall outside linebacker in a 3-4 set this preseason.
