Chris Baker to IR; Richard Quinn signed

The Washington Redskins have placed nose tackle Chris Baker on injured reserve with a quad injury only a week after promoting him from the practice squad, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed. The team also signed tight end Richard Quinn o the 53-man roster.

Baker spent the entire season on the practice squad before he was promoted Dec. 6. The next day he pulled up lame with a quad injury that initially wasn’t believed to be too serious. Coach Mike Shanahan joked at the time that the team had given Baker ‘’the kiss of death’’ but said he hoped to have the third-year pro back soon.

Quinn was a second-round pick of Denver’s in 2009 but recorded only one catch in two seasons. He was released this past August. Washington is thin at tight end with Fred Davis suspended, Chris Cooley on injured reserve and Mike Sellers nursing a hyperextended elbow.
