Redskins to sign kicker Nick Rose, place Dustin Hopkins on IR: reports
The Washington Redskins will sign kicker Nick Rose after placing Dustin Hopkins (hip) on injured reserve, according to multiple reports.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden revealed Monday that Hopkins had an injury to his right hip and the team would bring in other kickers to try out.
The Redskins settled on Rose, but also tried out Mike Nugent,Andrew Franks and Marshall Koehn, per ESPN.
