The team is also activating LB Jordan Jenkins from injured reserve after he was sidelined with a torn PCL and placing veteran OL Lane Taylor on the COVID-19 list.

Veasy, 26, signed with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Cal in 2018. He was waived coming out of the preseason and caught on with the Jaguars late in the year. 

Veasy signed a futures deal with the Colts in 2019 but was waived coming out of the preseason in 2020. He would later have a brief stint on the Bills’ practice squad. From there, Washington added him to their taxi squad before placing him on injured reserve coming out of training camp. 

During his two-year college career, Veasy caught 63 passes for 797 yards and nine touchdowns in 22 career games.
