Ross was waived by the Redskins on Thursday.
With Dashaun Phillips being signed to the active roster Thursday, Ross was released in order to clear a spot on the 53-man roster. Ross recorded just one reception for eight yards in five games with the Redskins this season. That said, Ross' abilities in the return game could make him a targeted commodity among teams looking for late-season special teams help.
Ross earned himself a spot on the 53-man roster thanks in part to his versatility and ability to play multiple positions. He may not see many targets in the passing game but could rack up kick return yards, making him a deep option in leagues that award such stats.
Ross snagged two receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 20-13 preseason win over the Buccaneers.
Ross made a push for a spot on the 53-man roster on Wednesday night, scoring one of Washington's two touchdowns. The wideout finds himself on the roster bubble but a spot may emerge, with Josh Doctson (Achilles) beginning the season on the PUP list and Jamison Crowder (knee) not at full health.
Ross hauled in one reception for five yards in Friday's preseason win over the Bills.
Ross had a less-than-noteworthy performance on Friday night, as he looks to solidify a spot on the final 53-man roster. He'll likely receive more reps in the preseason finale next Thursday as head coach Jay Gruden has already ruled out the starters. Look for Ross to line up alongside Ryan Grant and Maurice Harris with Josh Doctson (Achilles) and Jamison Crowder (knee) both nursing injuries.
