Redskins Roster Moves: Rob Kelley goes to IR

New, comments

Down goes another one

NFL: Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins finally made the signings of former 1st round WRs Breshad Perriman and Michael Floyd official. The Redskins have been hit hard at the bottom of their WR depth chart early this year. Robert Davis, Cam Sims, and Trey Quinn are all on IR.

RB has also been hammered with injuries. Rob Kelley joins Derrius Guice and Byron Marshall on IR. Jay Gruden said Kelley could miss at least 4 weeks with a toe injury suffered last week, and might need surgery. The team decided to put him on IR instead of keeping him on the roster, and can bring him back 8 weeks from now if he is healthy and needed.

The Redskins still have Samaje Perine, who has been the inactive 4th RB the first two weeks of the season. They akso have Kapri Bibbs available on the practice squad. Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson remain the top options for Washington going forward.

The Redskins also made some moves on the practice squad. WR Jehu Chesson and T Chris Durant were signed to the 10-man squad. Chesson was signed to the 53-man roster and was active this week, but drops back down after the Perrimsn and Floyd signings. The Redskins akso waived DB Jeremy Reaves and WR Teo Redding.
