Redskins RB Keith Marshall to Miss Second Straight Year Due to Injury

Redskins running back Keith Marshall tore his right patellar tendon in Saturday night’s practice and will miss the entire 2017 season according to John Keim of ESPN.com.

It is just the latest setback for the 23-year-old Marshall, who missed his rookie season in 2016 with an elbow injury. Originally a seventh-round draft pick out of Georgia, Marshall has a ton of talent but has been plagued with a host of injuries dating back to college. His next NFL carry will also be his first one and time is running out for him to establish himself as a pro.

. With Marshall on the shelf, Washington’s backfield will consist of Rob Kelley, fourth-round rookie Samaje Perine, pass-catcher Chris Thompson, and perhaps preseason phenom Mack Brown. Last year’s Week 1 starter Matt Jones is waiting to be released.
