Redskins Announce Signing Of Eight Players To Practice Squad
ASHBURN – The Washington Redskins signed three of their training camp players to the practice squad, they announced Monday – offensive tackle Tom Compton, defensive end Doug Worthington and running back Antwon Bailey.
Compton, drafted in the sixth round out of South Dakota in April, was the only one of the Redskins’ nine selections to not make the 53-man roster on Friday.

The Redskins also signed receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux, linebacker Darryl Gamble, running back Robert Hughes, tight end Deangelo Peterson and nose tackle Jason Shirley.
Arceneaux played three games for Minnesota last season, Gamble played five games for San Diego, Hughes was in training camp with Tampa Bay, Peterson was in training camp with St. Louis and Shirley has been in the NFL since 2008, appearing in three games with Cincinnati that season and four games with Carolina last year.
