Normally practice squad moves dont garner much attention, but on Tuesday the Redskins made a patriotic addition to their squad. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Redskins have added Navy grad and former New England Patriots fullback Eric Kettani to their practice squad.
Kettani played at Navy from 2005-2008, where he rushed for more than 2,000 yards. Kettani was then signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent after the 2009 NFL Draft. After being placed on the militaryreserve list, Kettani was added to the Patriots practice squad last year. However soon after joining the practice squad, Kettani was called to active duty in the Navy and reported to the USS Klakring in Jacksonville, Florida.
After a lengthy appeal process, Kettani was finally cleared in April to pursue a football career on a permanent basis. While he made the initial Patriots practice squad, he was released last week in favor of fullback James Develin.
With Chris Cooleys release and Darrel Young as the only fullback on the Redskins active roster, the team looks to be bringing in the 25-year-old Kettani to the mix. It seems fitting that today on 911, the Redskins have added a real patriot.
In a thriller in Foxboro, the Patriots handed Kansas City its first loss of the season.
It wasn't pretty but the Rams slipped past the Broncos to remain the lone unbeaten in the NFL.
Remember when the Lions beat New England on Sunday Night Football and folks were ready to bury the Patriots? Yeah... how did that 'hot take' work out?
Will the real Redskins please stand up? A win over the Panthers moved the Skins up three spots. Give the Redskins this, they are consistently unpredictable.
The Ravens are on the rise and Marcus Mariota is happy the Titans won't have to play Baltimore again.
So the Cowboys have an offense now? Or does Jacksonville not have an elite defense anymore?
And the Bears let Brock Osweiler throw for 380 yards. Yes. You read that correct. 380 yards.
How far will the Bears drop because of that dreadful defensive performance?
The Kerrigan family is about to make a big-time addition to its roster.

"How did dey gett such a smawl jerzey for da baby alreddy?" Franklin the other bulldog added.
This is all very wonderful.
Come next March, the world is about to get a little precious-er.
