There are a couple of dozen players who are on the bubble when it comes to making the Redskins’ 53-man roster. Here’s a look at some of those who helped themselves against the Bills and a few who hurt their cases for making the final cut.
Adam Gettis—Playing with the first team at right guard, he helped keep RG3 from being touched and he made some nice blocks running interference for Evan Royster on a few of his runs.
Bryan Kehl—There was an opening created for a reserve middle linebacker when Jonathan Goff was lost for the season with a torn ACL and Kehl is trying to take advantage of it. He had six tackles, two for a loss, with a sack and a quarterback hit.
Chris Wilson—If he’s going to make it at outside linebacker, he’ll have to steal a spot from someone who was on the team last year. His five tackles, including one for a loss, gave him a good start.
Aldrick Robinson—Yes, his two catches for 28 yards came in the fourth quarter against players who may never see and regular season NFL game. He still has a lot of work to do but he needed something good to happen after being inconsistent in practice.
Brandon Banks—The bad news is that he looked too small to compete at NFL wide receiver in extensive playing time with nine passes being thrown his way. The good news is that he has not looked too small in practice and that will buy him some more opportunities. But at some point he has to get it done in a game.
Kevin Barnes—No negative plays but not much on the plus side either except for one pass defense. The Redskins are looking for him to step up and earn a fourth season with the team and he hasn’t done that yet.
