ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Cornerback Quinton Dunbar, receiver Trey Quinn and guard Jonathan Cooper have been put on injured reserve by the Washington Redskins. They also signed Josh Johnson to be their backup quarterback and added guard Zac Kerin, center Demetrius Rhaney and defensive end Marcus Smith as free agents.
The Redskins announced the moves Wednesday.
Cooper tore his biceps tendon in Washington’s 28-13 loss at the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night. Dunbar has been bothered by a nerve problem in his leg and appeared in only seven of the Redskins’ 12 games. Quinn, the last pick in this year’s NFL draft, missed Monday’s game with a hurt right ankle and played in only three games this season.
Johnson has not attempted a pass in a regular-season NFL game since 2011.
