ASHBURN | The Washington Red­skins placed start­ing run­ning back Rob Kel­ley and in­side line­backer Will Comp­ton on in­jured re­serve.

The team an­nounced sev­eral moves Tues­day, in­clud­ing sign­ing free agent de­fen­sive line­man Ca­raun Reid and Philadel­phia Ea­gles prac­tice squad run­ning back By­ron Mar­shall.

Kel­ley and Comp­ton were both hurt in Sun­day’s 38-30 loss to the Min­nesota Vik­ings, which dropped Washington’s record to 4-5 head­ing into next week­end’s game at the NFC South-lead­ing New Or­leans Saints. Kel­ley sprained a lig­a­ment in his left knee. Comp­ton sprained a foot.

Kel­ley is third on the team with 194 yards rush­ing, be­hind the only other two run­ning backs who were on the ros­ter un­til Mar­shall’s ad­di­tion: Chris Thomp­son and rookie Sa­maje Per­ine.

Comp­ton’s play­ing time in­creased af­ter orig­i­nal starter Mason Fos­ter went on IR.

Also Tues­day, the Red­skins waived de­fen­sive line­man Bran­don Banks and re­leased de­fen­sive line­man Tavaris Barnes from their prac­tice squad.
