Redskins Ink Former Cowboys RB Christine Michael

The Redskins announced today they have signed running back Christine Michael to their practice squad.

In a corresponding move, the team has released practice squad running back Mack Brown.

Michael played collegiately at Texas A&M, where he rushed for 2,791 yards and 34 touchdowns while also catching 44 passes for 323 yards with an additional receiving touchdown during the course of 40 appearances.

His 34 rushing touchdowns were tied for the fifth-most in school history.

The 5-foot-10, 221 pounder was selected by the Seahawks with the 62nd overall pick in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

He would appear in four games as a rookie, recording 18 carries for 79 yards.

During the 2014 season, Michael played in 10 games, recording 34 carries for 175 yards. In Week 10 against the New York Giants, Michael ran for a career-high 71 yards on just four carries.

On Sept. 6, 2015, Michael was traded to the Dallas Cowboys.

After being inactive for the first three games of the season, Michael got his first action with the Cowboys in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints.

    I can’t hang this one on the coaching. 44-16………..five turns leading directly to points………….players have to execute, and they didn’t.

    I’ll excuse this sloppy performance to growing pains and not coaching, but I don’t recall JOE GIBBS having this sort of embarressing performance. Which is what yesterday’s “play” was.

    BEN KOTWICKA’s bunch are excelling this season now that DUSTIN HOPKINS is in the fold, one slip at the outset of yesterday’s game notwitstanding. ANDRE ROBERTS look to have young legs again, but his totally uneven play has landed him out of the line-up as a receiver. Barring injuries, I don’t expect to see him enter the starting line-up ever again.

    Three returns for TD’s is excellent. And now we seem to be stopping punt and KO returners with regularity.

    But the O-line is obviously missing LAUVEO and ‘STEIGER.

    LONG looked good between WILLIAMS and LICHTENSTEIGER, but not so much with LeRIBEUS at center.

    As I’ve said here before, McCLOUGHAN’s job is not quite finished along the offensive front. It looks to me like two replacements for LeRIBEUS and COMPTON are needed from next year’s draft or FA’s. I’m sanguine of ‘STEIGER’s continued play going forward into 2016 as well, but he’s at least servicable as a back-up for 2016. He should be paid accordingly.

    The D-line has improved slightly, but is nowhere near to the level needed to lift this team out of mediocrity. PAEA seems to have found his groove, but BAKER has taken a step back. And ‘pot-roast’s migrains are worriesome. GOLSTON played pretty well yesterday, but overall this season, I would replace him for next year. HATCH had an excellent day.

    The REDSKINS continue to miss JUNIOR GALLETT, and I for one can’t wait to see his return, and HOUSTON BATES to replace either JACKSON JEFFCOAT, or TRENT MURPHY on the outside.

    Inside, WIL COMPTON is excellent and becoming better at the same time. The return of MARTRELL SPAIGHT will solidify the ILB position for 2016. PERRY RILEY can be effective in spots, but not in coverage. He should no longer be a starter. Unfortunately, KEENAN ROBINSON has been slowed to a crawl by his injuries which will not improve this season I fear.

    CULLIVER, BLACKMON, and especially BREELAND look better and better at the corners.

    JOHNSON in and ROBINSON out is a good thing… least for now. IHENACHO’s return is needed. GOLSTON is better, but a significant upgrade back there is needed for 2016. EVERETT DESHAZOR is not the answer for the future.

      KYSHOEN JARRETT may be a difference-maker by the end of the 2016 season. DeANGELO HALL at safety for the next two seasons may be in the cards, then a fond farewell.

    Overall good win over a mediocre team – GIANTS.

    QB had a solid game. The Kid’s growing up.

    Running game got a bit of traction, but is still lagging.

    Receivers held onto the ball once it was in their possession. GARCON made some tough catches when they were needed. REED caught the one that decided the game. And JACKSON did what he does best, catch and run 63 yards for a TD.

    GIANTS do not have a dominant d-line, thank goodness.

    Our d-line shined against a beat-up patchwork offen’seive’ line.


    KERRIGAN was exceptional, and MURPHY was solid. I saw RILEY defense a pass play or two. Good for him. WIL COMPTON caught in space once, but otherwise a solid game.

    D-backs played excellent ball. PERRY FEWELL’s group deserve especial praise this morning despite D-HALL’s two penalties. JARRETT and BREELAND are playing at a high level – BREELAND pretty consistantly.

    Other than the blocked punt, the ‘teams’ play was solid. KOTWICKA’s group did good.
