Redskins Sign Christine Michael To Practice Squad


The Washington Redskins on Thursday announced the signing of running back Christine Michael to the practice squad. Michael most recently played for the Dallas Cowboys.

The Redskins have added another former player that was brought into the NFL by Scot McCloughan, as the team announced on Thursday that they have signed 2013 second-round pick 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.

He would record 15 carries for 51 yards over five games before being released earlier this week.
