Redskins Place ILB Akeem Jordan On I.R., Activate DE Stephen Bowen From PUP List


The Washington Redskins announced Saturday that they have placed ILB Akeem Jordan season-ending injured reserve and DE Stephen Bowen from the physically unable to perform list.

Jordan, 29, signed a one-year contract worth $920,000 with the Redskins back in March. He wasn’t listed on the team’s injury reports this week.

Jordan’s 2014 season ends after he appeared in two games and recorded one tackle. He’ll test the free agent market again next March.


ESPN Radio 980 has confirmed with multiple sources that the Redskins are activating DE Stephen Bowen from the physically unable to perform list for Sunday’s game against the Titans.

According to the report, Washington has yet to make a corresponding roster move to free up a spot for him.

Bowen, 30, underwent microfracture surgery on his knee several months ago and wasn’t ready to return at the start of the regular season. However, he has made progress in recent weeks, so we’ll have to see if he plays tomorrow.

Washington restructured his contract last month and freed up $2.3 million in cap space after they reduced his base salary by $2.8 million.

Last season, appeared in 10 games and played a total of 422 snaps while recording 19 tackles and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 39 defensive end in a 3-4 system out of 45 qualifying players.
