Cofield, Hankerson active for Redskins-Buccaneers

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) Barry Cofield and Leonard Hankerson are suiting up again for the Washington Redskins.

Cofield and Hankerson are active for the first time this season Sunday as the Redskins host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Nose tackle Cofield was activated from short-term injured reserve last week after recovering from ankle and groin injuries. Receiver Hankerson came off the physically unable to perform list after rehabbing from knee surgery.

Washington tight end Logan Paulsen is active despite foot and hamstring injuries that limited him in practice.

Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin misses a third straight game with a right ankle injury. Cornerback Alterraun Verner sits out his second in a row with an ailing hamstring, and tight end Luke Stocker misses his second consecutive game with a hip injury.
