Washington was signed off of the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad. The 6-foot-4, 303-pound defensive lineman entered the NFL as a third-round pick by the Buffalo Bills in the 2016 NFL Draft. Washington had 56 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 31 games for the Bills, before being waived on Sept. 11. He signed with the Cowboys' practice squad on Sept. 18. Washington is a Cincinnati native and attended Taft High School before playing at Ohio State.

Glasgow suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter of the Bengals' loss to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday in Charlotte. He had 11 tackles in the Bengals' three games this season.
