Redskins' Keith Marshall: Says he's healthy and ready to compete
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marshall (elbow) said he is healthy and ready to compete for a roster spot, the Redskins' official website reports

A top recruit whose college career was marred by knee injuries, Marshall pushed his way into the sixth round of last year's draft after leading all running backs at the NFL Scouting Combine in both the 40-yard dash (4.31) and bench press (25 rep). He seemingly had a shot to earn a role in a shaky Washington backfield before he suffered a season-ending elbow injury in the team's third preseason game. Undrafted rookie Robert Kelly eventually seized the lead job from Matt Jones, with Chris Thompson doing his usual strong work on passing downs. Marshall will thus be left to compete with Jones, Mack Brown and at least one rookie for what likely will be one or two roster spots. Depending on what the Redskins do in the upcoming draft, Marshall could find himself on the outside looking in, though his freakish athleticism would seemingly at least make him a good candidate for the practice squad.

Redskins' Keith Marshall: May have to fight for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marshall (elbow) may end up competing with Mack Brown for the fourth spot on the depth chart, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson are locked in as contributors, while the team seemingly wants to give 2016 bust Matt Jones another shot. Such a scenario would leave Marshall on the outside looking in, even though there was some buzz surrounding him last season -- mostly due to his fantastic measurables. The 2016 seventh-round pick missed his entire rookie year with an elbow injury, though his absence largely may have stemmed from the team's desire to stash him on injured reserve. It's also possible the Redskins will actively address the running back position during the upcoming draft, which would further complicate Marshall's path to making the roster. All that said, Marshall could climb up a somewhat shaky depth chart if he impresses throughout the offseason program.

Redskins' Keith Marshall: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Marshall (elbow) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Marshall is only expected to be sidelined for three weeks, but by placing him on IR the Redskins don't have to face the option of releasing him. The rookie was on the bubble for making the final 53-man roster, as he has been in tight competition with Rob Kelley for the No. 3 spot on the depth chart all preseason. Many believed Kelley had the edge heading into this week, but sending Marshall to IR saves the Redskins from making that tough decision. When he returns to full health, Marshall could be the perfect candidate to return from the IR midseason as each team is allowed to remove a player from injured reserve after Week 6.

Redskins' Keith Marshall: Could be placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Head coach Jay Gruden said Marshall (elbow sprain) may be a candidate for injured reserve, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Marshall is only expected to be out three weeks, but he'd already fallen behind UDFA Rob Kelley in the competition for the No. 3 running back job, which now takes on added importance with Matt Jones (shoulder) uncertain for Week 1. A seventh-round rookie with tremendous athletic measurables but a limited college track record, Marshall would seemingly make for an ideal IR stash. Mack Brown could get a lot of work in the final preseason game, and Washington may consider adding a veteran running back before Week 1.

Redskins' Keith Marshall: Expected to miss three weeks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

An MRI exam revealed that Marshall (elbow) could miss up to three weeks, Chick Hernandez of CSN Washington reports.

The team has yet to comment on Marshall's status heading into the final week of the preseason, but it is expected he will be evaluated in roughly three weeks. The injury comes as the rookie is attempting to secure a spot in Washington's backfield among the likes of Rob Kelley and Mack Brown. Look for more updates to come as Thursday's preseason finale against the Buccaneers nears.
