Washington Activates Cofield, Cuts Jeffcoat

Washington defensive tackle Barry Cofield has been activated from off of the team’s injured reserve list, according to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, who adds (via Twitter) that the club has waived linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat in order to clear an opening on its roster.

Cofield, 30, suffered a high ankle sprain during Washington’s Week 1 contest, and was placed on IR with the designation to return. Assuming the team is ready to insert him back into the starting lineup, he should supplant Chris Baker, who had assumed Cofield’s nose tackle role in his absence.
