Wide receiver Brian Quick is coming back to the Washington Redskins in light of two Week 1 injuries at that position.
Quick’s sports agency, Sports Trust Advisors, tweeted Tuesday that Quick will sign with the Redskins. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and the team has yet to confirm the transaction.
Quick, 29, played for the Redskins last season but did not make their final 53-man roster earlier this month. Behind Josh Doctson, Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson Jr., the Redskins went with Maurice Harris and rookies Trey Quinn and Cam Sims. Washington also eschewed Quick for the practice squad in favor of rookie Simmie Cobbs.
But Quinn and Sims each suffered high-ankle sprains Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, and Maurice Harris was already out as he recovers from a concussion, leaving Washington with three healthy receivers.
Quick played 11 games in 2017, including one start, and caught six passes for 76 yards. He spent his first five NFL seasons with the Rams.
