Red­skins place Dun­bar, Quinn on in­jured re­serve

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

ASHBURN | The Red­skins shut down cor­ner­back Quin­ton Dun­bar and wide re­ceiver Trey Quinn for the sea­son Wed­nes­day, mov­ing them to in­jured re­serve after the two had dealt with lin­ger­ing in­juries.

Dun­bar couldn’t over­come a shin in­jury, which had side­lined him for six of the last eight games. The 26-year-old cor­ner­back, who started op­po­site of Josh Nor­man, made mul­ti­ple at­tempts to re­turn from the in­jury, only for it to flare back up again dur­ing games. Dun­bar had been deal­ing with a nerve is­sue in his shin.

Quinn, on the other hand, re­turned for two games after spend­ing weeks on in­jured re­serve with a high-an­kle sprain. But Quinn re-ag­gra­vated the in­jury on Thanks­giv­ing against Dal­las. He missed Mon­day’s game against the Philadel­phia Ea­gles.

The Red­skins also placed guard Jonathan Cooper on in­jured re­serve with a torn bi­ceps.

Wash­ing­ton now has 17 play­ers on in­jured re­serve. The team fin­ished last sea­son with 23 play­ers on IR.

To re­place Dun­bar, Quinn, and Cooper, the Red­skins signed quar­ter­back Josh John­son, cen­ter Demetrius Rhaney, guard Zac Kerin and de­fen­sive end Mar­cus Smith.
