RICHMOND—Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher passed his physical and has been removed from the physically unable to perform list, the team announced.
Hatcher joined his teammates for practice on Saturday.
One of the Redskins' major free agent additions this offseason, Hatcher had his left knee scoped by Dr. James Andrews in late June. The 32-year-old missed veteran minicamp and was sidelined for the first two-plus weeks of training camp while he rehabbed.
The Redskins anticipate that Hatcher will make his preseason debut Aug. 23 against the Ravens, according to Coach Jay Gruden.
