Just before taking off for their by week, the Redskins made a few roster moves.

As anticipated, they activated long snapper Nick Sundberg from the injured reserve list and waived snapper Justin Snow. Sundberg broke his arm in the season opener in New Orleans and was put on injured reserve with the designation that he would be able to return. Snow was signed in Week 2 to handle the long snapping duties.

The Redskins also made a move at cornerback. They promoted practice squad cornerback D. J. Johnson to the active roster and released David Jones.

Johnson was signed to the practice squad on Oct. 23. He has appeared in 10 NFL games, all of them with the Giants, and has also been with the Bucs and Eagles.

Jones was with the Redskins during training camp and was released during the final cuts. He resigned with the team on Sept. 25 and played in five games.

The team also announced that tackle Jammal Brown, who has been on the PUP list with a hip injury since the start of training camp, has been cleared to practice. The Redskins will have 21 days to decide if they want to put Brown on the active roster or put him on season-ending injured reserve.
