The Redskins placed running back Rob Kelley and linebacker Will Compton on Injured Reserve Tuesday, compounding what has already been a deeply injury plagued regular season.

They also waived defensive lineman Brandon Banks and, in corresponding moves, signed free agent defensive lineman Caraun Reid, and running back Byron Marshall off the Eagles’ practice squad. Defensive lineman Tavaris Barnes has also been released from the practice squad.

Kelley and Compton were both injured in Sunday’s 38-30 loss to Minnesota. Kelley left the game in the second quarter, re-aggravating a high ankle sprain he had battled through earlier in the season, while also suffering an MCL sprain, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Compton suffered a Lisfranc sprain, the same injury that forced defensive lineman Jonathan Allen onto the IR earlier this season.

Marshall, 23, played in three games for the Eagles in 2016, logging 64 rushing yards on 19 carries, and 10 additional yards on three receptions.

Reid, 25, was selected by Detroit in the fifth round of the 2014 draft, and has appeared in 34 NFL games, between the Lions and Chargers. He has 36 tackles, three sacks, two passes defensed and has recovered two fumbles in that time.
