Busts gonna bust

The Redskins are signing running back Kapri Bibbs after releasing wide receiver Breshad Perriman.

Bibbs was the odd man out in the RB group after the team added Adrian Peterson following Derrius Guice's season-ending ACL injury. Bibbs gets promoted to the main roster after RB Rob Kelley was placed on IR with a toe injury. The Redskins now have 4 RBs on the 53-man roster.

The Redskins have seen enough from WR Breshad Perriman...for now. The former first round pick from the Baltimore Ravens is being released. Pro Football Talk reports he could be brought back in the future.

Perriman was signed four days ago along with WR Michael Floyd as the Redskins are dealing with multiple injuries at the position. Washington already placed three WRs on IR (Robert Davis, Cam Sims, and Trey Quinn). Paul Richardson Jr. (shoulder/knee) and Maurice Harris (concussion) are both listed as questionable this week.

Jay Gruden had indicated that neither Perriman or Floyd would be active this week, and were cheap signings that allowed the team to see where they stand. The Redskins are back down to six WRs with Perriman's release.

UPDATE: Officially official

UPDATE: The Redskins are promoting Kapri Bibbs from the practice squad
