Redskins' Jimmy Moreland: Set to start Sunday
Moreland is expected to serve as Washington's starting slot cornerback against the 49ers on Sunday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Moreland's opportunity comes with Josh Norman (thigh) inactive. If the rookie seventh-round pick is able to show well Week 7, he could earn an increased role on defense going forward.

Redskins' Jimmy Moreland: Heading to DC
The Redskins drafted Moreland in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 227th overall.
Making the jump from James Madison comes Moreland (5-foot-10, 179 pounds), who makes up for his lack of size with physicality and great instincts. He was a finalist for the 2018 Buck Buchanan Award for the top defender in the FCS and ultimately recorded 18 interceptions, including six that were returned for touchdowns, during his collegiate tenure. With the Redskins, Moreland will compete for some sort of role in the secondary, most likely in the slot or in nickel and dime formations.
