With Ladell Betts suffering a season ending knee injury,the Redskins resigned Marcus Mason to the roster to provide depth behind Rock Cartwright and Quinton Ganther.
Hopefully this move will finally give Mason an opportunity to make a regular season impact as he has never been given much of a chance in meaningful action.
Playoff aspirations all but ended on Sunday against Dallas so it would make sense for Jim Zorn to give his youngsters a shot. Marko Mitchell has been impressive in limited reps while Mason has shown good vision complemented with tough running during his several stints with Washington.
Also, to provide depth at offensive line after Chad Rinehart went on the IR, the 'Skins have brought in guard Paul Fanaika from the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad. Fanaika was a seventh-round pick by the Eagles in April out of Arizona State. He's 6-foot-5 and weights 327 pounds.
Here's his pre-draft bio.
