On the eve of Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals (6-7), the Washington Redskins activated kicker Dustin Hopkins from injured reserve and waived his replacement, Nick Rose. Hopkins, 27, a fourth-year player out of Florida State, was signed by the Redskins in September 2015. He was placed on injured reserve following the Oct. 15 victory over San Francisco with a right hip injury. He had made 9 of 11 field goal attempts (81.8 percent) and 12 of 13 extra points. His career field goal accuracy mark is 84 percent. Rose, 23, a first-year player out of Texas, had kicked in the past eight games in Hopkins’s stead.
