Washington places Rob Kelley, Will Compton on IR in flurry of moves”

They placed running back Rob Kelley and linebacker Will Compton on injured reserve Tuesday.

The Redskins also have two other defensive starters on injured reserve: nose tackle Phil Taylor and lineman Jonathan Allen.

Both Kelley and Compton suffered respective injuries during Sunday's 38-30 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

RB Byron Marshall was signed in a corresponding roster move. Kelley aggravated a high ankle sprain and sprained his MCL, while Compton was lost to a season-ending Lisfranc sprain in his foot. Kelley had only carried 62 times for 194 yards with three touchdowns, averaging 3.2 yards per carry. Now in his second season, Kelley was off a rookie campaign in which he compiled 704 yards on 168 touches with six touchdowns on the ground. 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 42 games at the University of OR, the 5-foot-9, 201 pounder recorded more than 3,000 scrimmages yards, as he rushed for 1,877 yards along with tallying 1,293 receiving yards. He has also recorded over 100 receiving yards and a touchdown twice this season.

Perine has recorded 210 rushing yards on 66 carries along with six catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in nine games played. Third-year player Martrell Spaight will step into the middle linebacker role.
