Jones on IR! Terrell Signed.

Kenyatta Jones lands on injured reserve news services

Washington Redskins: Just eight days after signing Kenyatta Jones to bolster an injury-plagued offensive line, the Redskins have been forced to place him on the injured reserve list, thus ending his season, has learned. The third-year veteran tore a pectoral muscle earlier this week, on his fifth repetition of a 425-pound bench press.

To replace Jones on the roster, the Redskins have signed journeyman offensive lineman Daryl Terrell, released by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the preseason. A sixth-year pro, Terrell has spent most of his career with the New Orleans Saints as a backup. As was the case with Jones, the Redskins signed Terrell through the 2004 season.

The positive side of the injury to Jones, relatively speaking, is that he will be able to fully rehabilitate from previous knee injuries, and should be physically ready for the beginning of training camp. A former fourth-round pick of New England, the versatile Jones was released by the Pats two months ago after he allegedly poured hot water over a personal assistant. That matter is still in the courts.

Washington officials feel that Jones, who started 11 games for the Patriots in 2002, can compete for a starting job next summer.

I questioned why they even signed Jones. Do they think he can take over Moore's center spot? Now our line is dropping like Ramsey. I wanted to say flies, but Ramsey gets killed more. :wink: What is it with our front office signing oft-injured lineman? That's probably why Ramsey has been hit so much.
