Redskins sign undrafted rookie ILB Gary Johnson to combat injuries

It was the Reuben Foster injury that first made the Washington Redskins short on inside linebacker depth, and since then, the position has been open for competition.

Shaun Dion Hamilton and Jon Bostic constituted the first linebacker duo on the field together. Then Hamilton had a minor cartilage tear in Week 1 and was designated as inactive in Week 2, and Josh Harvey-Clemons took his place.

Harvey-Clemons played very well in Hamilton’s absence, but now, per NBC Sports Mid-Atlantic’s J.P. Finlay, Harvey-Clemons is dealing with a potential concussion.
