In the absence of both Compton and Foster - who was placed on Injured Reserve last month - the Redskins will look to greater production out of third-year Arkansas product Martrell Spaight.

On a busy Tuesday of roster transactions, the Washington Redskins announced the following roster moves.

The Redskins signed running back Byron Marshall off Philadelphia's practice squad to take his place.

Fantasy Impact Kelley exited Sunday loss to the Vikings with ankle and knee injuries early in the first half.

Kelley was hit low in the second quarter, re-injuring his high ankle sprain and spraining his MCL in the process. Kelley had only carried 62 times for 194 yards with three touchdowns, averaging 3.2 yards per carry. The Redskins will move forward with Chris Thompson as their lead back and Samaje Perine trying to do some heavy lifting between the tackles.

Compton suffered a Lisfranc sprain, the same injury that forced defensive lineman Jonathan Allen onto the IR earlier this season. The 2017 fourth-round pick is now averaging just 3.2 yards per carry (210 yards on 66 attempts), but Gruden believes his fresh legs and powerful running style could be an issue against exhausted defenses late in the season. Matt Ioannidis, who has started at tackle in their nickel defense, has missed the last two games with a fractured left hand.
