Commanders make some roster moves ahead of Week 3

The Washington Commanders are shorthanded along the defensive line ahead of their Week 3 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Defensive tackle Phidarian Mathis was lost for the season two weeks ago, while defensive tackle Daniel Wise and defensive end Casey Toohill will miss Sunday’s game with injuries.

So it’s no surprise that Washington elevated two defensive linemen from the practice squad.

The Commanders brought up defensive tackle Benning Potoa’e and defensive end William Bradley-King for Sunday’s game. Potoa’e was signed to the practice squad earlier this month, while Bradley-King was a seventh-round pick by Washington in 2021. Bradley-King played in three games in 2021, recording 0.5 sacks.

In another move, Washington’s beleaguered secondary could be in more trouble as cornerback William Jackson III was added to the injury report as questionable with a back injury. Jackson hasn’t played particularly well, but losing him would be a difficult blow for the Commanders against the Eagles and their outstanding trio of wide receivers.

Starting defensive end James Smith-Williams is also questionable for Sunday’s game with an abdomen injury.
