Baker will not receive a suspension for his hit on Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in Sunday's loss, Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports.

The league office determined that although Baker's hit might have looked like an apparent cheap shot, it wasn't illegal by the letter of the law, as the defensive lineman avoided Foles' head and didn't lead with his helmet. Baker will be cleared to start Thursday's showdown with the Giants, assuming the ankle injury he sustained over the weekend doesn't prove too uncomfortable during practices.

Redskins signed TE Chris Baker, formerly of the Seahawks.

Baker had been a blocking specialist the past two seasons with New England and Seattle. His receiving skills are superior to those of Logan Paulsen, but he's been out of the league all season. We're not expecting a fantasy impact from either of the Redskins tight ends. Hold off even in deeper leagues.

It's not hard to imagine that the (usually) 330-pound Baker showed up to camp out of shape. Baker appeared for just seven snaps on defense last season.
