ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins have activated nose tackle Barry Cofield from short-term injured reserve.
The team announced the move Tuesday.
Cofield suffered a high right ankle sprain in the Week 1 loss to the Houston Texans and was also dealing with a nagging groin injury. He resumed practicing three weeks ago.
To make room for Cofield, the Redskins waived linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat.
