Tashard Choice claimed off waivers by Redskins

On Saturday, the Cowboys made the somewhat surprising decision to waive running back Tashard Choice, just a little over 24 hours before playing the Eagles on Sunday night. On Monday, the Washington Redskins claimed Choice off of waivers.

That the Redskins, at 3-4, were able to claim Choice, as first reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN, means a number of other teams, including Philadelphia, passed on the former Georgia Tech star.

But Washington, shut out Sunday against Buffalo in Toronto, has a clear-cut need for offensive help, and with Tim Hightower out for the year, a clear need at running back. Roy Helu and Ryan Torain combined for 24 rushing yards on 11 carries against the Bills Sunday.

Choice was waived/injured so he's not guaranteed to end up even getting playing time with the 'Skins. He's got a hamstring problem and a shoulder problem and, well, it's entirely possible he won't even pass his physical at his point in time.

But Washington, in a freefall from first place in the NFC East, is so beat-up on offense that they probably don't care.

Halo, what are you talking about???  Fred Davis had 94 yards receiving.  What do you mean he had no catches?  If no now = 8 then you are correct.  People need to do a little research before running their mouth.

LOL Reds*ins LOL

Dumpster diving from the Cowboys is not a good look.   Washington needs to find some O-line help immediately!

Thee Redskins have got to get an offensive line that not only controls the scrimmage line but blows people off of it.  Until that happens, it will not matter who gets put the in the offensive backfield, they'll be on a one-way trip to the injured reserve list.

I guess Reid likes Ronnie Brown too much to replace him just now.  Hah!

I was hoping for another old washed up wr.

Surprised that the skins have not taken a chance on TO and/or Tiki Barber yet. Particularly TO since Moss is out for a few weeks.
