The Redskins have brought back linebacker Bryan Kehl, who was waived by the team during the final roster cuts.

Kehl has been with the Chiefs since the signed him on Oct. 3. The move was announced in a tweet by his agent.

The Redskins liked his play during training camp and in the preseason but he ran into a numbers game and was released. They had an roster opening after linebacker Keenan Robinson went on injured reserve earlier this week. The team had signed Roddrick Muckelroy to fill the spot but that was before they knew Kehl would be available.

According to Adam Caplan of FoxSports.com, the Redskins released linebacker Mario Addison to make room for Kehl. 

Kehl is in his fifth NFL season after being drafted in the fourth round out of BYU by the Giants. He also played for the Rams.
