ASHBURN — The Redskins have placed veteran defensive end Kedric Golston on season-ending injured reserve, according to coach Jay Gruden.
Golston tore his right hamstring on the first play of Sunday’s 27-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys at FedEx Field. The longest-tenured Washington player at 11 NFL seasons, Golston, 33, might have just played in his final game with the Redskins.
Drafted in the sixth round in 2006, Golston has been a mainstay for years with 142 career games. He was the starting nose tackle this season. The Redskins have promoted rookie defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis, their fifth-round pick in 2016, from the practice squad to replace Golston, who had signed a one-year contract this past March 9 worth $1.005 million.
In another roster move, the Redskins released outside linebacker Lynden Trail from the practice squad.
Ziggy Hood and Cullen Jenkins primarily played nose tackle following Golston’s injury on Sunday.
