The Washington Football Team has elevated rookie RB Javon Leake off the practice squad onto the 53-man roster ahead of Week 14’s game vs. the 49ers.
The former Maryland product was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Giants in the Summer, but was released ahead of the regular season. He latched on with Washington in November, and now gets a shot on Sunday with Antonio Gibson nursing a turf toe injury. Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic will likely see the bulk of the snaps at running back, but maybe the team works Leake in there as well.
