Washington Redskins Claim Tashard Choice Off Waivers, According To Report

Needing help at running back, the Redskins have claimed Tashard Choice off waivers. Choice was released by the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month.

With only two running backs on the roster due to the injury to Tim Hightower, the Washington Redskins needed to make a move. It appears they finally have done so. The team has claimed former Dallas Cowboys running back Tashard Choice on waivers, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Choice formerly played for the Dallas Cowboys, who released him last week after DeMarco Murray's emergence. He has rushed 28 times for 75 yards, and also has 11 receptions for 71 yards this season. Choice's best season was his rookie year, when he rushed for 472 yards at 5.1 yards per carry. He's slowly tailed off since then.

The move is a mild surprise because many expected the Redskins to simply promote sixth-round rookie Evan Royster from the practice squad to replace Hightower on the roster. Instead, the team has decided to go the free agent route.
