Redskins expected to sign RB Ryan Grant
Question of the Day
Veteran running back Ryan Grant was at Redskins Park on Tuesday and was expected to sign with Washington, a source confirmed.
The move, which was first reported by CBS Sports, would shore up the Redskins’ depth behind starter Alfred Morris as backups Evan Royster (patellar tendon strain) and Roy Helu Jr. (sprained big toe) are day-to-day with injuries.
Grant reportedly worked out with the Chicago Bears earlier Tuesday before deciding to sign with the Redskins, who did not plan to work him out.
The 29-year-old spent the last five years with the Green Bay Packers, twice surpassing 1,000 yards in a season. He was at his best in 2009, rushing for 1,253 yards and 11 touchdowns, but suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the 2010 opener and managed just 559 yards last year.
In other moves Tuesday, the Redskins signed cornerback David Jones and waived-injured Crezdon Butler, who suffered a hamstring injury Sunday. Jones was with the team in training camp but was cut at the end of the preseason.
Washington also made a pair of practice-squad moves, signing defensive lineman Chigbo Anunoby and releasing defensive lineman Delvin Johnson.
