The Washington Redskins officially placed RB Keith Marshall on injured reserve Tuesday after he cleared waivers.
Marshall, unfortunately, suffered a torn right patella tendon during Saturday’s practice and will miss the 2017 season, so it shouldn’t come as a big surprise to see him end up on the team’s injured reserve list.
Marshall, 23, is a former seventh-round pick of the Redskins back in 2016. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $2.40 million contract and set to make base salaries of $450,000 and $540,000 over the next two years of the agreement.
The Redskins waived him with an injury designation Monday.
In 2016, Marshall missed the entire season with an elbow injury, so this is clearly very disappointing start to his career.
