Redskins put RB Rob Kelley, LB Will Compton on IR

Redskins lose Kelley Compton for season

Kelley was hurt pretty much from the jump this season, injuring his ribs before spraining his ankle.

Washington running back Rob Kelley suffered a high ankle sprain and sprained MCL in Week 10, and coach Jay Gruden said that placing him on injured reserve is a possibility.

Both injuries occurred during the loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Perine doesn't have great pass-game skills and is averaging only 3.2 yards on 66 carries with a long gain of 12, but he should essentially be locked in for double-digit touches each week for as long as Kelley's unavailable. The Redskins will move forward with Chris Thompson as their lead back and Samaje Perine trying to do some heavy lifting between the tackles.

In corresponding moves, the team signed free agent defensive lineman Caraun Reid along with running back Byron Marshall off the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad. Foster's season ended last month because of a separated shoulder.

Compton, meanwhile, is being placed on Injured Reserve after suffering a Lisfranc sprain against the Vikings. Martrell Spaight will take over for Compton. Matt Ioannidis, who has started at tackle in their nickel defense, has missed the last two games with a fractured left hand.
