Redskins place Dunbar, Quinn on injured reserve
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.
