    Smoot is Washington's third cornerback, used primarily in nickel packages with starters DeAngelo Hall and Carlos Rogers. His
    replacement on Sunday is expected to be second-year player Justin Tryon.

    For the Rams, fourth-year defensive end Victor Adeyanju was inactive for the second straight week.
