Giants signed S Duke Ihenacho, formerly of the Redskins.

Ihenacho didn't generate any free agent interest despite starting 10 games last season. He gives the Giants another option in a secondary with questions opposite Landon Collins. Ihenacho struggled with missed tackles in Washington, but is a plus run stopper.
May 24 - 7:16 PM

Redskins re-signed S Duke Ihenacho to a one-year, $1.67 million contract.

Ihenacho missed most of 2015 with a broken wrist, but is a plus run stopper, and core special teamer. Ideally, he'd be a reserve, but Ihenacho won a starting job in camp last season. His 53-man roster spot is assured.
Wed, Mar 9, 2016 04:45:00 PM

Redskins extended an original-pick tender to restricted free agent S Duke Ihenacho.

A fierce run-support safety, Ihenacho won a starting job in 2015 training camp but suffered a season-ending fractured wrist in mid-September. Ihenacho is also a useful special teamer. His one-year tender is worth $1.67 million.
Mon, Mar 7, 2016 04:25:00 PM

Redskins placed SS Duke Ihenacho on injured reserve with a fractured wrist, ending his season.

Ihenacho needs surgery, and was going to miss a minimum of six weeks. The ex-Bronco won starting duties in camp after missing nearly all of 2014 with a fractured heel. He'll head into 2016 as a 26-year-old restricted free agent who has made four appearances since 2013. Jeron Johnson and Trent Robinson will absorb Ihenacho's snaps.
Tue, Sep 15, 2015 04:07:00 PM

Redskins SS Duke Ihenacho needs surgery for a fractured wrist, and will be sidelined 6-8 weeks.

Ihenacho has been plagued by injuries during his two years in Washington. It's possible he'll be sent to injured reserve. He'll be replaced by some combination of Jeron Johnson and Trent Robinson.
Mon, Sep 14, 2015 01:21:00 PM

Redskins SS Duke Ihenacho was forced from Washington's Week 1 game against the Dolphins with a wrist injury, and will not return.

He's been replaced at strong safety by Trenton Robinson. Ihenacho recorded one tackle before exiting.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 02:02:00 PM

Duke Ihenacho has won the Redskins' starting strong safety job.

He beat out Jeron Johnson, who was signed as a free agent after spending the first four years of his career in Seattle. Ihenacho is a "box" safety who started 14 games for the 2013 Broncos. He missed most of last season with a broken heel.
Fri, Sep 4, 2015 09:17:00 AM

Redskins SS Duke Ihenacho exited the team's third preseason game with a right arm injury.

He is questionable to return. Ihenacho injured his arm making a stop on a running play in the second quarter. Jeron Johnson replaced Ihenacho at strong safety.
Sat, Aug 29, 2015 08:40:00 PM

CSN Washington expects Duke Ihenacho to open the season as the starting strong safety.

Ihenacho has been getting the majority of first-team reps over Jeron Johnson. The Redskins have more invested in Johnson and aren’t expected to name a starter until late in training camp. Dashon Goldson is the starter at free safety.
Wed, Aug 5, 2015 07:15:00 PM

Duke Ihenacho is getting the "first crack" at the Redskins' strong-safety job.

He's competing with Jeron Johnson. Our money has been on Johnson, but Ihenacho took all the first-team reps on Thursday. "We’re going to go out there and let them play," coach Jay Gruden said. "Duke’s done a good job so far, and those guys are going to line up and see what happens."
Thu, Jul 30, 2015 08:28:00 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden says Duke Ihenacho is "in the mix" with Jeron Johnson at strong safety.

Playing on a one-year, $660,000 deal, Ihenacho missed all but three games last season with a fractured heel. Perhaps he's "in the mix" in May, but Johnson is expected to earn the starting job opposite FS Dashon Goldson.
Tue, May 26, 2015 02:07:00 PM

CSN Washington doesn’t consider S Duke Ihenacho a lock for the 53-man roster.

Ihenacho was tendered by the Redskins despite spending all but three games on I.R. last year. With Dashon Goldson and Jeron Johnson locked in as starters, he’s competing with Phillip Thomas, Trenton Robinson, and sixth-rounder Kyshoen Jarrett for backup duties. Ihenacho needs to prove he’s over his health issues to return as Washington’s No. 3 safety.
Sat, May 9, 2015 09:03:00 PM

Redskins re-signed exclusive rights free agent S Duke Ihenacho to a one-year, $660,000 contract.

Ihenacho, 26 in June, played five snaps last season before fracturing his heel in Week 3. A "box" safety, Ihenacho may be a candidate for a real role in 2015 with both FS Ryan Clark and SS Brandon Meriweather free agents.
Wed, Mar 4, 2015 03:47:00 PM

Redskins placed S Duke Ihenacho on injured reserve with a fractured heel, ending his season.

Ihenacho was the Redskins' No. 3 safety behind Brandon Meriweather and Ryan Clark. He also contributed on special teams for Washington.
