Quinn (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The Redskins elected to shut Quinn down for at least the next eight weeks after he required surgery Wednesday to address a high-ankle sprain. Quinn, a rookie seventh-round pick, served as Washington's punt returner in the season-opening win over the Cardinals, but didn't see any involvement in the passing game. With Cam Sims (ankle) also heading to IR earlier this week, the Redskins are suddenly lacking in receiving depth behind starters Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson heading into Week 2.
