Redskins Place RB Rob Kelley & LB Will Compton On IR, Sign DT Caraun Reid


The Washington Redskins announced Tuesday that they’ve officially placed RB Rob Kelley and LB Will Compton on injured reserve and signed DT Caraun Reid to a contract.

Kelley, 25, wound up signing on with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Tulane back in 2016. He’s currently in the second year of his three-year, $1.62 million contract and set to make base salaries of $540,000 and $630,000 over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Kelley appeared in seven games for the Redskins and rushed for 194 yards on 62 carries to go along with four receptions for 18 yards receiving and three total touchdowns.

Reid, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Lions back in 2014. He lasted just over two years in Detroit before he was waived at the start of the 2016 season and later claimed off of waivers by the Chargers.

Unfortunately, Reid suffered a season-ending ACL tear last year and was placed on injured reserve. The Chargers elected to cut him loose coming out of the preseason as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

Reid has a brief stint with the Lions this season.

In 2017, Reid has appeared in one game for the Lions but did not record a statistic.
