Redskins Depth chart review: Rashad Ross solidifies KR role

The latest unofficial depth chart ahead of Thursday's game at the New York Giants

The Washington Redskins released their latest unofficial depth chart. Here's what stands out...

  • The Redskins announced Monday the release of former 2013 second-round pick David Amerson. Defensive end Frank Kearse re-signed. Washington cut Kearse after ahead of the Week 1 game with Miami, re-signed following the loss and then repeated the process this week.

  • With Chris Culliver returning from suspension, the Redskins have their top cornerbacks available simultaneously for the first time this season. Culliver and DeAngelo Hall are listed at starters followed by Bashaud Breeland and Will Blackmon, who was signed last week. Justin Rogers (plantar fasciitis) is the fifth corner.

  • Inside linebacker Terrance Plummer remains active. The Redskins added him from the practice squad last week with Martrell Spaight (concussion) injured. The pair are behind primary ILB backup WIll Compton

  • Rashad Ross is now listed as the primary kick returner, ahead of Chris Thompson and Andre Roberts. He served in that role against the Rams and returned his lone opportunity 23 yards.

  • DeSean Jackson (hamstring) remains listed as the starting wide receiver even though he's expected to miss the next 2-3 weeks. Ryan Grant replaced Jackson in the starting lineup Sunday.
