Not only did the Redskins lose on Sunday, but they were dealt with a tough injury. Running back Rob Kelley suffered multiple injuries and is going to be out for a few weeks.
In his second season out of Tulane, Kelley has just 194 yards and three touchdowns. He has played in seven of the first nine games, missing two due to injury. A big year was expected out of Kelley and that hasn't happened.

With Kelley going down, the Redskins needed to make a move to add another running back. Today it was announced that they have signed Byron Marshall off the Eagles practice squad.
Last season, Marshall played in just three games with the Eagles and had just 64 yards on 19 carries.
The Redskins aren't bringing in Marshall to get a lot of carries, but someone to have on their roster to provide more depth.
