The Redskins placed RB Roy Helu on injured reserve Wednesday and announced the signing of veteran RB Ryan Grant.

Helu appeared in the team’s first three games and had two carries for two yards and seven catches for 45 yards. Last year as a rookie, Helu had 151 carries for 640 yards and two touchdowns. He also added 49-379-1 as a receiver.

In Sunday’s loss to the Bengals, Helu suffered a turf toe injury. Grant rushed for 559 yards and two touchdowns on 134 carries last season for the Packers.
