Posted Dec 5, 2012

The Redskins announced today that they have promoted OT Tom Compton to their active roster from the team’s practice squad.

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have promoted tackle Tom Compton to their active roster from the team’s practice squad.

The team also signed defensive back Korey Lindsey and linebacker Kourtnei Brown to the team’s practice squad.

Compton (6-5, 308) was originally drafted by the Redskins out of South Dakota in the sixth round (193rd overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Lindsey (5-10, 194) was originally drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals out of Southern Illinois in the seventh round (No. 207 overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft.

He was waived by the Bengals on Sept. 3, 2011, before being claimed off waivers on Sept. 5 by the Arizona Cardinals.

In 2011, Lindsey was inactive for Weeks 1-2 and 4 with Arizona and did not play in Week 3. He was released from the Cardinals’ active roster on Oct. 5, before re- signed to the team’s practice squad on the same day.

He was waived by the Cardinals on May 30, 2012, before being claimed off waivers by Indianapolis Colts a day later.

Lindsey appeared in three preseason games with the Colts in 2012 and totaled six tackles (four solo).

He was placed on the Colt’s Reserve/Injured list on Aug. 31, before being waived injured by the team on Sept. 25, 2012. Lindsey signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars’ practice squad on Nov. 14, before being released a day later.

Lindsey, 23, attended Southern Illinois, where he appeared in 50 games with 36 starts and helped lead the team to two FCS postseason berths.

He finished his collegiate career with 14 interceptions, which ranks third in school history. Lindsey twice earned All-America honors from the Associated Press and NFL Draft Report.

Lindsey was born on Feb. 3, 1989. He attended Scotlandville Magnet H.S. in Baton Rouge, La., where he earned all-district honors twice and was a two-time All-Metro Baton Rouge first-team choice.

Brown (6-6, 255) originally signed with the San Francisco 49ers as a college free agent on May 4, 2012, before being released on Aug. 27.

Brown, 24, attended Clemson from 2007-11, where he compiled 75 tackles (10 for a loss), three sacks and one interception.

Brown was born on May 17, 1988, and attended Victory Christian Center H.S. in Charlotte, N.C.
