The Redskins made it official and have activated RB Byron Marshall from IR. He is the second player to be activated this week, WR Trey Quinn was the first to return. The Redskins waived WR Brian Quick for the corresponding roster move.
Marshall said earlier this week that he has been healthy and ready to go for over a month. The Redskins now have 5 RBs on the roster, but two of them(Chris Thompson and Samaje Perine) have been ruled out this week. Thompson has been dealing with rib injuries that have caused him to miss several games. Perine was injured in practice on Thursday.
The Redskins will continue to feature Adrian Peterson who says he is feeling better after suffering shoulder, ankle, and knee injuries earlier in the season.
“I’m feeling good,” Peterson said Wednesday. “Last week I actually started feeling all the way healthy. My shoulder, I’m back to bench pressing. I haven’t did that in three weeks. I’m back to the normal things I was able to do. The ankle is feeling good. The body feels refreshed. It was a grind the first eight weeks and here now, as I stand in front of you guys, my body is feeling amazing.”
