On Saturday the Washington Redskins announced their activation of running back Byron Marshall off of the injured reserve list. Marshall is eligible to play in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.
To make space on the roster, the Redskins also released wide receiver Brian Quick.
The move to add Marshall back on the 53-man roster is not too surprising. Earlier this week Samaje Perine was ruled out for Week 11 with a calf injury. Only Adrian Peterson and Kapri Bibbs were the healthy backs left on the active roster. Chris Thompson is still not available to play.
Before the season even started Marshall was placed on the IR with a sprained ACL and MCL. Those injuries occuring in the second preseason game of the season.
In his second season with Washington, Marshall has only played in four games. Don't expect him to see significant time against the Texans behind Peterson and Bibbs, either. It will probably just be some fill-in opportunities in the backfield. At worst, he sees a notable amount of snaps if one of the two gets dinged up.
The release of Quick comes with Trey Quinn coming back this week as well. Placed on waivers, Quick only had three catches for 18 yards through six games for the Redskins.
