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.
Quinn suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Cardinals, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. Quinn was the second Redskins wide receiver to exit Sunday's season opener with a high-ankle sprain, as Cam Sims was forced out in the first quarter.

Quinn will receive an MRI on his injured lower leg Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Quinn suffered what appeared to be a serious injury to his lower leg in Sunday's season opener. With Cam Sims (ankle) and Maurice Harris (concussion) hurt as well, the Redskins could be entering Week 2 with a very thin wide receiver corps.
Quinn was carted off the field against the Cardinals on Sunday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. Quinn suffered what appeared to be a severe lower leg injury in Sunday's season opener. With Cam Sims (ankle) also sidelined, Washington is left with Jamison Crower, Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson at the wideout position. Expect an update on Quinn's injury after the contest.
Quinn is listed as the backup to Jamison Crowder on Washington's depth chart for Week 1, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Selected with the final pick in April's draft, Mr. Irrelevant 2018 earned a spot on the 53-man roster despite catching just seven passes for 81 yards during the preseason. Quinn may find himself on the inactive list early in the season, but he could eventually be an option in deep PPR leagues if Crowder misses time with an injury. The rookie caught 114 passes for 1,236 yards and 13 touchdowns at SMU last year.
