Ok, can definitely confirm that sav rocca is ok and will punt Sunday, team source says. #redskins— John Keim (@john_keim) October 20, 2012
The 38 year-old punter had been having problems with his right knee, prompting the Redskins to bring in three free-agent punters, including former Philadelphia Eagles punter Chas Henry on Friday. The team did not make any signings, so Rocca will be their only punter on the roster Sunday.
Rocca has been averaging 44.6 yards per punt this season, but only has a net average of 37.3 yards per punt. The punter has downed nine balls inside the 20-yard line through six games. Rocca also serves as the team's holder on field goals and extra points, and is expected to fulfill that role as well.
