In a move that will surprise no one, the Redskins have placed WR Paul Richardson Jr. on injured reserve due to a lingering hamstring injury. This is the 2nd straight year he's ended the season on IR.
Richardson missed 3 of the last 4 games. His 2019 season ends with 28 receptions for 245 yards and 2 TDs in 6 starts. In 2018 he played in 7 games, starting 4, and had 20 receptions for 262 yards and 2 TDs.
Richardson was an overpriced free agent signing two years ago that seemed like a high-risk acquisition. He was given a 5 year, $40 million deal with half of it guaranteed. If the Redskins move on next year they will save $2.5 million and have a $6 million dead cap hit.
In a corresponding roster move the Redskins have signed offensive tackle Timon Parris from the practice squad. Donald Penn is listed on this week's injury report with knee/back injuries, and Morgan Moses shows up with a toe injury. Both practiced fully yesterday, and should be good to go against the Eagles tomorrow.
