ASHBURN, Va. — The Washington Redskins have re-signed wide receiver Brian Quick.
The team announced the signing Tuesday in a flurry of roster moves that included putting rookie receiver Cam Sims on injured reserve. Quick spent last season with Washington and was released Sept. 1.
Bringing back Quick makes sense after the Redskins lost Sims and and Trey Quinn and Cam Sims to high-ankle sprains in a season-opening victory at Arizona on Sunday.
Quick dressed in 11 games last season, making six catches for 76 yards. He's a favourite of Gruden's and was on the bubble to make the roster out of training camp.
Washington also elevated defensive back Kenny Ladler to the active roster from the practice squad and waived linebacker Josh Keyes.
