Redskins placed RB Rob Kelley (high-ankle sprain, sprained MCL) on injured reserve, ending his season.
RB Byron Marshall was signed in a corresponding roster move. Kelley was hurt pretty much from the jump this season, injuring his ribs before spraining his ankle. He aggravated the ankle in Week 10 while picking up a knee sprain. All the injuries are not good news for a player who wasn't exactly the most dynamic in the first place. Kelley has helped out on early downs the past two seasons after going undrafted in 2016, but there's no guarantee he'll crack the 53-man roster next summer. The Redskins will move forward with Chris Thompson as their lead back and Samaje Perine trying to do some heavy lifting between the tackles. Perine has been ineffective so far this season.

ESPN reports "there remains a gap" between fourth-round RB Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley.

This is nothing coach Jay Gruden hasn't already told us, but Keim reports Perine is struggling in pass protection. The coaching staff also apparently believes he's "still thinking too much when running the ball, and learning when to juke a guy vs. just run over him." Perine could eventually unseat Kelley, but it sounds like sophomore Kelley is going to have more rope than expected as starter.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler doesn't believe fourth-rounder Samaje Perine is going to push Rob Kelley for the starting job "anytime soon."

That's been pretty evident for weeks now, and Perine didn't do anything to close the gap in Thursday's preseason opener by fumbling the ball, dropping a third-down pass, and getting crossed up in a blitz pickup. Fumbling and pass protection have been ongoing issues for Perine all camp. Kelley is miles ahead in this battle.
