RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Jarvis Jenkins' suspension is giving defensive end Kedric Golston another chance to start for the Washington Redskins.
Only Santana Moss has been on the Redskins roster longer than Golston, who has been an off-and-on starter and reliable special teams player since he was chosen in the sixth round of the 2006 draft.
Golston signed a three-year deal in March to stay with the Redskins. It's turning out to be a good insurance policy.
The 30-year-old Golston has played in 98 games and started 43 over seven seasons. His most noteworthy highlight probably came when he tackled Minnesota Vikings running back Tony Richardson for a safety in 2007.
Says Golston: ``I understand what I do isn't always sexy.''
