Daniels rushed for a team-high 23 yards on five carries and was targeted one time in the passing game Friday against the Raiders.
Daniels may still face an uphill battle to secure a 53-man roster spot out of training camp, but he displayed a little bit of his ability during Thursday's preseason contest. He will likely have one more opportunity to showcase his ability next Thursday against the Chiefs before cuts are due.
Daniels will receive a chance to make a name for himself in the Packers' backfield after Akeem Judd called it quits, but he will have a shortened training camp to do so. Daniels' best bet at earning a spot likely comes as a special teams contributor.
Daniels was waived by Washington on Thursday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.
Daniels appeared in four games for the Redskins as a rookie in 2017, totaling just 14 yards on three carries. He isn't likely to get much of a role with whichever club he catches on with, be he could hang on as a backup, special teams player, or practice squad member.
Daniels fractured his hand at practice Thursday and was lost for the season. The 22-year-old is the fifth Washington running back to land on injured reserve this season. The Redskins signed Kenny Hilliard to the 53-man roster to provide additional depth out of the backfield.
Daniels fractured his hand during Thursday's practice and will miss the rest of the season, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
With starting running back Samaje Perine listed as questionable with a groin injury, Daniels might have landed in a key role for Sunday's game against the Broncos if he hadn't injured his hand. The undrafted rookie has plenty of time to get healthy for the start of the offseason program, but there's no guarantee the Redskins even keep him around that long. The team already has four running backs on injured reserve, led by Chris Thompson (leg) and Rob Kelley (ankle).
