In a move that may signal Matt Jones will be held out of Sunday's game against the Bengals, the Redskins announced Friday they promoted Mack Brown from the practice squad to the active roster.

To make room for Brown, the team waived recently signed safety Josh Evans.

The NFL's preseason rushing leader has yet to play in a regular season contest, but he could get his chance in London on Sunday. If Jones is out — he experienced knee soreness at practice on Wednesday and said he had issues cutting laterally — Robert Kelley and Chris Thompson will likely share the workload in his absence, though Brown demonstrated in the exhibitions he's capable of contributing (he ran for 149 yards in Tampa Bay on September 1).

Like Jones, Brown is a University of Florida product. He's 25 years old and first entered the league in 2015.
