The Washington Redskins officially put linebacker Shawn Barber on injured reserve yesterday, opening a roster spot that could be filled today by linebacker Lemar Marshall.
Barber, a fourth-year veteran who started on the weak side, suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's 45-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Marshall, 24, spent parts of the past two seasons on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' and Philadelphia Eagles' practice squads. A quick and aggressive player shaped more like a safety at 6-foot-2, 208 pounds, Marshall was one of the Denver Broncos' final cuts this preseason.
Marshall was one of four players who worked out at Redskin Park on the team's day off. The others were all cornerbacks: Anthony Midget (Virginia Tech), Pierson Prioleau (Virginia Tech) and Kato Serwanga (California).
The Redskins are still looking for depth at cornerback after the season-ending knee injury to Donovan Greer. Cornerback Central McClellion was promoted from the practice squad when Greer went on injured reserve. A new corner could join the open spot on the practice squad or replace McClellion.
