After Clearing Waivers, Chase Minnifield Placed On Injured Reserve

By ZAC BOYER | zboyer@freelancestar.com | @ZacBoyer

ASHBURN – Former University of Virginia cornerback Chase Minnifield cleared waivers Wednesday and was placed on injured reserve by the Washington Redskins.

Minnifield’s agent said Tuesday the undrafted rookie underwent a second surgical procedure on his right knee within the past six weeks. He originally sustained an injury to the knee in January and had arthroscopic surgery, which was a large part of why the project mid-round pick was not drafted.

The Redskins designated the 6-foot, 186-pound Minnifield as waived/injured, which allowed them to take him off the 90-man training camp roster and retain his rights provided he cleared waivers.

Washington also released offensive lineman Nevin McCaskill, a 6-foot-3, 309-pound offensive tackle out of Hampton who signed a futures contract with the team in January. Dorson Boyce, a 6-foot-2, 231-pound fullback who was in training camp with Seattle last season, was signed to replace McCaskill.
