Marshall (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
This marks the second time in as many years that Marshall has landed on IR before the regular season began. He tore his patella tendon and was waived on Monday. Now that he's cleared waivers he'll be able to remain with the Redskins as he recovers and looks towards next year.
Marshall (knee) was released by the Redskins with an injury designation Monday, Stephen Czarda of Redskins.com reports.
Marshall, a seventh-round pick in 2016, has seen his first two NFL seasons derailed by injuries. Last year, the speedster missed the entire campaign after suffering an elbow injury during the preseason. Following a subsequent return to health, Marshall was reportedly doing well prior to suffering a season-ending torn right patella tendon in practice over the weekend. In a roster move corresponding to Marshall's release, the Redskins signed fellow running back Kenny Hilliard.
Marshall has been diagnosed with a torn right patella tendon and will miss the rest of the season, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
It's another tough blow for Marshall, who also missed his rookie season with an elbow injury. He'll start the long road to recovery and should be placed on injured reserve shortly if the Redskins don't end up waiving him with an injury settlement.
Marshall was carted off the field with an apparent right knee injury during Saturday's practice, ESPN's John Keim reports.
This is another incident in a string of bad injury luck for Marshall, who missed his rookie season with an elbow injury and also suffered a torn ACL during his college career. More updates on Marshall will be available once he's examined by the team's medical staff, but the fact that he was carted off Saturday is certainly concerning. He was considered on the bubble in terms of a roster spot entering camp, so additional missed time does not bode well for Marshall.
Marshall is a candidate for the practice squad, CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler reports.
With Matt Jones likely to be traded or released and Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson all locks to make the team, Marshall and Mack Brown will have to compete for a roster spot that may not exist. Marshall was selected in the seventh round of last year's draft and spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve with an elbow injury, but his top-notch athleticism -- he ran a 4.31 40-yard dash at 219 pounds -- makes him an interesting long-term project to keep on the practice squad. While lacking in athletic upside, Brown likely will enter training camp ahead of Marshall on the depth chart, after playing nine games last season and ripping off a 61-yard touchdown on one of his eight carries.
