Wash­ing­ton Red­skins

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NFC EAST -

Last week was come­back week for TE Jor­dan Reed and LBs Ju­nior Galette and Ryan An­der­son.

All had missed sig­nif­i­cant time with in­juries, but they re­turned to the prac­tice field, and two got into game ac­tion against the Cincin­nati Ben­gals on Aug. 27.

Galette had been out for the long­est. The for­mer New Or­leans Saints star last ap­peared in a reg­u­lar-sea­son game Dec. 28, 2014, miss­ing the last two sea­sons with Achilles ten­don in­juries. He was in on two tack­les against the Ben­gals.

Reed, who opened camp on the phys­i­cally un­able to per­form list, said he no longer has pain in his toe. He caught two passes for 12 yards in his first pre­sea­son ac­tion.

An­der­son, who suf­fered a shoul­der stinger in the pre­sea­son opener, has been lim­ited in prac­tice and did not play on the 27th.

Rookie watch: Vet­eran C Spencer Long had arthro­scopic surgery last week to re­pair car­ti­lage dam­age in his knee, so the Red­skins are groom­ing sixth-rounder Chase Roul­lier for the start­ing role. He would be the only new face on an of­fen­sive line that has re­turned in­tact.

Note­wor­thy: To shore up the cen­ter po­si­tion, Wash­ing­ton ac­quired un­drafted rookie Lu­cas

Crow­ley from the Pitts­burgh Steel­ers in ex­change for CB Dashaun Phillips. … S DeAn­gelo Hall said he ex­pected to start the sea­son on the phys­i­cally un­able to play list, which would keep him out un­til at least Week 7.
