Hamilton finished his rookie season with 28 tackles (19 solo), 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games.
Hamilton got the vast majority of his playing time in December, starting the final four games of the season while Zach Brown saw his own role reduced. Team tackle leader Mason Foster is expected back in 2019, but there should be a nice opportunity for Hamilton to earn a starting job with Brown shaping up as a likely cap casualty. The 2018 sixth-round pick may need to compete with 2017 seventh-round pick Josh Harvey-Clemons, who has strictly been used on passing downs.

Hamilton strained his shoulder in Sunday's game against the Giants, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Hamilton drew the start over Zach Brown on Sunday and totaled a team-high eight tackles before exiting with his injury. He had seen just nine defensive snaps prior to Sunday, and he performed fairly well in his starting debut. It's unclear if the strain will sideline him in Week 15, or if he'll be able to play through the injury. He should be considered questionable for the time being.
Hamilton is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants with a shoulder injury.
Hamilton received the designation shortly after halftime and the severity of the injury remains unclear. The rookie sixth-round pick has played only nine defensive snaps entering Sunday's game.
