The Washington Redskins will place defensive end Kedric Golston on injured reserve with a third-degree MCL tear and a partially torn ACL, and also will re-sign defensive end Darrion Scott, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
Golston suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Redskins 20-9 loss. The sixth-year pro out of Georgia, who has spent all of his career with the Redskins, had 16 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble this season.
Scott opened the season on Washington’s 53-man roster, but was inactive for all of the team’s games. Last Tuesday the team cut him and signed free agent Kentwan Balmer, who made a brief appearance in Sunday’s game.
Scott, a fifth-year pro and former Ohio State standout, appeared in two games for Washington last season.
Golston joins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson (hip), running back Tim Hightower (torn ACL), left guard Kory Lichtensteiger (torn ACL), tight end Chris Cooley (knee), fellow defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins (torn ACL) and cornerback Phillip Buchanon (knee, neck) on the injured reserve list.
