Doug Worthington joins Redskins' active roster

By Jay Skurski

St. Francis graduate Doug Worthington was called up to the Washington Redskins' active roster Tuesday from the practice squad following the season-ending injuries to linebacker Brian Orakpo and defensive end Adam Carriker over the weekend.

Worthington was a seventh-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2010. He spent the final few weeks of last year on Washington's active roster, but did not appear in a game.

"At 6-5 and 311 pounds, he demonstrated power playing against reserves during the preseason. Consistency with his leverage is a main focus," Washington Times reporter Rich Campbell writes about Worthington.

I had a chance to talk to Worthington when the Redskins visited the Bills in a preseason game last month.
