ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Kicker Michael Husted signed a one-year contract with Washington on Monday, hours before the Redskins' played the Dallas Cowboys.

Husted replaces Brett Conway, who aggravated a quad muscle in his right led during practice Thursday — the same injury that caused him to miss nearly all of training camp.

Husted was in camp with the Chicago Bears before being released last month. The seven-year-veteran made 20 of 31 field goals and all 30 extra point attempts for Oakland last season. He also previously played for Tampa Bay.

Conway finished second in the NFC in scoring last season with 115 points and is 3-for-3 on both field goals and conversions this season.

To make room for Husted, Washington released wide receiver Derrius Thompson.
