LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – After the Washington Redskins finalized their initial 53-man roster on Saturday, they used Sunday to add players to the practice squad and claim players off the waiver wire.

Wide Receiver: Cam Sims, Jehu Chesson
Running Back: Craig Reynolds
Tight End: J.P. Holtz
Cornerback: Adonis Alexander
Safety: Jeremy Reaves
Defensive Tackle: Ryan Bee
Tackle: Timon Parris
Linebacker: Darrell Williams
Linebacker Jordan Brailford and running back Shaun Wilson were placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
The Redskins open their season in Philadelphia on September 8th, when they face the Eagles in a 1:00 p.m. matchup.
