Jay Gruden spoke to reporters today and had more bad injury news. It was reported earlier the RB Rob Kelley had high-ankle and MCL sprains. Gruden said he will miss some time and could go to injured reserve. The Redskins only have two healthy RBs and worked out Daryl Richardson and Ronnie Hillman today.
The Redskins also might need to replace Will Compton, who suffered a Lisfranc injury yesterday. Washington already lost Mason Foster for the year with a shoulder injury. Martrell Spaight will start alongside Zach Brown.

Gruden on inconsistency: For the most part, players have to get ready to play. I have to do a better job of getting them ready to play— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) November 13, 2017
Rookie Samaje Perine will take over as the starting running back. The Redskins would like him to get more yards after contact but coach Jay Gruden said Perine would get more with more carries. https://t.co/X3ZrHpJwUe— John Keim (@john_keim) November 13, 2017
