During a game where the Redskins got some players off of the injury list, they added a few more names to it.
Perhaps the most concerning injury is to starting running back Rob Kelley. On one play in the first quarter, he suffered both a sprained ankle and an MCL sprain. The ankle injury was an aggravation of the one that has been affecting him since he first suffered it in Week 4.
Also of concern is the Lisfranc injury suffered by Will Compton, who has been elevated into a starting role at inside linebacker after Mason Foster went on injured reserve. He could be headed to IR himself as such an injury usually has a rehab period of a minimum of eight weeks, often longer depending on the severity.

Jay Gruden said that the team will be looking to add a running back to the roster. Even if Kelley avoids going on injure reserve the team has only two running backs on the roster, rookie Samaje Perine, who took some of the workload after Kelley went out, and third-down back Chris Thompson.
“We’ll have to get another one in quickly,” said Gruden.
They also are likely to find an inside linebacker to bring to the roster. Compton’s injury will elevate Martrell Spaight to the starting inside linebacker job alongside Zach Brown. That leaves only rookie Josh Harvey-Clemons as a reserve.
Kelley has had injury issues all season, having missed games with a rib injury and with the ankle injury. He was just starting to get back to form after the first ankle injury when he went out on Sunday.
Safety DeAngelo Hall had to leave the game in the second quarter with a bone bruise in his knee. He will be day to day, according to Gruden.

Hall has had all kinds of trouble staying healthy in recent years. He just got off the PUP list before last week’s game in Seattle after he spend over a year rehabbing a torn ACL he suffered in Week 3 last year. Since the start of the 2014 season he has played in just 18 games.
Ryan Grant is in the concussion protocol after getting hit by Vikings defensive lineman Linval Joseph after a reception. He initially was cleared to re-enter the game but he was re-examined and it was determined that he had a concussion. Gruden said that he did not go back into the game in between the time he was mistakenly cleared and when the doctors decided to re-examine him.
