The Redskins made some roster moves on Saturday ahead of Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Green Bay Packers, releasing wide receiver Breshad Perriman and signing running back Kapri Bibbs from the practice squad. 

Washington signed Perriman, a former first-round pick of the Ravens, on Monday along with Michael Floyd. But with seven wide receivers on the 53-man roster, someone was always going to be the odd man out, and Perriman got the short end of the stick. 

Bibbs joined the practice squad after Washington released him on cutdown day, and now has a shot to make the active roster for the Green Bay game. Given his special teams abilities and the injuries to Trey Quinn, Cam Sims and Troy Apke, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him on the field Sunday.
