The Redskins announced they have placed their 21st player on injured reserve for the season. Reserve offensive lineman Austin Howard has been placed on IR with a pectoral injury. In a corresponding roster move, the Redskins have signed T Timon Parris from the practice squad.
Washington needed to add another tackle because #1 back OT Ty Nsekhe was ruled out for tomorrow’s game in Tennessee against the Titans with a knee injury. The Redskins injury problems on the offensive line continue as they will need to shuffle players again. Nsekhe was playing LG, but Tony Bergstrom practiced this week, and could make his return to the lineup.
The Redskins also ruled out TE Vernon Davis and WR Maurice Harris. Both players are in the concussion protocol, and could not be cleared in time to travel with the team. Washington is also missing TE Jordan Reed for tomorrow’s game so Jeremy Sprinkle will get the start with Matt Flanagan backing him up. Josh Doctson is also questionable after having back spasms following Wednesday’s practice. Josh Johnson is going to be missing a lot of his weapons this week.
