Powe was released by Washington on Saturday. Powe was sidelined the majority of the preseason due to heart arrhythmia, but was able to make a return to the field for the final week of the preseason. However, it appears he missed too much time to secure a spot on the 53-man roster. He could find his way onto another team, if his heart condition doesn't deter teams from taking a chance on him.
Powe (heart arrhythmia) is likely going to miss another few weeks, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports. Powe was diagnosed with a heart arrhythmia at the start of August and was originally given a 7-to-10 day timeline for a return. However, it appears they're going to play it safe with the issue and continue to hold him out for another couple of weeks. Powe could be a contributor at nose tackle due to the Redskins' lack of depth, but he'll need to get his health issues in check prior to getting back on the field.
Powe (heart arrhythmia) will be out 7-10 days, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. Powe's condition does not appear to be extreme, and he will likely return to practice before Washington's first preseason game on Aug. 11. With the Redskins thin at defensive tackle, Powe's health will be something to watch over the next week.
Powe was absent from Tuesday's training camp session due to illness, Brian McNally of CBS reports. The illness is not considered serious and he should return to practice within the next couple days.
The Redskins signed free agent nose tackle Jerrell Powe on Monday, per the NFL's transactions report. Powe played for Houston last season and Kansas City the three years prior. Powe had 10 tackles and a pass defense last season.
