Francis previously spent a week with the Redskins in October, but didn't appear in a game. His chances of suiting up will be higher this time around with the Redskins playing their next game Thursday against the Giants and perhaps not having fellow defensive lineman Terrell McClain (toe) available for the short week.
Francis was waived by the Redskins on Wednesday, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.
Francis spent less than a week on the Redskins' roster after being signed as defensive line depth Oct. 19. Former Ravens offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom takes the 27-year-old's spot on the 53-man roster.
Francis last played for Washington but was waived in December 2016. With Jonathan Allen headed to injured reserve with a Lisfranc injury, Francis will look to add depth to the Redskins' defensive line.
