With cornerback Chris Culliver suspended this week, Washington needed to add some depth to its secondary.

But in making the spot, they left themselves thinner in another part of it.

The team announced they had signed veteran cornerback Will Blackmon, creating the roster spot by placing safety Duke Ihenacho on injured reserve.

Ihenacho suffered a broken wrist in Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins, and won’t return this year.

They also added cornerback Dashaun Phillips to their practice squad, releasing fullback Ray Agnew.
