The Washington Redskins have officially placed Vernon Davis on injured reserve, ending his 2019 season. Davis hasn't played since Week 4 when he suffered a concussion. He has been in the NFL's concussion protocol since then. Coaches have been hopeful that he could return, but he had to finally be shut down today.

Davis has suffered 5 known concussions over his 14 year NFL career. His last reported concussion happened at the end of last season, and caused Davis to miss the final two games.

Vernon Davis is in the final year of his contract with the Redskins, and this could be his last year in Washington. Davis is 36 years old, and this could also lead to his retirement.

The Redskins are signing DE Ryan Bee from the practice squad. Bee was a preseason hype player this year making several big plays. Daron Payne hasn't practiced all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions. Tim Settle missed last week's game with a hamstring injury, but has practiced fully the last two days and should be good to go Sunday.
