EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -The Washington Redskins signed Sam Hollenbach to the active roster Saturday night, giving the team a third healthy quarterback for its game Sunday against the New York Giants.
Hollenbach, an undrafted rookie from Maryland, was signed to the practice squad Friday. He was with the Redskins during the offseason but was released before the start of training camp.
The Redskins began looking for a third quarterback after Jason Campbell dislocated a kneecap in last week's game against Chicago. Campbell is expected to be sidelined four weeks.
Todd Collins will start Sunday's game against the New York Giants, with Mark Brunell as the backup. Receiver Antwaan Randle El had been practicing during the week as the emergency quarterback.
Collins' start, his first start in 10 years, will come two days after his wife gave birth to the couple's second child. The baby, a boy named Jack, was born Friday night.
To make room for Hollenbach on the roster, the Redskins released receiver Jimmy Farris.
