ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis was placed on injured reserve Thursday because of a torn muscle in his lower abdomen.

Portis returned from a groin injury Sunday against Tennessee, but lasted only five carries before getting hurt again. He will have surgery and require at least two months of rehabilitation, ending his season with a career-low 227 yards on 54 carries with two touchdowns.

Also Thursday, the Redskins signed running back Andre Brown to the 53-man roster and signed offensive lineman Jacob Bender to the practice squad.
