Redskins vs. Giants: Sav Rocca To Punt On Sunday, According To Report

According to Redskins beat writer John Keim, punter Sav Rocca will be able to punt in Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Keim sent out the following tweet on Saturday:

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.
