For Immediate Release

December 11, 2007


Ashburn, VA – The Washington Redskins announce today that they have signed quarterback Jason Fife to their practice squad.

Fife (6-4, 225) was last with the New Orleans Saints and was released prior to the start of the regular season. He split time in 2006 on the Saints active roster and practice squad. Fife played college football at Oregon and finished his career with the Ducks throwing for 3,702 yards and 30 touchdowns. He originally signed as a rookie free agent with Detroit in 2004 and has also spent time with the Vikings organization.

In addition, the Redskins announce today that they have released LB Tyson Smith from the practice squad.

The Skins have no immediate plans to put Jason Campbell on IR for now, but they did sign QB Jason Fife, who played at Oregon, to the practice squad (LB Tyson Smith was released from the practice squad).

Campbell said he has a sprained MCL as well as the dislocated left knee cap, and that he figures he is out probably four weeks at least, but will not know for sure until another week, when they evaluate the degree of swelling. Jason said no one in the organization had clarified specifically whether or not he would be put on IR, but he was holding out hope of getting a chance to play in the playoffs.

Don't know anything about him. Thoughts???

Does this mean JC is done officially?

The rumor (apparently from a reliable source) is that JC's out for 4 weeks. So I guess it depends on if we make the playoffs and if we make the playoffs with good performance from Collins and not just riding on Portis's back, then I doubt Jason will be back until next year.:2cents:

What ever happened to Palmer?

Dolphins practice Squad I think. I'm pretty sure the only way we could get him back is to sign him to our active roster. That's not going to happen. As long as the playoffs are a possibility, JC will remain on the roster.

I found his 2003 stats at Oregon. He lit it up the first half and won 6 in a row and then lost 6 of the next 7. Injury? Tougher schedule? Who knows? :whoknows:

They are definitely using him to practice like Eli, lol. I mean, he has the height, and the fold-down-the-stretch attitude like ShEli, so why not?
