Chris Russell has learned that Brandyn Thompson will be promoted to the 53-man roster to replace Phillip Buchanon who will be finishing the year on IR.
The Redskins signed Buchanon, who had a mediocre year at cornerback for the Redskins last season and an even worse year as a punt returner. Upon inking his deal with the Skins, it was learned he was to serve a four game suspension. Did the Redskins swing and miss badly with this move? To this point perhaps, but only time will tell.
Brandyn Thompson shined in the preseason and looked like a good prospect for the future.
